In about two months I expect to be reporting that Drake is being sued by his lawyer for unpaid legal fees. In addition to be taken to court over $75,000 he owes for clothing by his stylist, Drizzy now faces another lawsuit for $50,000 claiming he ripped off the owl pendant he “designed.” Apparently something WAS the same.
The jeweler Baden Baden Inc. (owned by designer Michael Raphael) filed the lawsuit, claiming Drizzy hired the company to make a custom diamond-studded platinum owl pendant back in January … and paid $49,204. Then in June … BB claims gold duplicates of the pendant started surfacing on Drake’s Instagram. According to the lawsuit, BB claims Drake took its original design, copied it, and handed out the knockoffs to his pals. Baden Baden is suing for copyright infringement, demanding unspecified damages, and asking the court to force Drake to hand over the owl copies. One potential sticking point — Drake’s been using the owl logo for years … it’s the freakin’ cover of his 2011 mixtape.
Drake‘s new album Nothing Was The Same hits store shelves September 24th. See pictures of Drake‘s crew wearing the golden pendants below although the photos don’t do much to help his case. Stay out of court Drizzy your news stories are starting to look like Chief Keef‘s.
