Update: DaniLeigh’s Brother Still Struggling To Serve DaBaby Over 2022 Brawl, Seeks Permission To Inform Rapper Of Suit Via A Newspaper

Update: (Apr. 9, 2024): DaBaby is apparently (still) dodging his ex’s brother.

According to a report from RadarOnline, DaniLeigh’s Brother, Brandon Bills, has officially asked the court for permission to serve the father of his sister’s child, DaBaby, by placing a notice in a local newspaper. He hired a private investigator to locate and serve DaBaby in 2023 but was unsuccessful in tracking the “BOP” rapper down.

Last year, he informed the court of his plans to serve the music artist via an alternative method should his P.I. route fail.

A judge has yet to rule on Bill’s recent motion.

As previously reported, in February 2022, DaniLeigh’s Brother was allegedly jumped by DaBaby and his associates at a Los Angeles bowling alley. According to the rapper, Bills initiated the physical dispute. As you may recall, the incident occurred after DaniLeigh and DaBaby had a public falling-out of their own.

Following the bowling alley fight, the LAPD launched an investigation into DaBaby for assault with a deadly weapon as it was believed he kicked Bills at some point during the altercation. However, it was reported that Bills’ refusal to cooperate with police quickly brought the investigation to a close.

Original Story: (Dec. 5, 2023): An assault lawsuit against DaBaby, brought by the brother of his ex-girlfriend DaniLeigh, seems to be moving forward.

According to a report from Radar Online, the singer’s sibling is asking a court judge for help in the case, as he’s been unable to successfully serve the rapper with the lawsuit.

In case you’re unfamiliar, DaniLeigh’s brother Brandon Bills has been attempting to sue his sister’s ex, DaBaby, since the two fought in a bowling alley back in February of last year. However, it’s reported that the case hasn’t made any real headway as the “Suge” artist, real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, 31, has proven unable to be tracked down.

Reportedly, Bills wrote in a recent court motion that he hasn’t been able to “locate and serve” the rap star. Offering a solution to the problem, he reportedly asked for permission to serve DaBaby with an ad placed in a local newspaper if the private investigators he’s hired are unsuccessful in the pursuit.

A judge reportedly has not yet decided on the matter. The amount in damages Bills is seeking from the case has not been disclosed. However, the celebrity’s brother said he’s suffered physical and psychological damage as a result of the incident. Additionally, Bills claimed he’s incurred medical debt and sustained disability from being kicked in the head. If you recall, video footage of the altercation did show DaBaby throwing the first punch, subsequently jumping Bills with the aid of his associates.

Police reportedly investigated the rapper on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, as they reportedly believed Bills had been kicked in the head. However, it doesn’t seem that any official charges were filed. That could explain why the case was initially stalled on Bills’ behalf. As we previously covered, Bills was reportedly not cooperating with authorities’ investigation into the matter, temporarily putting a standstill on things. However, it appears that things are back in motion as Bills is now attempting to officially have the rapper served.

DaBaby’s legal team has maintained he was only acting in self-defense. His lawyers said that Bills‘ was the one who initiated threats, while seemingly defending his sister’s honor. If you recall, DaniLeigh and DaBaby had a pretty nasty break-up after they welcomed a child together. The former couple got into many public fights, with one heated argument resulting in DaniLeigh, real name Danielle Leigh Curiel, 28, being arrested and charged with assault.

It doesn’t appear that DaBaby’s reps have said anything about Bills‘ latest filing at this time.
