Johanneburg - Drake is taking legal action against a woman, by the name of Layla Lace, made allegations of pregnancy and rape in an attempt to extort money from him, TMZ reports. 

In the lawsuit filed by the Toronto-born rapper he admits to having met Layla Lace during his Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester in England which is when they allegedly engaged in consensual sex at his hotel room in February 2017. 

“She also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex…” he added in the documents.

This lawsuit comes after the Instagram model allegedly mentally created what Drake identified as a ‘fantasy relationship’ and continuously inundated him with texts claiming that she missed him but when Drake retreated from the advances made by Layla this only infuriated her. 

According to reports, the Layla also shared in a lengthy Instagram post that she was expecting Drake’s child and shared a screenshot of texts she had exchanged with the rapper.

“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!!!” Layla wrote in the since-deleted post. 

At a later stage went on to announce while on a radio interview at SiriusXM that she was indeed expecting Drake’s child, which the God’s plan hit maker has denied after she failed to bring forward requested paternity tests. 

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

Drake who recently admitted to having a son in his latest album Scorpion, went on to add in the court documentation that Layla threatened to publicly expose him for allegedly raping her, if he didn’t pay her a ransom. 

The Toronto-born rapper is being represented by celebrity lawyer Larry Stein, following a series of events that unfolded in 2017 between himself and Layla – is filing for emotional distress, civil extortion, fraud and defamation in the lawsuit.
