A woman who tried to sue Drake for $4-billion (R63-billion) won’t be getting a cent from the rapper after a court dismissed her lawsuit.
The woman, identified as Mesha Collins, filed a lawsuit against the ‘Life is Good’ hitmaker for defamation.
Mesha made headlines in 2017 after she allegedly broke into Drake’s California mansion.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the woman locked herself in one of the home’s rooms and helped herself to some beverages.
Police arrested the woman. She later accused Drake of invading her privacy by using her name and likeness on social media in a defamatory way.
She filed a lawsuit in August 2021. Drake asked the court to dismiss the woman’s “frivolous” lawsuit. His lawyers say her claim that he “invaded her privacy by revealing to the world where she lived” is nothing but fiction.
Drake’s lawyers said her allegations are”delusional figments of her imagination”.
A judge dismissed Mesha’s lawsuit after she failed to prove that Drake mentioned her on social media.
Another woman attempts to break into Drake’s home
Earlier this year, another woman tried to gain access to one of Drake’s homes. Police arrested a knife-wielding woman outside of his Toronto mansion in March.
The woman allegedly struck a security guard with a metal pipe. She did not gain entry to the home.
Drake’s 50,000 square feet Toronto mansion is reportedly worth $100-million.
The mansion has an NBA-size indoor basketball court and a master bathtub made from 4,000 pounds of faceted black marble.
It also has a two-story closet!
Drake reportedly spends R65,000 a week to keep the home clean.
