Several messages, purportedly sent from Lace to Drake, appear in the lawsuit, and he says he didn't have the "time or energy to respond". However, the singer alleges that Layla then tried to extort him once again by asking for millions of dollars in return for her silence.

Police ultimately cleared him but Lace allegedly continued to demand millions of dollars for silence. As a result, Drake is suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.
After threatening to leak her messages from Drake, she then went on radio station SiriusXM and repeated her claims that she was pregnant with Drake's baby. "There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall", he said in the lawsuit. When Drake denied those requests, she allegedly hired a lawyer to pursue accusations that he raped her during their encounter in February 2017. She admitted to police that she had consensual sex with him but claimed he forced her into oral sex.
According to the suit, the case was referred to Manchester police, who interviewed Drake and ultimately cleared him. The suit then claims that Lace went to authorities in NY to accuse Drake of raping her, and that the case was referred to authorities in the United Kingdom who interviewed and ultimately cleared him.
