Footage of the altercation emerged on Sunday. DaBaby initially claimed that Laws had hit him in the eye with her phone. He threatened legal action before issuing an apology on Instagram.

According to legal documents seen by TMZ, Laws says she is not the person who hit DaBaby with her phone, and claims DaBaby slapped her “suddenly and without any warning.” The rapper's Instagram apology is undermined, Laws says, by a skit DaBaby filmed satirizing the incident.
