The owner of a Runyon Canyon rental property filed a lawsuit on Monday (Feb. 22), alleging that DaBaby assaulted him and stole his phone when he tried to shut down an unauthorized music video shoot last December.
In the suit, obtained by Variety, Gary Pagar claims that DaBaby (real name Jonathan Kirk) rented the home on condition that no more than 12 people would be on site, in adherence with COVID-19 restrictions. However, Pagar alleges that DaBaby violated the terms of the lease and brought around 40 people to the property.
When Pagar, 64, went to the home to shut down the production, he alleges that he was attacked by an unknown assailant. Pagar says that DaBaby then got out of a car and chased him into the house, warning him not to call police. He then allegedly sucker-punched him in the mouth, knocking out a tooth and leaving him bloody.
