Rapper DaBaby has apologized for hitting a woman during his concert on March 7 while he was walking through a crowd in the audience. The incident occurred at Whiskey North in Tampa during his “Up Close N Personal” tour. Allegedly, the woman — who has been identified as Tyronesha Laws — was trying to get a picture of the rapper, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, with her camera flash on.
DaBaby claims that he thought Laws was a man, adding that the camera flash made it difficult to see clearly. DaBaby subsequently took full responsibility for the incident and apologized. After the assault, DaBaby left the stage and did not return.
However, Laws has obtained attorney Matt Morgan to represent her, saying on her behalf: “Morgan & Morgan has been retained to represent the interest of Tyronesha Laws. Ms. Laws has received DaBaby’s Instagram message. We look forward to speaking with Mr. Kirk,” said a statement from the lawyer.
