The anticipation for Coachella 2024 is palpable, with Doja Cat headlining alongside Tyler, The Creator, and Lana Del Rey. However, the excitement surrounding this announcement is juxtaposed against a backdrop of family turmoil for the chart-topping artist.
Recent developments reveal that Doja Cat’s brother, Raman Dalithando Dlamini, has been served with a restraining order following allegations of assault by their mother, Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer. The legal proceedings cast a shadow on what should be a celebratory moment for the rapper.
Sawyer’s court filings describe a disturbing pattern of violence and verbal abuse, alleging that Raman not only assaulted her but also his sister, Doja Cat. Despite temporary orders being granted, Doja Cat has yet to file her own complaint for additional protection.
In an interview with The Shade Room, Raman refuted the assault allegations, claiming he hasn’t seen anyone in years and denying the existence of a restraining order against him.
As the legal saga unfolds, the juxtaposition of Doja Cat’s rising career and the personal challenges she faces highlights the complexities of fame. The Coachella stage awaits her in April, but the shadows of family discord linger in the background, leaving fans curious about the artist behind the music.
