Canadian rapper Drake has filed a lawsuit against a woman whom he said made a false rape allegation against him and also lied that she was pregnant for him.
Drake is suing the woman, Layla Lace, for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
TMZ reports that the rapper in the lawsuit said he met her during his 2017 Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, UK.
According to Drake, they had sex in his hotel room, noting that “Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex”.
Then two months after their fling, Layla announced on the radio that she was pregnant for Drake.
The rapper said that Layla created a “fantasy relationship” with him after their encounter and that she got very upset when he refused to take her on tour.
Drake said that she also threatened to leak their private messages to the public, demanding money for her alleged baby through her lawyer.
According to Drake despite her allegations she refused to take a paternity test. The rapper said that:
“There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last fall”.
Layla’s last move, the lawsuit said, was to file a police report that Drake raped her, saying she did not have consensual sex with him.
Drake said she then hired another lawyer to seek a million-dollar settlement to avoid making the rape complaint public.
According to the lawsuit, that was the horse that broke the camel’s back.
