DaBaby’s legal woes are not over just yet.
At the end of last year, “Bop” rapper DaBaby found himself on the wrong side of the law following a show in his hometown of Charlotte. Whilst he was performing, police officers allegedly searched his vehicle and discovered marijuana. It resulted in DaBaby being taken into custody and a citation being issued which seemed to spark a snowball affect to his recent run-ins with the law. If he hoped that all his legal issues were in the past, that is sadly not the reality.
According to the Blast, a model who starred in the music video for his track “Vibez” is alleging that the 2-second-long footage of her endorses pornography. The model, Marjorie Guaracho, issued a cease and desist letter to DaBaby’s label, Interscope, seeking punitive damages and attorney fees.
In response to the model’s claims, DaBaby’s team has filed a counter-suit on the basis that the video vixen was aware of the video’s nature, was paid for her appearance, and signed a release which voids needs rights.
This comes weeks after DaBay, born Jonathan Kirk, was involved in another police run-in while in Miami. This time, the matter was connected to a robbery investigation after members of his team supposedly assaulted and robbed a music music promoter who only paid DaBaby $20,000 of the $30,000 he was owed for a performance. Authorities arrested the artist on charges of battery after it emerged that he had an outstanding warrant related to a battery charge in Texas and kept him in custody for 48 hours.
“Please stop talking to me about that weak a** 48 hours I spent in jail and that failed attempt to break my spirits & interrupt the path I’m taking to my God given success,” the musician wrote on IG after his release. “Don’t allow yourself to be mislead by janky promoters and lazy a** grown men itching for the opportunity to file a lawsuit that they won’t win.”
We will see if he has any luck with this latest lawsuit.
