Drizzy’s lawyers say their client is innocent and they say they have the facts to prove it!
So last year Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima and a nightclub employee got into a physical altercation while exiting the club. Bendijima is seen on video repeatedly punching the man in the face and head while Drake and good friend Odell Beckham, stand back and watch accompanied by their entourages.
Drizz and Beckham were both included in the lawsuit filed by Bennett McBride Sipes, because he claims a bodyguard hired by the men jumped into the fight. Now Drake’s team say they’ve rewatch the surveillance footage and say that Mr. Sipes is actually misinformed about the ins and outs of the attack. The lawyers representing Drake say that in actuality, the bodyguard in question wasn’t even remotely involved.
The released a statement saying “First and foremost, there can be no legitimate dispute that my client was not involved in the alleged ‘attack’ that is the subject of Plaintiff’s Complaint. Indeed, the security video footage and screenshots from said video, which are incorporated into the complaint, unequivocally show that neither my client nor any member of his security team ever came into physical contact with Mr. Sipes.”
They continue to maintain Drake’s innocence and furthermore say Sipes’ claims are unfounded, because the bodyguards were hired to protecting the group of men but only under extreme measures, were they to insert themselves into a situation. Watch the full surveillance clip below:
