Drake has sued a woman who allegedly made false pregnancy and rape allegations against him in 2017 to extort money from him.
Drake is suing her for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
Drake is suing a woman who allegedly claims he got her pregnant in 2017, saying she planned the baby scam and made false rape allegations against him as well.
“Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex,” the lawsuit says of the pair’s initial contact with each other, but the lawsuit alleges that Lace took things much further in the following months.
He claimed that when he stopped responding to subsequent messages, she allegedly began threatening to leak their correspondence, publicly claimed he had impregnated her, accused him of rape, and demanded “millions of dollars” in exchange for silence.
Drake is reportedly suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process. Pitchfork has reached out to Drake’s representatives for comment.
Lace went to the police and said that the Canadian artist raped her. The lawsuit says that Drake was cleared by the Manchester police but Lace still demanded millions of dollars in exchange for her not going public with her charges.
The lawsuit contains a number of text messages Layla sent Drake in the following weeks, saying how much she missed him and so on. Drake says she created a “fantasy relationship” with him and, at a point, didn’t have the “time or energy to respond” and he says that set her off.
