Drake and Future Served With $25 Million Lawsuit by Woman Allegedly Raped at Their Concert
Drake and Future are among a group being sued for $25 million for negligence.
The lawsuit was filed this week by a woman who alleges she was raped at the artists' concert.
In the new lawsuit obtained by People, the woman says she was sexually attacked at the Drake/Future concert on August 14, 2016 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee during the Summer Sixteen tour.
The woman is identified only as Jane Doe.
The lawsuit alleges she was approached by "a man associated with Bridgestone Arena" who offered to take her backstage to meet the performers.
He instead "suddenly … pushed Jane Doe to the ground and violently assaulted her, shattering her cell phone and causing severe physical and psychological injury."
According to The Tennessean, Leavy Johnson, 38, was indicted on a rape charge in January, and is currently awaiting trial in Nashville.

He reportedly had outstanding warrants for his arrest at the time of the alleged attack.
The woman argues that the arena, the touring companies, the security company, and the rappers should have been aware that he “posed an unreasonable risk to others."
She is seeking court costs along with $25 million in damages.
