Last year, a woman named Layla Lace, born Laquenda Morris, accused Drizzy of sexual assault. However, while Drake admitted to engaging in sexual activities with her, he said that it was all consensual. The Canadian rapper then went on to accuse Morris of attempting to extort him out of money.

It is reported that the two parties negotiated to reach a settlement of $350,000.

Morris filed a complaint against her own lawyer and in those documents she detailed what allegedly happened with the rapper, “I, Laquana Morris signed a retainer agreement with Alexander Cabereiras on January 23, 2018. I explained to him that I was sexually assaulted by the rapper Drake.” Morris then went on to detail what Drake allegedly told her to do.

Drake’s attorney Larry Stein said in a statement, “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.”

There was no evidence to support her claims and sources have said that it wasn’t true. When she was told that no charges would be filed, she came for more money. That’s when Drake accused her of civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process. That lawsuit was later dropped and the two have gone their separate ways.
