The human hurricane that is DaBaby made headlines yet again on Thursday (February 10) after he brawled with the brother of his ex-girlfriend and baby mother, DaniLeigh, at a California bowling alley.
Footage of the fight shows the North Carolina rapper and members of his entourage brutally beating the singer’s sibling, Brandon Curiel (better known as the rapper Brandon Bills), in the middle of the bowling lanes.
DaBaby appeared to initiate the scuffle by throwing the first punch, before he and his team pounced on the outnumbered Curiel and delivered a vicious beatdown that left him with a bloody and swollen face.
The fight stemmed from DaBaby and DaniLeigh’s domestic dispute that played out on social media last November. Curiel previously threatened to knock DaBaby out while coming to his sister’s defence.

As the footage spread like wildfire and turned him into a trending topic on Twitter, DaBaby broke his silence on Thursday by returning to Instagram.
The Blame It On Baby bruiser posted a series of photos showing him striking a celebratory pose and flashing a comical look and wave to the camera.
One of the top comments came from DaBaby’s tour DJ, DJ Trap, who wrote “UFC Champion” along with several crying face emojis. Meek Mill added, “On site mean on site … it’s basically a threat!”
LAPD responded around 1:20 a.m. on Thursday morning to an AD battery (assault with a deadly weapon) call at Corbin Bowl in Tarzana, California. Police have yet to confirm why the deadly weapon charge was added, but TMZ speculates it was because Brandon Curiel was kicked in the head while he was on the ground.
Furthermore, DaBaby and his crew have been banned from ever attending the bowling alley again, TMZ reports. Corbin Bowl staff spent hours cleaning up after the brawl and were forced to re-oil the bowling lanes.
DaBaby’s energy was charged up before he even set foot in the bowling alley. Prior to the fight, the North Carolina native paid a “surprise” visit to Power 106’s L.A. Leakers, where he delivered a ferocious freestyle over Gunna’s DS4Ever tracks “Pushin P” and “Too Easy.”
“N-ggas talking about ‘Baby on the blogs’/ N-gga, so what? Do something, I’m pleading/I ain’t have to show me a n-gga what’s happening in a while/Trigger muthafucking squeezing/Scratching, now that bitch itching/I’m back in this bitch with myself with that iron/Any one of you n-ggas fuck with me wrong or my big bro it’s gon’ be a killing,” he rapped, looking directly into the camera.
