Published Aug 14, 2017Drake and Future have been named in a $25 million USD lawsuit by a woman who claims she was raped at the Nashville date of their "Summer Sixteen Tour" last year.
As TMZ reports, the unnamed 28-year-old woman attended a performance at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on August 14, 2016, and claims she was promised by a venue employee that she would be able to meet the rappers backstage. The woman said the employee then forced himself onto her after she agreed to follow him.
The employee, identified as 38-year-old Leavy Johnson, has been arrested and charged with rape and is awaiting trial, the Tennessean reports. TMZ notes that Johnson had outstanding warrants for assault at the time of the attack.
The woman's suit alleges that Drake, Future and Bridgestone Arena should have recognized the risk of employing Johnson.
The rappers have yet to respond to the lawsuit publicly.
