Rap superstar Drake has filed a lawsuit against a woman who allegedly made false accusations against him after they had consensual sex.
The Canadian-American rapper met the woman, Layla Lace, after a concert in the UK in February 2017, when the lawsuit claims she “voluntarily and seemingly happily” performed oral sex on him.
Drake said after sending her home, which, according to the lawsuit, she did not like, the woman created a “fantasy relationship” with him, and supplied text messages that he claims support this, TMZ writes.
Lace then announced she was pregnant on Instagram in April of 2017, and even made an appearance on Sirius XM Radio to discuss the alleged pregnancy.
According to Drake, she then hired a lawyer in May and started demanding money from the rapper, but after allegedly refusing to take a paternity test, she ceased contact.
The suit then claims that Lace went to authorities in New York to accuse Drake of raping her, and that the case was referred to authorities in the UK who interviewed and ultimately cleared him.
And after she hired a new lawyer who demanded money from the rapper in exchange for silence, Drake has now sued her for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, abuse of process, and is also asking for unspecified damages.
