Kevin Gates Wife Blast Judge For Putting Rapper In Jail

Kevin Gates is currently serving 180 days in jail for kicking a woman and his wife is not happy about the sentence.

Gates, real name Kevin Jerome Gilyard, kicked a woman in her chest during a performance last year. He was found guilty of assault and was sentenced to six months behind bars. His wife Dreka was furious about the sentence as evident in a lengthy Instagram post. She also posted a video of the incident showing the Baton Rouge rapper kicking in the direction of the female.

“You mean to tell me that@iamkevingates kicked the girl in the red jumpsuit and knocked the breathe out her?” she wrote in the caption of a video of the incident. “Because that’s what she’s been claiming and testified today in court. If anything her friend choked the f**k out of her.”

There are still some doubts as to whether or not the kick did landed on the female.

“She claims she fainted, but yet she and her friend stayed at the club at the front of the stage even after this incident,” Dreka added. “She also acquired a civil attorney early on…what does that tell you? She also touched him FIRST (more than once) without his consent but yet he was the one sentenced to jail today for the same crime.”
