Drake ain’t going back & forth with these IG models. He’s suing Layla Lace after she allegedly made false claims that she was pregnant – and raped – by the rapper. Deets inside…
Drake is upset! So, he’s filing lawsuits.
It’s being reported Drizzy pulled the trigger on a lawsuit against a woman who made up fake pregnancy claims and then spreading accusations of rape against him. He’s suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
In the lawsuit (filed by celeb lawyer Larry Stein), it’s said the OVO honcho and “IG model” Layla Lace – who def fits his type he loves to tell everyone is his type – met in Manchester, England during his Boy Meets World Tour last year. After a concert in February 2017, he said he had “consenual” sex with her in his hotel and that “Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex…”
Apparently, Layla wasn’t hip to what exactly was going down because it’s reported she got upset when he sent her home rather than keeping her around on the tour. Oop!
The “Nice For What” rapper claims Layla created a “fantasy relationship” with him in her head and once he stopped having the “time or energy to respond,” all hell broke loose.
That’s when she started doing interviews claiming she was pregnant with his baby. She was demanding money from Drizzy for the alleged unborn baby. After her alleged extortion tactics didn’t work, she went to the police to report the rapper had raped her in the hotel. She demanded more money to keep quiet about the rape, but that didn’t work either. Police interviewed Drake and he was cleared.
TMZ breaks down the deets:
In April 2017, she posted on Instagram and for the first time claimed she was pregnant, saying, “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!!!” According to the lawsuit, she then threatened to publicly leak messages from Drake. She made good on her threat and went on SiriusXM and announced Drake got her pregnant.
The suit goes on to allege in May 2017, Layla hired a lawyer and demanded money for her alleged baby and threatened him with defamation because TMZ posted a story saying Drake had never even met her.
The suit claims Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam … “There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall.”
According to the lawsuit, Layla switched tactics and went to authorities in New York and alleged Drake had raped her during their one-night stand. Drake says at that point Layla hired a new lawyer who demanded money or else they would make the rape complaint public.
According to the suit, the case was referred to Manchester police, who interviewed Drake and ultimately cleared him.
But, according to Drake … it wasn’t over. He says in the suit Layla then demanded millions of dollars in exchange for silence.
Drake is suing her for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
He’s asking for unspecified damages.
Here’s a clip from the interview she did claiming she was carrying Drizzy’s baby:
And here are the alleged text message receipts:
Lordt. Wouldn’t it be easier to just stop dealing with IG models/groupies and to be more selective about who gets the “D”… or is that too much to ask? We’re sure they’re some women out here about their own business who simply want the D and nothing else. Several women can do this smash & move life too, whether men are intimidated by it or not.
