DaBaby reportedly roughed up a hotel worker back in December and the video of the incident has surfaced.
On Saturday (Jan. 18), TMZ published surveillance video from the Beverly Hills hotel where the altercation allegedly went down on Dec. 19. In the video, the North Carolina rapper is seen following a man into the building with his crew in tow.
He then pushes the man into a wall. The unidentified hotel worker lands in a chair and the rapper appears to berate him for several seconds before leaving.
According to the celebrity news site, the hotel employee initially followed DaBaby into the parking lot to try and get a photo with the Grammy-nominated MC. DaBaby reportedly turned the man down and he began to walk back into the building.
That’s where the video allegedly picks up. It is unclear what caused the situation to escalate. No police were called and the rapper and his crew reportedly left without further incident.
DaBaby’s attorney, Michael Heiskell, has released a statement about the video. “Any actions taken by DaBaby were likely in self defense based upon his recall of the events and until the video is thoroughly reviewed we have no further comment at this time,” he said.
The incident sounds similar to a situation that went down last May where members of the rapper’s security beat up a rapper who allegedly swung at them after reportedly being angered when he got turned down for a photo with DaBaby.
The “Suge” has had multiple run-ins with the law over the past few months. He started off 2020 by getting arrested for the alleged battery of a promoter in Miami. In December, he was arrested in North Carolina on marijuana charges.
