Over the weekend, rapper Kevin Gates was taped kicking a women with tremendous force after she touched his leg. Well, the mother of that 18-year-old is stepping forward on her daughter’s behalf.
Kristy Irelan, the mother of the18-year-old woman, says her child went to a hospital and had a CT scan after the assault. She told Florida’s WFLA that her daughter was excited to see the controversial performer.
“She told me that she was excited to see him and next thing she knows she was kicked in the chest and she was passed out. … It pisses me off. I don’t care who you are- an NFL player, just a regular person or a rapper- you don’t come to anybody’s home town and kick anybody- she did not deserve that.” (WFLA)
Irelan didn’t state the results of the stay at the hospital or if they would be seeking legal action against Gates.
The rapper has not commented on the incident as of this writing.
