DaBaby made headlines after attacking a female fan during his recent show.
Now the woman he slapped has come forward. In an interview with TMZ, Tyronesha Laws told her side of the story and says she doesn’t buy the rapper’s insincere apology.
She explains what happened on March 7 during DaBaby’s show at Whiskey North in Tampa. She had returned from the photo booth when security told fans to move out of the way because DaBaby was coming through. That’s when the woman next to her brought out her phone and turned on the flash before reaching up.
“I’m not sure if she hit him with the phone. I know the flash was on the phone,” said Laws. “And all of a sudden he smacks me and when he smacks me, I fall down onto her and somebody else.”
After claiming that the woman first hit him with her phone, DaBaby later issued an apology and offered to fly out Laws, who was unidentified at the time, and apologize in person.
But days later, he seemed to make light of the incident by starring in a skit with comedian Michael Blackson. “He still makes a joke about it,” said Laws. “I don’t feel like he was sincere with the apology. I was embarrassed, I got people calling me, writing me on Instagram.”
