DABABY has been sued for “allegedly sucker-punching” a rental property owner for a music video and “knocking out his tooth.”
Back in January, the rapper was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon while out shopping in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
DaBaby, 29, has landed in hot water once more after he was sued by Gary Pagar, the owner of a Runyon Canyon vacation rental home, according to Variety.
According to the court docs obtained by the outlet, Pagar sued DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, after he allegedly assaulted him and stole his phone when he tried to shut down an unauthorized music video shoot last December.
Pagar claimed that DaBaby rented the property on condition that no more than 12 people would be on site, taking in consideration coronavirus restrictions.
However, he claimed that the rapper brought 40 people to the home to shoot a music video, violating the terms of the lease.
When the property owner went over to the home to shut down the music video, he claimed that he was knocked to the ground by an unknown assailant, the news outlet reported.
He further claimed that DaBaby got out of a car, in which Jake Paul was also in, and chased him into the home.
According to the court filings, DaBaby warned him to not call the police and then “sucker-punched” him in the mouth and knocking out a tooth.
He further claimed that he was also spat on and taunted as several guests tossed his phone between them.
Pagar claimed that another person called the police and DaBaby, along with his crew, fled the scene, taking the homeowner’s phone and “valuable kitchenware.”
The lawsuit further claims that the rapper left behind thousands of dollars in damage and has only paid part of the rental bill.
One of the things the rapper destroyed was a security camera in order to conceal that there were more than 12 people in the home, Pagar claimed.
Pagar also sued DaBaby’s manager, Kinsza Virgil.
DaBaby’s new court case comes just days after he was forced to apologize to Dance Moms’ alum, JoJo Siwa, after he called her a “b***h” in a song.
In his new song, BeatBox Freestyle, he rapped: “N***a you a b***h/ JoJo Siwa, b***h/ She let the wrong n***a get rich.”
Fans quickly ran to JoJo’s aid and slammed the rapper for picking on a 16-year.
“[JoJo] my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan,” he tweeted on Monday after his lyrics prompted outrage. “I bought her every product you have out. She think she you.
“Don’t let em trick you into thinking id ever have a problem with you.
“My word play just went over their heads. All love on my end shawty, Keep [shining]!”
DaBaby was also arrested back in January when he was caught carrying a concealed weapon inside a Beverly Hills store.
He was charged on one count of carrying a concealed weapon – a 9mm firearm – and another count of carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle.
He is meant to show up in court in March.
