Irate over something that transpired involving a boy, Sharkeisha viciously attacked Manuel, punching her in the eye and kicking her in the face. The video, which was taped for WorldStarHipHop, is continuing to rack up thousands of views online.
“I was in the grocery store, and the girl was checking out my groceries. The baggers were just laughing and talking about it. I said that’s my daughter in that video, and their whole expression changed,” Henderson told KHOU.
