But footage of a woman thought to be the 24-year-old recklessly driving a McLaren sports car last June has surfaced as Kimiai prepares to surrender to police.
“This s*** is getting too colossal” and “ripping this ho” the woman says in shocking behind-the-wheel footage as the vehicle reached frightening speeds on a highway.
“My ponytail came out, oh my God!” she remarked in the clip obtained by TMZ on Friday. “What the f***.”
The disturbing video came to light after Kimiai was seen on video entering Khadka’s car with King and another masked pal.

When the Uber driver asked her to put on a mask and she refused, so he asked them to leave the car after driving them to a gas station where they could buy masks.
However, she began hurling insults at Khadka before assaulting him, pulling down his mask and coughing in his face, saying they had Covid-19.
Kimiai then tried to steal his phone before King allegedly pepper sprayed her inside his car.
On Thursday, Las Vegas cops said King was taken into custody on charges of assault with a caustic chemical, assault and battery, conspiracy and violation of health and safety code.
Now, according to local media reports, Kimiai’s lawyer has said she will turn herself in to the San Francisco Police Department to face similar charges.

Instead of apologizing, Kimali said she would have done much more damage to Khadka, adding that her boyfriend taught her not to let an Uber driver drop her off in the middle of the road.
“All I did take his mask off and cough a little bit but I don’t even have corona,” she said. “I ain’t gonna lie, that was disrespectful as f**k. I was dead a** wrong for that.”
“F**king stupid a** Uber bruh, that’s why I take Lyft,” she said – but Lyft has preemptively banned her from their service as well.
“Although this incident did not involve the Lyft platform, the unacceptable treatment of the driver in this video compelled us to permanently remove the rider from the Lyft community,” the company said in a statement.
“Driving in a pandemic is not easy. Please wear a mask, respect one another, and be a good person.”

Khadka told KPIX he believes that he was subjected to such shocking harassment and racial slurs because he is a South Asian immigrant.
“I never said anything bad to them, I never cursed, I was not raised that way,” he said. “I don’t hit people, I am not raised that way, so they were not getting out of my car.
“You guys are animals to treat other human beings like this.”
Police said one of the women then sprayed a substance likely to be pepper spray into his face and car before exiting, but he managed to retrieve his cell before they left.

“She pepper-sprayed inside my car, from the passenger window that was open little bit, that was the only window open in my car,” Khadka said.
The driver recalled how he was then forced to leave his car because it was difficult to breathe.
After immigrating to the United States from Nepal over eight years ago, Khadka said he has been supporting his family through Uber and was targeted because of his race.
“If I was another complexion, I would have not gotten that treatment from them,” he said. “The moment I opened my mouth to speak, they realized I’m among one of them, so it’s easy for them to intimidate me.”
“Since you were born and raised here in the United States, don’t think the other person is less human,” he concluded.
Khadka was given $120 from Uber in cleaning funds, but has said that’s still not enough; a GoFundMe has raised $10,000 to help him.
Uber confirmed the woman has been banned from its app, noting: “The behavior seen in the video is appalling. The rider no longer has access to Uber.”
