A woman who was allegedly raped at a Drake and Future concert last year is suing the rappers for $25 million, claiming their failure to ensure safety from arena employees led to her attack.
According to a lawsuit filed earlier this week in federal court, the woman, identified only as Jane Doe, claims a man – later identified as Leavy Johnson – approached her at Drake/Future's August 14th, 2016 concert at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. asking if she wanted to meet the performers backstage.
As Jane Doe followed him backstage, she claims he suddenly pushed her down to the ground and violently assaulted her, "shattering her cell phone and causing severe physical and psychological injury.”
The woman claims Johnson had outstanding warrants for assault at the time of the alleged rape and that she's suing the rappers in addition to the touring and security companies involved, for hiring someone who would “pose an unreasonable risk to others.”
The woman is seeking no less than $25 million in damages, plus court costs.
Johnson has since been arrested and charged with rape, according to The Tennessean and is currently awaiting trial.
