Drake, Younes Bendjima And Odell Beckham Jr. Are Being Sued For An Alleged Nightclub Attack
The attack took place in an LA nightclub back in March.
Drake, Younes Bendjima and NFL’s Odell Beckham Jr. are being sued for allegedly orchestrating a physical attack on a man outside a nightclub in LA back in March.
In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Bennett Sipes claims he went to see his girlfriend in the VIP section of popular LA nightclub Delilah, who was talking to the three defendants. The documents state an “argument” broke out between the defendants and plaintiff. Bennett then claims he witnessed Drake signal to his private security a “throat slash” hand gesture, which he states in the documents as being understood as “some type of physical threat towards himself.”
As he was attempting to enter the restroom, he says he was attacked by Younes Bendjima, Kourtney Kardashian’s ex, along with members of Drake and Odell’s entourage. According to E!, the lawsuit says: “During all times relevant to this incident, no personnel from Delilah took any action to prevent the defendants and their personal from attacking the plaintiff.”
Bennett is seeking repayment of all damages incurred, including past and future wage loss, hospital and medical expenses, as well as attorneys’ fees. His attorney told TMZ, “We gave the defendant’s months to settle this claim without litigation, but when they failed to be accountable for their actions, we were left with no choice but to file suit to seek justice for our client.”
Meanwhile, E! reports a source close to Drake denies his involvement in the incident, saying, “Drake was there in a group; he never ordered anyone to beat anyone up. The video didn’t catch him beating up anyone.”
