DaniLeigh had a child with DaBaby

DaBaby and DaniLeigh began dating in 2020. They dated on and off for the next year, and in July 2021, the two seemed to confirm that they were expecting parents preparing to welcome a new child. DaniLeigh gave birth to their daughter in August.

But despite being new parents together, the two have made headlines with their public spats on social media. It all came to a head in November 2021, when they got in an argument that resulted in DaBaby calling the police.

DaniLeigh has been charged with assaulting DaBaby

It all started when DaBaby went on Instagram Live while next to DaniLeigh, who was holding their three-month-old child. The Live only lasted a short time, but they got into a heated exchange in front of their daughter.

DaBaby demanded that she leave his house and find a hotel to stay in. According to Rolling Stone, police responded to two separate calls at DaBaby’s home in Charlotee, North Carolina during the dispute. Both times, the Blame It On Baby rapper accused DaniLeigh of assaulting him.

Their fight was documented on social media, as the two continued to bicker over multiple Instagram posts and videos throughout the night into the next morning.

Officers made their first visit at around 11:59 p.m. when they responded to DaBaby’s domestic assault call. Footage from DaniLeigh’s Instagram Live broadcast showed cops arriving to DaBaby’s home, although the officers left without making an arrest.

But the next morning around 9:35 a.m., officers returned to the same location when DaBaby once again accused DaniLeigh of assault. Unlike their first visit, however, the cops found enough evidence to cite her for two misdemeanor assaults.

DaBaby didn’t want to press charges at first

A representative from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department confirmed in a statement that the two incidents and that two simple assault charges were filed against DaniLeigh, whose real name is Danielle Curiel.

“As a result of the investigation, Curiel was served with a Criminal Summons for Simple Assault,” the statement read. “Officers also obtained additional information that led them to charge Curiel with a second count of Simple Assault from the incident on November 14.”

In DaBaby’s initial statement about the incident, he insisted that he didn’t want to get the police involved. “I don’t want no charges pressed or nothing,” he said at the time. “I just want her peacefully removed.” DaBaby has had run-ins with the law himself in the past for alleged battery and weapons charges.

Finally, DaniLeigh took her things and has since moved out of DaBaby’s home. Not only that, but she took their three-month-old daughter with her. “I left and me and my baby safe,” she revealed on Instagram on Monday. “Thank y’all for the support.”
