It looks like Drake isn't playing games when it comes to fake rap allegations! TMZ is reporting that Drake is suing a woman who claimed she was raped by Drake and then became pregnant. The lawsuit claims the woman created these false allegations and then tried to extort Drake for money to keep quiet.

Drake claims he met Layla Lace last year during his Tour in Manchester, England. He says after one of his shows in February 2017, they had a one night stand. Drake says they had consensual sex and "Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex..."

In the lawsuit, filed by celeb lawyer Larry Stein, Drake says Layla went ballistic when he sent her home rather than taking her on tour with him. Drake even has text messages to prove it!!


Drake then claims she communicated with him and created a "fantasy relationship" with Drake. Yet when Drake did not reply, in April she began claiming she was pregnant by Drake. This story gets messier when the woman starts publicly claiming she is pregnant by Drake during an interview on Shade 45.


The suit goes on to allege in May 2017, Layla hired a lawyer and demanded money for her alleged baby and threatened him with defamation because TMZ posted a story saying Drake had never even met her.

The suit claims Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam ... "There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall."

According to the lawsuit, Layla switched tactics and went to authorities in New York and alleged Drake had raped her during their one-night stand. Drake says at that point Layla hired a new lawyer who demanded money or else they would make the rape complaint public.

According to the suit, the case was referred to Manchester police, who interviewed Drake and ultimately cleared him.

But, according to Drake ... it wasn't over. He says in the suit Layla then demanded millions of dollars in exchange for silence. 

Drake is suing her for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
