Music artists DaBaby and DaniLeigh have reportedly had an on-and-off-again relationship and recently welcomed their first child together in August. On Sunday, November 14, the two recently got into a heated, public exchange on Instagram Live, which peaked with DaBaby appearing to ask DaniLeigh to exit his home, along with their infant. He also called the authorities on the 25-year-old singer.
DaniLeigh says the altercation began after she had emergency contraception sent to his home. It was then that DaBaby demanded she leaves his home with their newborn. In one of DaniLeigh’s lives, the police are shown arriving at the property to de-escalate the situation.
The North Carolina rapper — born Jonathan Lyndale Kirk —released a statement on his Instagram Stories following the argument, explaining his desire to remove himself from “the hostile behavior put on display.”
“Based on my reputation, with multiple threats of setting up an internet scheme & a person refusing to not let me go. Me and somebody else here knew to record her. I don’t beat on and yelled at and chased around like one of them fatal love attraction type girls.” The rapper ended the statement by promoting his upcoming project and tour, beginning November 26th.
DaniLeigh released a statement shortly after DaBaby on the argument. “Since Baby want put up a ‘statement’ with his cap a*s, I’ll put mine up … so we have been living with each other for the past three months since our baby been born. Tonight he wanna come in the room talking bout ‘I need to go’ don’t matter where I go…mind u…I have a newborn child,” the singer shared on her Instagram Story. “I really shoulda jus listened to the cap a*s internet about this man!!!! Ima learn and ima grow…but this here, aint it.”
Since the altercation DaBaby has received extreme backlash online, especially in regards to his past behavior towards women.
“Da baby x Dani really proof that no matter how beautiful and loyal you think are, If a man has a reputation of mistreating women (particularly Black women) you aren’t an exception. He has poor character & will inevitably disrespect you the same way he the did women preceding you.” said user @dylanali_ via Twitter.
The couple appeared on Instagram Live again on Monday continuing to exchange words, with DaBaby calling DaniLeigh his “certified side b*tch”. The singer responded by sharing several photos and videos of them together.
