Drake & Future Sued $25 Million By Woman Raped At Their Concert -A woman who says she was raped last August at a Drake and Future show at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee is suing the two rappers for $25 million.

The unidentified woman claims she was approached by “a man associated with Bridgestone Arena” who said he’d take her backstage to meet Drake and Future.

Instead the man, Leavy Johnson, “suddenly … pushed Jane Doe to the ground and violently assaulted her, shattering her cell phone and causing severe physical and psychological injury.”

Johnson, who had outstanding warrants for assault at the time the incident, has since been arrested and charged with rape. He is currently awaiting trial.

The woman claims the arena, the touring company, Drake and Future should have known that employing Johnson would “pose an unreasonable risk to others.”

She is seeking no less than $25 million.

Neither Drake nor Future has commented on the lawsuit.
