Prosecutors are determined to send Kodak Black away for eight years. Kodak is accused of violating his probation and assaulting a strip club worker.
Among the probation violations Kodak is accused of includes the rapper allegedly burping incessantly during his anger management class and grabbing the wrist of his counselor, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Ramona Sanchez, Kodak Black’s anger management counselor, told the court Project Baby intentionally disrupted the session by repeatedly burping.
Sanchez asked Kodak to leave, but he refused. Sanchez threatened to call the police, and he responded by grabbing her phone and wrist.
Sanchez recommended an individual therapy would be a better fit for Kodak instead of a group setting.
Prosecutors hope the assault accusations of a Club Lexx employee will be enough to send Kodak away.
Jennifer Cunningham, 34, told police Kodak “approached her and started acting belligerent” around 3 a.m., Sun-Sentinel reports.
“After I pushed him away he started swinging his hands towards me, like he was tying to attack me,” Jennifer Cunningham said, according Local 10 News. “As he’s trying to attack me, I’m grabbing (his arms) to defend myself.”
Cunningham admitted she didn’t see a doctor for her injuries until two weeks after the alleged assault. Cunningham did, however, file a report the day of the incident.
No formal charges have been filed in the alleged incident.
“Basically, I was a victim and assaulted by a gentleman that had no right to put his hands on me,” Cunningham said, according to the Sun-Sentinel. “And I don’t tolerate that.”
Cunningham reportedly said the rapper got up on the bar while she was working, preventing her from accessing a cooler to serve drinks to customers. When she asked Kodak to get down from the bar, he made a handgun gesture with two fingers and pushed them against her temple. She pushed Kodak away, and then he started swinging at her, and kicked her near her right shoulder.
She told the court she emailed Kodak’s manager threatening to sue the rapper for monetary damages.
In Kodak’s second hearing on Friday, April 21, another Club Lexx bartender, Tanya Durham, took the stand to refute Cunningham’s claims, saying she never saw the rapper touch her co-worker.
“She said, ‘You probably didn’t see it, but he mushed my face,’” Durham said, recalling a conversation with Cunningham the next morning, according to the Sun-Sentinel. “I said ‘no, he didn’t.’ None of that happened.”
Durham denied being paid by Kodak’s team to fabricate a story.
Prosecutors are pushing for eight years if they can prove to judge that the assault occurred, according to the Sun-Sentinel. If they can’t prove it, they are asking for six years.
Kodak’s next hearing is scheduled to continue, and possibly conclude on Wednesday, according to Sun-Sentinel.
