Drake is scheduled to appear in court next month for an assault trial. Noel Fisher is suing the Canadian rapper and his bodyguard Chubbs over an alleged 2014 assault at the Drizzy’s L.A. mansion. He claimed in the summer of 2014, Drake reached out to him to invite him over, claiming the rapper said he wanted to talk about the two working together again.
The producer says he showed up at Drake’s home and immediately ran into Chubbs, who he claims punched him in the face and allegedly broke his jaw. The alleged injuries were so brutal, the producer says he was hospitalized for days and had to undergo several surgeries. He said he asked Drake to cover his medical bills, but Drake refused. He filed the lawsuit seeking unspecified damages.
However Drake fired back saying his bodyguard only acted in self-defense and denied all allegations of wrongdoing. The rapper and his bodyguard demanded the entire suit be thrown out.
The rapper says due to his fame, his life serves as fodder for various blogs, websites and social media posts. He believes if the stories and posts are presented to the jury, it could lead to the risk of prejudice.
