Why Drake and Future are being sued for 25m

Share

According to TMZ, the woman attended the Summer 16 Tour stop in Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on August 14, and claims she was invited backstage to meet the rappers by a venue employee.

The 28-year-old unnamed woman (simply identified as Jane Doe) attended the Drake/Future concert on August 14, 2016, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, US.

But on the way to the backstage area, the man - who police had identified as Leavy Johnson - apparently violently attacked and raped her. Johnson has since been arrested by the police, and there's enough evidence there that cops have charged him with rape. Johnson was ultimately arrested and now awaits trial, according to The Tennessean. Johnson had outstanding warrants for assault at the time of the alleged rape, per E! In addition, she argues that the defendants had a duty to ensure that their employees, agents and independent contractors did not harm concert attendees. She says Drake, Future, the arena and multiple others should have known that employing Johnson had the potential to cause a risky situation for others.

With Guam's safety in the balance, Trump assured the territory's Governor Eddie Calvo: "We are with you 1000%, you are safe". He then reassured Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the USA military is "rock solid".

So due to their poor decisions, the woman is seeking no less than $25 million in damages, plus court costs.

Drizzy and the Freebandz emcee had one of the biggest tours previous year, their joint Summer Sixteen tour of North America.

Meanwhile, neither Drake, Future, or the companies involved have publicly commented on the lawsuit.
