Rapper Dababy has reportedly won a $6 million federal lawsuit charging him of violence, contract breach, and defamation.

The Miami-based concert promoter Kenneth Carey was allegedly beaten and robbed by the North Carolina rapper, the actual name Jonathan Kirk, who also reneged on a nearly three-year-old agreement to host an event.

A jury decided in favour of DaBaby on Monday (December 19), according to TMZ, following a five-day trial. In a countersuit brought by the rapper, Carey and fellow plaintiff Steve Anyadike were both found to be liable for invasion of privacy and unlawful use of name or likeness.

“Along with our client, Jonathan Kirk (DaBaby), we are thrilled that this federal jury, after a five-day trial, came to the same conclusion that we have maintained for almost three years — that these plaintiffs were attempting to use the legal system to shake down Mr. Kirk,” the rapper’s attorney, Drew Findling, said.

“Mr. Kirk deserves all the credit in the world for not caving into these plaintiffs’ cash demands and having the confidence in the facts and his legal team to take this to a jury trial for a complete and total victory!”

Findling also celebrated the victory on Instagram, posting a photo of him, DaBaby and the rest of his legal team flashing smiles and throwing up hand gestures for the camera outside the courthouse.
