Earlier this year, a woman accused Drake of sexual assault and impregnating her after a one night stand. After making those claims on SiriusXM, the Toronto rapper sued her for civil extortion, defamation, and fraud.
According to TMZ, Drake filed documents on Friday alerting the court that he and Layla Lace have resolved their legal battle. The documents state that Lace will not republish her Instagram post from April 2017 where she made the pregnancy claims. She wrote, “So I guess still in this era this is the new thing that after you tell a dude you pregnant they stop answering they phone!!!”
Lace is not allowed to make “statements alleging or insinuating that the rapper assaulted her,” got her pregnant or abandoned her.
Drake’s attorney Larry Stein made a statement about the resolution and the recent filings of the case. “The filing made by Drake against Layla Lace has been resolved, with Layla avoiding going to trial by agreeing to a stipulated judgment which prohibits her from repeating past statements she made against Drake. Drake and his team are satisfied with this outcome and while Drake appreciates the support he has received, he asks that his fans and the media allow both parties to move on with their lives.”
Everything will be resolved once the judge finally signs off on the documents.
