After Tyronesha Laws stepped forward to give her account of what happened that shocking night at Da Baby’s Tampa concert, she has officially filed a lawsuit against the rapper. Meanwhile, his camp denies that the woman identified is the one he made contact with.
In a video that went viral on social media, Da Baby could be seen slapping a person after a flashing light came too close for comfort. The rapper apologized and then mocked the incident when he recreated it in a parody video with Michael Blackson.
It was quite possibly the worst thing that he could do considering that the person that he slapped ended up being a woman.
Additionally, Tyronesha is claiming that she was an innocent bystander. That’s right — she says that she wasn’t even the one who had her flash on that caused Da Baby to respond the way he did.

She has retained law partners Matt Morgan and Chelsea Cromer to represent her in a lawsuit.
The attorney’s told TMZ: ‘Our goal is to deter similar conduct in the future and send a message that this type of behavior is not tolerated in America.’
Tyronesha, who said she had a contusion on her cheek as a result of the attack, is seeking damages for battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and more.
However, Da Baby’s attorneys deny that Laws is the woman who was affected from this incident.
They claim that people have been coming out of the woodwork in order to play the victim but the true identity of the person int he video has yet to be confirmed.
If Tyronesha is telling the truth about having to receive medical attention after being slapped and can place herself at the time and place of the violent incident — she will most likely win this case.
