Who Is Layla Lace? New Details About The Instagram Model Who Claims Drake Raped And Impregnated Her

Jaws dropped in May 2018 when Pusha T’s “The Story of Adidon” apparently revealed information about Drake’s son, Adonis, with adult actress Sophie Brussaux. Now, Drake is facing new paternity claims from Instagram model, who is Layla Lace. The woman has also claimed the rapper raped her.

If Drake’s history with Brussaux is any indication, if Lace was pregnant with Drake’s child, the rapper would own up to it. Despite keeping his son hidden from the public eye — as he raps on his song “Emotionless,” “I wasn’t hiding my child from the world / I was hiding the world from my child” — it’s been reported that Drake kept up with child support.

This time, however, the artist isn’t offering any child support, and instead filed a lawsuit against Lace.

1. Drake met Lace while on tour

According to TMZ, in a new lawsuit the rapper claims that he and Lace met in February 2017 during his Boy Meets World tour. The lawsuit alleges that Drake and Lace had a consensual hookup after one of Drake’s shows.

According to Drake’s lawsuit, Lace became agitated when the rapper didn’t take her on tour with him.

2. Lace claimed she was pregnant with Drake’s baby in April 2017

In April 2017, Lace posted a long caption on her since-deleted Instagram page alleging Drake got her pregnant. “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,” she wrote, tagging Drake’s Instagram handle in the post.

Lace took things further when she accused Drake of getting her pregnant on a radio appearance. When asked how confident she was, in face, pregnant by Drake as opposed to someone else, Lace replied, “I know who I sleep with unprotected, period. So it’s 100 percent sure.”

However, later that month the Shade Room posted a photo on Instagram that seemed to reveal Lace calling her own pregnancy claims “fake” — and Drake even liked the photo.

3. Drake initially claimed he never met her

When Lace’s claims first surfaced in 2017, Drake claimed he never met her. Sources reportedly told TMZ that the rapper believed Lace’s claims were so outrageous that he didn’t even bother responding to them. Of course, his new lawsuit reveals otherwise.

4. Lace sued Drake in May 2017

According to TMZ, Lace hired a lawyer to sue Drake for child support. She also added defamation to her case after Drake said that he never met her, and went even further by claiming the rapper raped her during their night together.

Drake’s suit claims that the rape report was transferred to the Manchester, England police where the alleged rape took place. According to the rapper’s lawsuit, the two had consensual sex and she “voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex.” Police in Manchester reportedly cleared him of any crime.

5. Drake has sued Lace

While Drake initially let Lace’s accusations go, he’s now filed a lawsuit against the model for “civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process,” according to TMZ. His suit claims that Lace wanted “millions of dollars in exchange for silence.”

Unfortunately, huge stars often find themselves denying pregnancy claims. It’s happened to Justin Bieber, Offset, and Jay-Z, just to name a few.
