DaniLeigh has been charged with assault for altercations Sunday night and Monday morning with DaBaby.

The “Lil Bebe” singer, who has a three-month-old daughter with the “Suge rapper, is facing two charges of simple assault, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department confirmed late Monday to ABC Charlotte affiliate WSOC-TV.

DaBaby, whose birth name is Jonathan Kirk, told police late Sunday that DaniLeigh, born Danielle Curiel, assaulted him. Officers returned to the same address Monday morning and Kirk stated Curiel had assaulted him a second time.

DaBaby streamed Sunday’s incident on Instagram Live, and made it known that he was calling the police, saying, “Man, y’all come get her.” DaniLeigh claimed that he has been an absentee father and is trying to force her out of his Charlotte apartment,

In an Instagram Stories post, DaBaby said, “I don’t want no charges pressed or nothing. I just want her peacefully removed, which they need to hurry up [and] do as we speak. I ain’t even want that behavior on display but it’s OK, man this too shall pass, it’s all good.”

“I am a father. That’s the only reason why she is around me,” Kirk added. “If anything else is going to come to light it will come to light. I’m not participating in none of the foolery, man.”

A video posted by DaniLeigh and captured by TMZ showed her being questioned by police. She said, “I just feel like this is so unfair this situation…Nothing but genuine pure love for this man from the jump three years ago.”

“We have a child. Its very unfortunate,” DaniLeigh continued. “I will leave. I dropped everything for my baby to know her dad.. I will go figure it out.
