“In the midst of her shouting, I immediately and calmly asked her to restrain her dog as it made a beeline for the baby and it was coming dangerously close to my child,” Allen, who is Black, wrote in a Facebook post with the video of the incident. “I actually crouched next to the baby and put my hand out to try to shoo this strange dog away.”According to NBC, Neely refused to collect her dog, apparently telling the family that “she can do whatever she wants.” Video shot by Allen shows her dragging some of the props used in the baby’s photoshoot to the grass.
“At this point, the lady stomps toward my baby and starts aggressively trying to remove the props placed around her, startling me,” she added in her post. “This did not deter her and she continued — my husband and the photographer quickly approached her to block her from doing this, and at this point, I started to shout at the lady about her aggression upsetting my child.”Isaiah Allen, Kelyn’s husband, also took some footage from the incident. At one point, Neely appears to strike out at him, jostling the camera. Isaiah Allen was the one who filed a complaint with the police, accusing the woman of physically assaulting him, and verbally harassing his family. Once the socialite’s behavior went viral, she issued an apology in a statement, although she thought to offer “context” claiming that the family was not “respectful,” and adding that “It’s hard to remain composed when confronted by shouted threats of lawsuits and false, inflammatory accusations.” On Saturday, however, she reiterated her apology in what was apparently supposed to be a more sincere manner, asking Houston to “come together and heal.” “A week ago I let my emotions overtake my better self, and I apologize from the bottom of my heart,” Neely said in a YouTube video. “I love Houston and ask that we come together to heal, and I extend my hand in friendship.”
