DaBaby is facing a civil lawsuit for alleged assault, and has recently requested a postponement of the trial date.
According to RadarOnline, the lawsuit was brought forward by Gary Pagar, who claims that he rented his home to DaBaby and his team for the purpose of filming a music video.
Pagar claims the agreement signed between the both parties stated that no more than 12 people were allowed on the property at once. However, upon arrival at the home, Pagar found over 40 people and confronted DaBaby, which ended in an attack.
Pagar claims DaBaby chased him inside his home where he punched him in the face and had multiple teeth fall out as a result. DaBaby allegedly fled the scene before police arrived. Pager said his home was damaged severely which cost him thousands to repair.
DaBaby is also facing a pending criminal case for the alleged battery charge brought forward by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
In a recent motion, DaBaby’s legal team requested the trial date be pushed to October 2023, as DaBaby “cannot be called to testify in this matter until after his criminal case has been resolved.”
“If the trial date is not continued, [DaBaby] will not be able to respond to discovery or testify without providing information that could potentially incriminate him in the parallel criminal case. The trial date must be continued to protect [DaBaby’s] Fifth Amendment rights.”
The judge agreed with the request and the new trial date has been set for October 23, 2023.
