Tyronesia Laws, the woman who claims that rapper Dababy slapped her at a Tampa Bay show last week, has formally filed a lawsuit against the rapper, despite him claiming that she was not the woman he assaulted.

In a statement to Billboard, Laws' lawyers Matt Morgan and Chelsea Cromer said: "Morgan & Morgan has filed a formal lawsuit against DaBaby relating to the incident in Tampa. The incident was outrageous and shocking. We have requested a jury trial and look forward to presenting all of the surrounding circumstances to a jury of our client's peers. Our goal is to deter similar conduct in the future and send a message that this type of behavior is not tolerated in America."

The woman spoke to TMZ last week and stated that she was the victim of the viral assault, and says that the incident was humiliating, rejecting his apology as insincere. DaBaby's attorney, Drew Findling, says that the victim was not Laws.
