Kevin Gates Charged With Simple Battery After Kicking Female Fan In The Chest



Kevin Gates has been charged with simple battery after footage surfaced of him delivering a forceful kick to a young female fan’s chest during a concert appearance in Florida, according to WTSP.

Gates kicked victim Miranda Dixon during his performance at Club Rumors after she tugged on the bottom of his shorts, footage shows. Lakeland Police Department viewed the footage and charged Gates Tuesday afternoon.

Miranda was hospitalized after getting kicked.

Miranda told ABC Action News the entire ordeal “scared” her and left her in pain.

“It still hurts, so I don’t want to keep touching it,” she said. “…I can’t believe it happened still.”

The victim’s mother, Kristy Irelan, spoke with WFLA about her daughter’s condition revealing she admitted herself to the hospital and had to undergo a CT scan after the incident.

Miranda “passed out” after getting kicked in the chest, the mother reveals.

“It pisses me off,” she told WFLA. “I don’t care who you are – an NFL player, just a regular person or a rapper – you don’t come to anybody’s hometown and kick anybody – she did not deserve that.”



Miranda says she forgives Gates, but is no longer a fan.

“I forgive him. I forgive everyone,” she told ABC Action News. “I just wish he never done it and I’m not a fan of him anymore.”



Kevin Gates has been known to get violent during concert performances, especially with female fans. He got into a brief scuffle with female fans during a concert performance at Z Club in Flint, MI.

The “Get Em” rapper shoved a fan before being separated by security.

Gates was still able to finish his performance.



Gates also punched a fan in September 2014 during a performance in Tennessee.
