Drake just filed a lawsuit against a woman who allegedly made pregnancy claims last year and attempted to extort him! According to TMZ, he’s suing a woman named Layla Lace, who he says he met during his Boy Meets World Tour in England, but things went left real quick.
According to the suit, Drizzy says she made up a “fantasy relationship” and when he didn’t have the “time or energy to respond” to her text messages, she took things to another level by claiming he got her pregnant.
In an April 2017 Instagram post, she reportedly wrote: “So I guess still in this era this is the new thing that after you tell a dude you pregnant they stop answering they phone!!!” She also went on SiriusXM radio to share her story and hired a lawyer around May 2017 to demand money from the rapper for their “child.”
The suit claims they had consensual sex in his hotel room and she kept texting him afterwards saying how much she missed him. It also alleges that Layla got mad when Drake decided not to take her on tour with him and sent her home.
“There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall,” the suit says, which was filed by celebrity lawyer Larry Stein. TMZ reports that it goes on to say that Layla refused to take a paternity test and even went to the authorities in New York to claim their one night stand was actually forced and threatened to make the rape complaint public.
Drake was cleared in the case and is now asking for unspecified damages. He’s reportedly suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
