Gervonta Davis domestic violence case DROPPED five months after the mother of his child retracted her allegations – but the boxer will take an anger management course
Five months ago Vanessa Posso, the mother of Davis’ daughter, publicly withdrew her allegations in a statement on Instagram.
TMZ quoted prosecutors saying that Davis will complete an anger management course and a parenting class.
Davis was arrested in December in Florida on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge after allegedly striking a woman with a ‘closed hand-type slap’ and leaving her with an abrasion on her lip, according to a Broward County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
A recording of the alleged victim’s 911 call was released by TMZ: ‘He’s going to kill me!… I need help, please! I’m trying to go home. I have my baby in the car, and he attacked me in front of the kid. And, now he’s messing up my tires!’

Later in December, Posso said on Instagram that Davis was not guilty of domestic violence.
‘These past days have been hurtful, and extremely exhausting for all parties involved,’ she wrote. ‘I pride myself on being extremely private; this situation was the last thing I wanted to be made public.
‘The state of our relationship has been in a fragile space and Gervonta and I were both at fault for the argument,’ she continued.
‘While the emotions were running high I made an unnecessary call to law enforcement at an intense moment while I was frantic. Gervonta did not harm me or our daughter.
‘Today, we have sought the help necessary to move forward with our lives. I am confident that we will succeed within our co-parenting dynamic with the counselling provided to us.’
Davis broke his silence in an Instagram post he later deleted to deny the accusation.
‘I NEVER PUT MY HANDS ON MY CHILD MOTHER NOR MY F***ING DAUGHTER ARE YOU F****** CRAZY!!’ Davis wrote. ‘I’M NOT A MONSTER.’
Davis included a photo of a young girl, presumably his daughter, watching the children’s film, Frozen.
‘I’ve been quiet for too long. I don’t have media team, PR, good lawyer…spokesman nothing off that… that’s the only reason I’m doing this now! Just to clear my name!’
