Victim In Webbie Assault Releases Statement, Says Reports Are Exaggerated

New details emerge in the recent case of Webbie allegedly kicking a woman down a flight of stairs.

News broke yesterday that rapper Webbie had been arrested on charges of assault and robbery after the Louisiana emcee reportedly kicked a woman down a flight of stairs and took her money. Now, in a recent statement from the victim, new details emerge in the case that paint a different picture.

Speaking through her lawyer, it turns out that the woman had been involved in an 18-month relationship with Webbie. She indicated that the reports of the assault were greatly exaggerated by the media and has no plans on pursuing any such charges in a legal setting. Furthermore, she added that Webbie did not rob her, but had attempted to non-maliciously withhold funds he had given her to travel out of the state.

Check out the full statement below.

Atlanta, GA- Contrary to recent media reports and what can only be described as an exaggeration of 
actual events, “Webbie” (Webster Gradney, Jr.) did not “brutally” attack my client and, fortunately,
my client did not suffer injury requiring medical attention. 
The “robbery” was unfortunately a non-malicious attempt, by the accused, to deny the woman 
resources he had given her to leave the city, via air transportation, following their domestic 
argument. The accused did not “meet” my client at a party but rather they had been residing together, 
off and on, for more than 18 months. Though a rocky relationship, my client and Mr. Gradney spent 
the evening together after being separated briefly. The early morning assault is domestic related and 
should be treated as such.  
While neither my client nor I condone acts of violence, especially domestic, we will not conspire 
with the media or officials to paint an inaccurate picture of Mr. Gradney or the events. We will not 
conspire with anyone to deliberately destroy Mr. Gradney’s reputation, life and/or career. Neither my 
client nor this case should be used as a tool to send another “black rapper” to prison for any other 
case or charge that is unrelated to these events.
Both parties want nothing more than to move beyond this matter. It’s an unfortunate situation and my
client will, however, cooperate with officials as required by law.
