Drake Beats lawsuit filed by alleged home intruder – Billboard

Drake has won a court ruling ending a bizarre defamation lawsuit filed by a woman arrested in 2017 for breaking into the superstar’s home.

The lawsuit was filed this summer by Mesha Collins — the same woman Drake’s attorney says was charged with trespassing for breaking into his Los Angeles home in April 2017. She alleges that Drake then smeared her and invaded her privacy by disclosing personal information on Instagram.

In a response last month, the singer’s lawyers flatly denied the allegations and called the lawsuit – filed without an attorney and seeking an unjustified $4 billion – a “vanity case” based on “illusion Fragmentsher s imagination. “They said Collins was just trying to get in touch with Drake again.

On Friday, a Los Angeles Superior Court agreed to those arguments, dismissing the case permanently on the grounds that nothing Drake had posted could be remotely linked to Collins.

“Plaintiff Collins has not substantiated any of defendant Graham’s claims about Plaintiff Collins or that he used her identity, name, or likeness in her Instagram posts or endorsements. him,” Judge Virginia Keeny wrote, referring to Drake by his full name Aubrey Drake Graham. “Even though Plaintiff Collins was able to establish the claims were about her, she was unable to confirm that the claims were a private fact that would be offensive and objectionable to a reasonable person.”

The order was issued under California’s so-called anti-SLAPP law, a special state statute that allows judges to quickly dismiss questionable lawsuits that could cripple free speech. Judge Keeny said Drake has responded to requests to invoke the law, since the lawsuit seeks to sue him over his online statements.

The ruling comes less than a month after Drake’s attorney – Stanton “Larry” Stein of the law firm Russ August & Kabat – filed an objection to a lawsuit he called “baseless” and attempted a harassing his superstar client again.

“After breaking into her home and being arrested in 2017, plaintiff Mesha Collins currently trying to contact musician Aubrey Drake Graham by sue him,” Stein wrote in a November 18 application.This is pure fiction. Until he is served with this lawsuit, Graham doesn’t know who Collins is”.

The order was issued following an in-person hearing on Friday. According to court records, Collins did not attend the proceedings. Stein did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday. Collins could not be immediately reached for comment on Monday.
