The 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, later took to Instagram live to demand alternate footage of the incident, offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who could provide it.
“I got $10,000 for whoever got a good angle of shawty hitting me in my eye with her phone,” he said. “Who know shawty government name so my lawyer can get active?”
The assault is merely the latest in a string of incidents involving the rapper, who last year celebrated his album “Kirk” becoming the best selling album in the United States. Over the past few months, he has been filmed assaulting a hotel worker, attacking an airport employee, although both individuals declined to press charges.
In January, Dababy was also arrested and charged with battery and robbery after attacking a concert promoter. Prosecutors have since dropped the charges of battery, but still intend to pursue charges of robbery after he allegedly stole the man’s phone, credit card, and cash.
