Drake is suing a woman he alleges faked claims of pregnancy and rape, and demanded "millions of dollars" for his silence, TMZ reports.

According to the report, Drake and Layla Lace met during 2017's 'Boy Meets World' tour in Manchester, UK. According to the suit, which TMZ has obtained, they had consensual sex and continued to text afterward. In April 2017, after Drake stopped responding to Lace's messages, she went public with her pregnancy claim via Instagram and an interview on SiriusXM, and threatened to release their correspondence.

According to the suit, Lace hired a lawyer in May 2017, demanding money for the baby and threatening to sue the singer for defamation after TMZ published a story that said he had never met her.

The suit also claims Lace refused to take a paternity test and suggests no baby ever existed: "There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall."

It is then claimed that Lace accused Drake of rape and tried to extort the rapper in exchange for her silence. The suit says Manchester police interviewed Drake about the claim and cleared him.

Drake's lawsuit was filed by celebrity lawyer Larry Stein, with the singer suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
