Drake Sued By Producer Detail Over Alleged Beating
Drake is being sued by record producer Detail, who claims the rapper had a bodyguard beat him up.
According to a new lawsuit, Detail alleges Drake asked him to produce his music in 2014. But he claims the performer wanted exclusivity, and since Detail still wanted to be able to work with artists, he says he turned Drake down. The relationship supposedly soured as a result, until Drake allegedly invited Detail over to his Calabasas home in June of that year to discuss working together again.
But Detail alleges when he arrived, Drake’s bodyguard Chubb punched him in the jaw in what was a premeditated set-up. In the legal documents, he claims Chubb screamed during the violent encounter, “I will beat all your asses, including your bitches. I don’t give a f*ck. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake’s a punk?” Detail is now seeking financial compensation from Drake, reports TMZ.
Detail, whose real name is Noel Fisher, released his own album last year, but may be best known for producing Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love.” The song earned the producer a Grammy last year. His lone credit with Drake is for the rapper’s 2013 album, Nothing Was The Same, for which he was both a producer and a guest vocalist. Though he often posts about his recording studio work on Instagram, Detail has not publicly commented on the lawsuit, nor has Drake.
