Drake And Future's Rape Lawsuit Just Took A Major Turn

Drizzy fans and FutureHive, you'll want to check this out.

Published March 1, 2018

Hip-hop superstars Future and Drake finished up the last few months of their joint Summer Sixteen Tour in August 2016 where thousands of fans vibed out to their collaborative What A Time To Be Alive album.

While it certainly was a time to be alive for the pair, things took a turn for the worse when a woman pinned a $25 million lawsuit on them for their connection to a man who she says raped her during their Bridgestone Arena appearance. But according to The Blast, a huge development from the case has turned things back on the right track for Drizzy and Fewtch.  

The site reports that the latest court documents show that a Tennessee judge has dismissed both artists from the case without prejudice. Other defendants tied to the lawsuit haven’t been so fortunate, however.

The unnamed accuser initially began the lawsuit against the men for what she considered negligence on their behalf. The accused, Leavy Johnson, reportedly had racked up a pile of outstanding warrants for assault amid the alleged rape, and the woman claimed that Future, Drake, Bridgestone Arena and the touring companies were all responsible for employing him knowing he could “pose an unreasonable risk to others.”

Neither of the artists have publicly spoken about the lawsuit since its onset. It likely will stay that way now that their names have been cleared from the case.

2018 is shaping up pretty well for the Champagne Papi, wouldn’t you say?
