Give credit where credit is due, but if there is any truth behind a lawsuit against Drake, the rapper doesn't really like to do that.
A woman named Ericka Lee dated the hitmaker from 2010-2011 and says she helped him write his hit single Marvin's Room. She was reportedly offered $50,000 by Drake "to go away and not file a lawsuit against him," instead of given a credit as a co-writer.
Well, now she's suing for that credit, along with unspecified damages, attorney's fees and punitive damages after alleging in court documents:
"They traded poems, song lyrics and discussed untertaking creative projects together. Lee candidly shared her life story and creative ideas with Drake and trusted him as a confidant, lover and friend."
To make her case, she's even got text messages from the music star which appear to recognize she had a part in writing the song, reading things like, "U basically made that song," and "it's s**t without you."
So far the song sold over half a million downloads, while accumulating 38 million views on YouTube.
What's the deal, Drake? Did you screw this young lady over or is she just pissed that you dumped her?
