Drake Sues Woman Over False Pregnancy and Rape Claim

Drake has filed a lawsuit against a woman who claimed he got her pregnant before accusing him of rape.

Drake singer claims that he met Layla Lace during his Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England, last February (17). Following the concert, he alleges that he and Layla had consensual sex in his hotel room.

However, it was when Drake sent Layla home after their encounter rather than taking her on tour with him that the issues allegedly began. In the lawsuit, filed by Drake’s lawyer Larry Stein and obtained by TMZ, the Canadian star submitted numerous text messages that Layla had sent him in the weeks after their evening together, which he says prove that she created a “fantasy relationship” with him.

Drake adds he didn’t have the “time or energy to respond”, and his silence led to Layla taking things to the next level.

She first claimed she was pregnant in April 2017, posting on Instagram: “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!!!”

After threatening to leak her messages from Drake, she then went on radio station SiriusXM and repeated her claims that she was pregnant with Drake’s baby. According to the lawsuit, Layla refused to take a paternity test and then both she and her lawyer failed to respond to any requests for information.

“There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall,” Drake says in the lawsuit.

It was at that point that Layla then went to the authorities in New York and accused Drake of raping her during their encounter in Manchester. She is said to have then hired a new legal team, and threatened to go public with the rape complaint unless he paid her.

The case was referred to police in Manchester who interviewed Drake and cleared him. However, the singer alleges that Layla then tried to extort him once again by asking for millions of dollars in return for her silence.

He is suing Layla for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process, and is asking for unspecified damages.
