DaniLeigh and DaBaby have a child together, WSOC reported.

DaBaby, whose legal name is Jonathan Kirk, told responding officers late Sunday that Curiel assaulted him, and he was advised to pursue charges against her the following morning at the magistrate’s office. However, officers were called to the same uptown address Monday morning, and Kirk stated that Curiel assaulted him a second time, the TV station reported.

“As a result of the investigation, Curiel was served with a Criminal Summons for Simple Assault. Officers also obtained additional information that led them to charge Curiel with a second count of Simple Assault from the incident on Nov. 14,” a representative for Charlotte-Mecklenburg police told Rolling Stone in a prepared statement.

Sunday’s incident began with an argument between the two entertainers that was streamed on Instagram Live, the magazine reported.

In the clip, which was shared widely online on Monday, Kirk can be seen feeding the couple’s infant daughter, while Curiel claimed that he has been an absentee father and is now trying to force her out of his Charlotte apartment, Rolling Stone reported.

In an Instagram Stories post published a short while later, Kirk appealed for a rapid police response in the hopes it would defuse the situation.

“I don’t want no charges pressed or nothing. I just want her peacefully removed, which they need to hurry up [and] do as we speak. I ain’t even want that behavior on display but it’s OK, man this too shall pass, it’s all good,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Curiel hurled insults and accusations at Kirk in a profanity-laden Instagram Stories post of her own, but no arrests or removals were made Sunday night, Rolling Stone reported.

The online arguments then continued Monday morning, and police were called for a second time at about 9:35 a.m., resulting in Curiel’s arrest, the magazine reported.

Kirk is a Charlotte native, WSOC reported.
