Drake settles out of court with rape accuser
Layla Lace was originally sued for allegedly making false pregnancy and rape claims, and attempting to extort the artist for “millions of dollars”
Documents filed by Drake yesterday, November 30 has alerted the court that he and Lace have resolved their legal battle. According to the documents which was obtained by TMZ, Lace agreed she will not republish her April 17, 2017 Instagram post where she first made the pregnancy claim.
She had written,
“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 a SiriusXM show in 2017 to blast Drake. Later she went to authorities in NY to allege Drake raped her during a one-night stand. Drake says her lawyer then demanded money or they would go public with the rape allegation.
All these have been swept under the carpet so long as Lace sticks to the deal, which requires she make no “statements alleging or insinuating that [Drake] assaulted her,” got her pregnant and abandoned her or say anything else disparaging about him.
She also can’t use any third party to do any of the above.
Drake’s lawyer, Larry Stein told TMZ,
“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. 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”.
