Kevin Gates has been sentenced to six months in jail for kicking a fan at a concert in 2015. According to TMZ the rapper was found guilty of battery for the altercation and sentenced to 180 days in Polk County Jail.
After the incident, a video of the kick circulated the internet showing a fan tugging on Gates’ shorts from the front row resulting in the rapper responding with a kick.
Following his sentencing, Gates’ wife Dreka took to social media with the video, while expressing her displeasure with the verdict.
“You mean to tell me that @iamkevingates 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,” she wrote. “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.”
