Drake is suing a woman over false pregnancy and rape allegations, TMZ reports. The plaintiff states Layla Lace met Drake at the Manchester stop of his Boy Meets World tour. Later that spring, Lace made a number of very public allegations about their relationship, including that she was pregnant with his child, on SiriusXM. Drake responded at the time by claiming he never met Lace, to which she filed a defamation lawsuit.

Drake's lawsuit, filed by lawyer Larry Stein, claims "there is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby." It also says that Lace threatened to go public with allegations of rape unless Drake handed over "millions." He is suing for fraud, defamation, civil extortion, emotional distress, and abuse of process.
