TMZ reports that the lawsuit lays out a “fantasy relationship” constructed by Lace and includes texts allegedly sent between Lace and Drake. Lace went on Instagram shortly after the supposed exchanges and claimed that she was pregnant.

In April 2017, she posted on Instagram and for the first time claimed she was pregnant, saying:

“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!!!”

According to the lawsuit, Lace lawyered up and asked that Drake pay her for the baby. When that didn’t fly, Drake claims Lace went to the police and said that he raped her. The lawsuit says that Drake was cleared by the Manchester police but Lace still demanded millions of dollars in exchange for her not going public with her charges.

It appears that the rapper has had enough and is now suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, abuse of process, and defamation.

While it wouldn’t be the first time that Drake was accused of hiding a child, the lawsuit says that “there is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby”, noting that a child would have been born in the fall.
