Drake Is Suing a Former Hookup Who Claimed He Raped, Impregnated Her

He may have quashed his beef with Meek Mill, but Drake is now in another battle with a woman who once claimed that he’d gotten her pregnant.

Drake says that, in addition to this baby scam, this woman made false rape allegations against him and demanded that he buy her silence.

He is suing her for extortion and for defamation.

According to court documents filed by Drake’s team and obtained by TMZ, Drake met Layla Lace at one of his concerts in early 2017.

Specifically, he met the curvaceous Instagram model while he was on his Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England.

In February of 2017, Drake says that he and Layla had a consensual hookup.

The sexual activity is said to have taken place in his hotel room.

According to Drake’s team, “Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex.”

Drake’s attorney, celebrity lawyer Larry Stein, says that Layla was fine with the hookup — but enraged when Drake left it at that.

Apparently, she had been hoping that Drake would take her on tour with him, and did not take it well when he did not.

Though Drake and Layla continued to text, evidence contained within the lawsuit shows that Layla was more demanding of Drake’s attention.

Documents claim that Layla began to imagine a relationship beyond a hookup and flirtatious texts — that she came to believe that the two of them were dating.

That, the lawsuit says, was a factor when she claimed in April of 2017 that Drake had gotten her pregnant and then ghosted her.

Things got worse from there.

Drake’s team alleges that, when Layla was unable to get anything out of him or produce any evidence of an actual pregnancy or child, she changed tactics.

It was then that Layla allegedly accused Drake of rape — which was investigated by police and then cleared.

While police failing to find evidence of sexual assault is not the same thing as proving that it never happened, Drake’s team has that text messaging history.

With those text messages as evidence demonstrating Layla’s desperation to see him, they hope to prove defamation.

Sexual assault allegations should always be taken seriously, in part because the number of false reports are dwarfed by real ones, which are in turn dwarfed by the number of survivors who never come forward.

But that does not mean that there are never false reports. While it’s rare for a jilted ex to go to such extremes, it sounds like Layla was not even an ex.

Based upon these documents, it sounds like Layla was a hookup with whom Drake later flirted in text messages before they became too much.

Unless there is more to this story that we’re not seeing, it sounds like she may have become a stalker.

Not all stalkers are deranged fans. Some stalkers imagine an elaborate relationship with a celebrity, and then become enraged when the celebrity does not share their delusion.

Drake says that, when the sexual assault claim fell through, she tried to demand money to keep her from going public.

That said, so far, we have not heard Layla’s team’s side of the story.

We know that Drake fathered one secret love child in the past. Let’s not pretend that he isn’t capable of being shady.

But if she really did try to extort money and make false claims about Drake in the process, he may have a very solid case for defamation and extortion.

We’ll be sure to keep an eye on this case as it develops.

Jon Gosselin: Kate is Suing Me Because the Kids Love Me More!!

Kate Gosselin is currently taking Jon to court to sue him for … many times more money than he actually has.

Newly obtained court documents don’t fully explain why Kate is demanding every cent of Jon’s money.

But one thing is very clear: Jon Gosselin is pissed. And he’s fighting back.

In case you were wondering if Jon and Kate Gosselin still hate each other … wonder no more.

Kate is hauling Jon into court, suing him for $ 132,875.

Between the very specific amount and their history together, many suspect that she is asserting that he owes her child support money.

(Remember, folks, that Kate is the one with the reality series while Jon has sometimes seemed to struggle to find work, his celebrity being more of a burden than a help in most situations)

All that we really know is that Kate claims that he breached an alleged agreement.

Now, RadarOnline reports that Jon is fighting back against Kate’s lawsuit.

Thanks to some court documents that they obtained, they know what he’s arguing.

Within the filing, Jon’s attorney says that Kate’s six-figure demand is “an inappropriate amount.”

The papers also call into question Kate’s assertion that Jon owes her anything.

His attorney notes that Kate’s lawsuit does “not provide any proof of the language of that agreement.”

You know how you can’t sue someone for breach of contract without an actual contract?

Always keep documentation, folks.

Within his response, Jon shares that he suspects that Kate is seeking “child support arrears.”

This sort of back-payment would, he says, be due if he “filed a petition to modify custody.”

Of course, while much is still unclear, none of the documents specify that the couple has made any changes whatsoever to their child custody agreement.

(Sure, many fans would love to see a change in that, but while wishes are nice and all, it takes court filings to amend a custody arrangement)

Jon’s attorney is asking the judge to strike Kate’s six-figure demand all the way down to zero dollars and zero cents.

The argument is that the money requested, which is more than Jon has, also “prejudices the welfare and is against the best interest of the minor children.”

Some wonder — though, with limited information, it is difficult to be sure of the exact timing of anything — if perhaps Kate is suing Jon as a way of lashing out over how much time he’s been spending with daughter Hannah.

Hannah has been visibly spending time with her father for weeks. Many fans believe that they are now living together.

Even commenters on Kate’s own Instagram are celebrating this, writing things like:

“So happy for jon and hannah….she looks really happy…finally shes out of that prison..jon worked long and hard to rescue her from that witch…i thought you being in charge was never gonna change kate….oh brother has it changed.”

Commenters on Jon’s Instagram seem much more positive about the apparently changed arrangement.

“Hannah and Jon look great. I always loved her personality and Jon you did a great job as well.”

Of course, some couldn’t help but shade Kate in the process.

“Yes…Jon is the one we liked and respected. No comment on the other.”

So … is Kate’s lawsuit backlash for Jon spending time with Hannah (and even some time with Collin!)?

Or is it less emotional than that. Is Kate trying to get payments that she genuinely believes that Jon owes her now he is (at least for now) seemingly Hannah’s primary caregiver?

We have to acknowledge that it may be neither — some huge coincidence.

As this lawsuit continues to play out in court, we will hopefully all know more.

One thing’s for sure — we don’t think that Kate is going to get what she wants. Jon can’t pay her what he doesn’t have.
