DaniLeigh and DaBaby
The singer started dating rapper DaBaby in December 2020, and the former lovers share a three-month-old daughter. However, their relationship does not seem to be in a great place at the moment. It is alleged that the R&B star assaulted her baby daddy on 14th and 15th November 2021, which prompted him to call the cops.
The hip-hop artist recorded DaniLeigh on Instagram live to ensure the singer does not turn the situation against him. The authorities made an investigation on Monday 15th and found enough evidence to charge her with two misdemeanour assaults. Later that afternoon, she flew out of North Carolina with their baby.
The singer loved music from an early age but kicked off her career as a dancer at 12 years old. She started covering songs from popular musicians and later moved to Los Angeles, where she became a backup dancer and choreographer alongside her sister.
In 2013, the artist was sought by the late Prince to direct the video to his single Breakfast Can Wait. The late singer also offered her musical mentorship. The Miami native saw a major breakthrough in her music career after releasing her single Play.
She then signed to Def Jam Records and released her first EP titled Summer With Friends in 2017. The following year she dropped another project titled The Plan, followed by My Present (2019), which had features from famous hip-hop artists like Lil Baby.
Other DaniLeigh's albums include Movie (2020) and Dominican Mami: The Playlist (2021). The diva earned RIAA platinum certification in 2020 for her tracks Lil Bebe and Easy.
DaniLeigh's net worth
The artist's music career has been skyrocketing since she gained fame in 2017. So, how rich is she in 2021? Her exact net worth is not known, but it is estimated at $2 million. The star earns about $250,000 per year from music and dance.
DaniLeigh is a hardworking lady who turned her passion for music into a thriving career. Fans hope that DaniLeigh's baby grows up in a peaceful environment and are also waiting for another hot project to drop soon.
