According to TMZ, the promoter has filed suit against DaBaby, his entertainment company and some of the aforementioned entourage for battery, breach of contract, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and more. Carey wants damages & costs of $6 million+ dollars for his interactions with DaBaby.
Allegedly, the promoter says that DaBaby agreed to host a party that rapper Stunna 4 Vegas had been booked to perform at. The promoter states that they agreed to a flat rate of $20K. When DaBaby and his entourage landed in Miami, the promoter also arranged ground transportation and hotels.
It’s the rental cars that added additional context to the story – because one of them allegedly was returned damaged, which incurred additional fees and charges. When the time came to wrap up the business and settle all outstanding debts, all hell broke loose and that’s where the tale of battery begins.
DaBaby, wanting to collect on his $20K payment, then told the promoter Carey that they were billed for the damages to the car – and that Carey needed to pay them another $10K on top of the $20K they were already owed to cover the damage. Carey also claims that DaBaby insisted that it was the least that Carey could do since he was basically appearing for much lower than his usual rate.

DaBaby and his crew then doubled down, also taking Carey’s phone, credit cards and money that he had on his person. The last salt in the wound was neither DaBaby OR Stunna 4 Vegas showed up for the event. While DaBaby bailed himself out of this (and other altercations in the recent months), with the video evidence on hand, who knows if he’ll be “bopping” anywhere else soon.
