Louisiana rapper Kevin Gates‘ wife is standing by his side following a headline-generating jail sentencing this week. Dreka Gates has come forward to speak out on the hip-hop star receiving 180 days behind bars.
In a new Instagram post, Mrs. Gates rips her husband’s victim and promises the legal proceeding is far from over.
You mean to tell me that @iamkevingates kicked the girl in the red jumpsuit and knocked the breathe out her? Because that's what she's been claiming and testified today in court. If anything her friend choked the fuck out of her. She claims she fainted, but yet she and her friend stayed at the club at the front of the stage even after this incident. She also acquired a civil attorney early on…what does that tell you? She also touched him FIRST (more than once) without his consent but yet he was the one sentenced to jail today for the same crime. She and her friend also had very conflicting stories and were tripped up in many lies today in the courtroom. It was comical and sad at the same time to see how desperate people are for fame and money. Not to mention the prosecutors wanted to give him 60 days with anger management and community service but yet the judge decided to give him 180 days?!? Are you fucking kidding me. Inshallah justice will be served. #unjust #fuckery #polkcounty #smfh by the way, thanks for taking my husband away from our kids (sarcasm) #itsnotoverjustyet
Yesterday (October 26), buzz developed about Gates’ 180-day jail sentencing.
Rapper Kevin Gates was sentenced to 180 days in a Polk County jail after being found guilty of kicking a fan at a concert last year in Lakeland. The judge also ordered a one year probation after Gates’ jail time. The sentence was three times what prosecutors requested. (Fox 13 News)
Back in April, Gates filed paperwork to have his now-infamous August 2015 case tossed.
Gates says Miranda Dixon tried to grab him twice during the show last August in Lakeland, FL — and since he gave her a verbal warning after her first failed attempt … he had every right to fight back. In the docs, he says Dixon managed to grab his shorts the second time, and he thought she was trying to pull him offstage … so he used necessary force to defend himself and prevent further harm.

In September 2015, Gates spoke out on attacking the female fan.
“I’m not saying he was right in retaliating the way he did but at the same time, how many times can you keep asking someone to stop touching you before you defend yourself,” said Ryan Sayers. “I feel like she was disrespecting him because he asked her multiple times to stop and she didn’t.” said Danielle Vitale.
