No new friends? Drake may actually want to let a good lawyer in the winner’s circle, because he is being slapped with his second lawsuit in just a matter of weeks.
First, Drake’s former stylist, Raphael, sued the Toronto-bred rapper for failure to pay for his services, now the man who apparently also served as Drake’s jeweler is coming for that Young Money…again. According to reports by TMZ, a famous jeweler is suing him over a $50,000 owl pendant and is claiming Drake illegally made knockoffs of it for his friends.
The jeweler Baden Baden Inc. (owned by designer Michael Raphael) filed the lawsuit, claiming Drizzy hired the company to make a custom diamond-studded platinum owl pendant back in January … and paid $49,204.
Then in June … BB claims gold duplicates of the pendant started surfacing on Drake’s Instagram.
According to the lawsuit, BB claims Drake took its original design, copied it, and handed out the knockoffs to his pals.
Baden Baden is suing for copyright infringement, demanding unspecified damages, and asking the court to force Drake to hand over the owl copies.
Michael Raphael was on his grind, and now he is coming for his residuals any way he can get it. Read about the styling melee between the two here.
