Early this week, Kevin Gates was convicted of misdemeanor battery for kicking a female fan at his 2015 concert. Kevin’s wife took to Instagram to address the legal outcome. Dreka Gates wrote:
“You mean to tell me that [Kevin Gates] kicked the girl in the red jumpsuit and knocked the breathe out her? Because that’s what she’s been claiming and testified today in court. If anything her friend choked the f-ck out of her. She claims she fainted, but yet she and her friend stayed at the club at the front of the stage even after this incident. She also acquired a civil attorney early on…what does that tell you? She also touched him FIRST (more than once) without his consent but yet he was the one sentenced to jail today for the same crime. She and her friend also had very conflicting stories and were tripped up in many lies today in the courtroom. It was comical and sad at the same time to see how desperate people are for fame and money. Not to mention the prosecutors wanted to give him 60 days with anger management and community service but yet the judge decided to give him 180 days?!? Are you f-cking kidding me. Inshallah justice will be served. #unjust #f-ckery #polkcounty#smfh by the way, thanks for taking my husband away from our kids (sarcasm)#itsnotoverjustyet”.
Kevin Gates was sentenced to six months in jail for the incident; there is no release date for the rapper at this time.
