HipHollywood can confirm that Kevin Jerome Gilyard aka Kevin Gates has been charged with simple battery after kicking fan, Miranda Dixon, in the “stomach/chest area” during his show at Rumors Nightclub in Lakeland, Florida.

In a video that was posted on WorldstarHipHop last week, Gates can be seen striking Dixon with his foot after she tried to touch the rapper’s pant leg while he was performing. “The kick was with such force that it pushed Dixon back into the crowd and caused her to lose consciousness for a brief period of time,” the police department tells HipHollywood.

According to a statement by Lakeland PD, “Gilyard’s action of kicking Dixon in the stomach was not as a result of self-defense and did rise to the level of a criminal offense.”

The incident, which took place on August 28, was captured by cellphone video and the venue’s surveillance cameras and will be used for further investigation.

We are told that the complaint affidavit for simple battery has been forwarded to the State Attorney’s Office and they will decide on how to proceed.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
