An unidentified woman has a legal bone to pick with Drake and Future following an alleged sexual assault that took place during one of their Summer Sixteen Tour pit stops in August 2016, according to The Tennessean.
Even though Drizzy and Fewtch aren’t named in the actual sexual assault, however, she’s pinning $25 million on them for their connection to Leavy Johnson, the 38-year-old man who reportedly was employed by them and the venue.
As reported by The Tennessean, the 28-year-old woman recounted that Johnson approached her as she was trying to get backstage at the Bridgestone Arena to meet the What a Time to Be Alive artists. She claims that he told her that he was a worker for the arena and would be able to assist her. After she followed him, The Tennessean reports of her testimony, he violently attacked her by pushing her on to the ground and raping her. Johnson has since been arrested and charged with rape as his arraignment is pending, the site adds.
TMZ points out that Johnson had previously racked up outstanding assault warrants as well. As far as where Drizzy and Fewtch’s names come in on the alleged attack, the woman claims that the venue and both rap artists should have been more privy to the risks associated with hiring him for the concert. Now she’s requesting $25 million for what she believes to be negligence on their behalf, which ultimately led to the alleged assault.
