Dababy Charged With Battery Over Alleged Music Video Attack
DaBaby faces criminal charges for allegedly assaulting a man who tried to stop him from making a music video on his property.
The “Rockstar” rapper has been charged with criminal battery by the Los Angeles County District Attorney‘s Office in connection with the December 2020 incident. Gary Pagar claims DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, rented his Runyon Canyon home on the condition that up to 12 people were on site.
Pagar, however, claims daBaby violated the terms of his lease when his artist Stunna 4 appeared with more than 40 other people, including a film crew, to make a music video for “Play U Lay.”

DaBaby raises his voice against attacks
On December 2, Pagar visited the house and tried to shut down the production by talking to DaBaby before he was allegedly attacked by a member of the rapper’s team. TMZ obtained footage showing a man knocking Pagar to the ground before Stunna 4 Vegas broke up the fight.
In February 2021, Pagar sued DaBaby for assault, breach of contract and thousands of dollars in property damages. His agent was also in the suit.
According to the lawsuit, DaBaby ordered the man to stop before pagar allegedly punched him in the face and pulled out his tooth. In addition to being attacked, Pagar claims he was spit on and mocked by the attackers by throwing his phone around him.
Another man, Thankgod Awute, was charged with aggravated burglary. Prosecutors allege DaBaby was a cohort in criminal business.
This is DaBaby’s latest drama. It recently made headlines after new video emerged of the deadly 2018 Walmart shooting. DaBaby claimed he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed 19-year-old Jaylin Craig, but security footage revealed raises questions about his version of events.
Earlier this month, he allegedly shot an intruder who broke into his home in Troutman, North Carolina. The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.
