Drake is in a pickle after one of his bodyguards allegedly punched a man in the face at the popular West Hollywood nightclub, Delilah. According to reports, a clubgoer filed a battery report on Tuesday, Nov. 29, with the L.A. County Sheriff claiming he was assaulted by Drake’s team after he refused to vacate a bathroom.
Law enforcement sources said the reveler was at the club on Nov. 5 when security attempted to clear the restroom because the “Hotline Bling” rapper, 29, wanted to use it in private (of course). During that time, the man claims he was sucker-punched in the face and without warning. So, he’s looking for a little justice.
Oddly enough, it appears that the alleged victim is unsure about who hit him, telling police he only “thinks” it was one of Drizzy’s bodyguards who clocked him at the West Hollywood supper club. In the meantime, cops are investigating, but Drake is fortunately not a suspect.
Of course, this isn’t the first time the Toronto native has been entangled in some drama due to his team. In case you missed it, Hip hop producer Detail sued Rihanna’s on-and-off-again ex in June after his bodyguard, Chubbs, allegedly punched him for turning down a job offer during a 2014 incident. Meanwhile, it’s unclear whether Chubbs was involved in last month’s incident.
Earlier this week, Drake made headlines after the release of J. Cole’s new album, 4 Your Eyez Only, in which the rapper appeared to be taking shots at both the Champagne Papi and Kanye West. “Ego in charge of every move, he’s a star/ And we can’t look away due to the days when he caught our hearts/He’s falling apart but we deny it/Justifying the half-[expletive] [expletive] he drop, we always buy it,” he raps; referencing what some listeners believe to be West, who cancelled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour after checking into a hospital for mental health issues.
Next, Cole took aim at rappers who use ghostwriters, rapping “hear some new style bubbling up then they bite that [expletive.” As you may recall, Meek Mill recently accused Drake of using ghostwriters and D.R.A.M called him out for stealing his song “Cha Cha” to make “Hotline Bling.” So, it’s only natural that fans would begin to connect the dots.
