DaBaby and his legal team are celebrating a big win that has been years in the making as DaBaby wins the $6 Million lawsuit against him stemming from a 2020 fight while he was in Miami.
You may recall, DaBaby and his crew were initially hit with allegations of beating and robbing a concert promoter named Kenneth Carey and his friend. They claimed they’d lost personal items, including money and a cell phone, during a fight recorded by bystanders.
According to TMZ, the fight was over payment for a Miami event Carey put together and hired DaBaby to host. When the sides disagreed over payment, it turned into a street fight.
Prosecutors dropped a criminal battery charge against DaBaby, but he was still served with a $6 million federal lawsuit over the incident. The trial ended on Monday December 19, 2022, with the jury finding in favor of the “ROCKSTAR” rapper.
DaBaby’s attorney Drew Findling told TMZ Hip Hop, “Along with our client, Jonathan Kirk (DaBaby), we are thrilled that this federal jury, after a five-day trial, came to the same conclusion that we have maintained for almost 3 years – that these plaintiffs were attempting to use the legal system to shake down Mr. Kirk.”
Findling continued, “Mr. Kirk deserves all the credit in the world for not caving in to these plaintiffs’ cash demands and having the confidence in the facts and his legal team to take this to a jury trial for a complete and total victory!”
