Lovie says on New Year’s Day 2020, a video of her son, Darnell, went viral on the news where he is shown attacking his ex-girlfriend and dragging her back to his vehicle. Lovie says, “Alcohol makes Darnell very aggressive,” and claims if he hadn't been drinking that night, the incident would never have happened.
Darnell claims he doesn’t remember the incident because he was drunk at the time, and says he wants to apologize to the world for what he has done, but Brianna, the sister of the woman in the video, says Darnell needs to be held accountable for his crime.
