Rapper Kevin Gates addresses allegations he kicked a female fan with new song

Musician insists he had 'already warned her' after being charged with battery

US rapper Kevin Gates has released a new song in which he addresses allegations that he kicked a female fan.

Gates, 29, was accused of attacking an 18-year-old woman during a concert in Florida last week. According to the Lakeland Police Department, “turned and deliberately kicked [Miranda] Dixon in the stomach/chest area” at a show on Friday (August 28). The incident “caused [Dixon] to lose consciousness for a brief period of time”.

The musician, who claimed that he was reacting to Dixon touching his trouser leg, has now released a song titled ‘The Truth’ in which he discusses the incident. The track includes the lyrics: “All in the news ’bout what happened in Florida/She grabbed my dick over and yanked it/Two or three times I had already warned her.” Gates, whose real name is Kevin Jerome Gilyard, also claims in the song that his children were at the show and witnessed the altercation.

Kevin Gates made headlines earlier this year after he revealed – and later defended – that he was having sex with his cousin. In February, the rapper also claimed that he broke up with a woman because she refused to give his dog fellatio.

His latest mixtape, ‘Luca Brasi 2’, was released in December 2014.
