Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, better known by his stage name “DaBaby” was filmed allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend’s brother at a bowling alley on Thursday morning.

He can be seen in the video swinging at Brandon Bills, the brother, with several members of his entourage joining in on the melee. Several people slipped and fell as the brawl made its way down one of the lanes.

At one point in the video, one of the unnamed men grabbed Bills by his hair as the rapper, who started the fight, stood watching nearby.

Bills and his sister, DaniLeigh, reacted to the fight in their own Instagram posts. The ex-girlfriend, who has a daughter by DaBaby, was saddened by the altercation and insinuated that it wasn’t a fair fight because the rapper brought a group of people with him to fight one single guy.

Bills made a video, also calling out the rapper for not engaging in a one-on-one conversation when he tried to speak to him “like a man.”

It is likely the fight was prompted as the result of another altercation between DaBaby and DaniLeigh in 2021, which took place in front of their child and was captured on Instagram Live. DaniLeigh was arrested and charged with two counts of simple assault, and ended up moving out of the rapper’s home with their child. She made a post to that effect on her Instagram as well.

“I left and me and my baby safe. Thank y’all for the support,” she wrote

Following that blow-up, Bills took to the internet to defend his sister by appearing to challenge DaBaby to a “one-on-one” fight. The bowling alley brawl could have been the rapper’s answer to that challenge, though he did not come by himself as the brother suggested.

“When you come to the West Coast, bro, which I know you be out here, you’re going to catch this one-on-one fade, bro,” he said in a video. “One-on-one fade to see what happens between me and you. I want to see how gangsta you are, to see how much of a real man you are.”
