Per TMZ, Bills is reportedly suing DaBaby over the fight for assault, battery, emotional distress, and negligence. In the court documents, Bills said he walked by him in the bowling alley when he was attacked without warning by the rapper and his crew. Prior to the fight, Bills said on social media he wanted to fight DaBaby because of his treatment of DaniLeigh, with whom the North Carolina rapper shares a child.
Shortly after the clip went viral, DaBaby claimed he acted in self-defense. "Self defense. Shouldn’t run around threatening people," he told TMZ. Complex has reached out to DaBaby’s for comment.
The bowling alley where the fight took place, Corbin Bowl in Topanga, California, reportedly banned DaBaby from the premises as a result of the brawl. Local authorities said he’s under investigation for assault with a deadly weapon, as the video clearly shows him involved while his crew appeared to throw the majority of the punches. The investigation is focusing on DaBaby potentially having kicked Bills in the head when he fell to the ground.
DaniLeigh and DaBaby’s split made headlines last year, at which point she called him an “evil ass man.” Dani’s mother said the relationship was “clearly a toxic situation,” while the rapper faced criticism for streaming her breastfeeding their child amid a fight.
