Drake has won a legal battle against a woman who accused of him raping her and impregnating her. In 2017, Layla Lace came forward and began blasting Drake on social media alleging that he got her pregnant and stopped answering her calls. Lace also made a visit to a SiriusXM’s Shade 45 show saying she was 100 percent sure that the 6 God was the father of her unborn child and that after she told him about her pregnancy he stopped contacting her. Lace then went to the NYPD and alleged that Drake raped her. Lace’s lawyer contacted Drake after and alleged demanded money from him and if he didn’t pay up, they’d go public with the rape allegation.
The “In My Feelings” rapper didn’t back down and sued Lace for extortion, defamation and fraud in September of this year.
Drake never denied meeting Lace. He said he met her during the Manchester, England stop of his “Boy Meets World” tour and they had consensual sex. Drake claims that things went sour between them and then all these allegations began to pop up out of no where.
The two have now resolved this matter and Lace is prohibited from making any “statements alleging or insinuating that [Drake] assaulted her” and impregnated her nor can she get a third party to say it.
“The filing made by Drake against Layla Lace has been resolved, with Layla avoiding going to trial by agreeing to a stipulated judgment which prohibits her from repeating past statements she made against Drake,” lawyer Larry Stein said in a statement to TMZ. Drake and his team are satisfied with this outcome and while Drake appreciates the support he has received, he asks that his fans and the media allow both parties to move on with their lives.”
