TORONTO – Canadian rapper Drake is back in hot water, this time over a lawsuit from an alleged fight that broke out outside his 2014 OVO Fest after party at Muzik nightclub.
Pedro Sacadura is suing Drake, Muzik nightclub, and five members of Drake’s security entourage for $100,000 in personal injury damages.
In a video Sacadura sent Global News, he is heard yelling at one of Drake’s alleged entourage members, “You assaulted me first, you assaulted me first,” before punches were thrown.
Sacadura claims his chin was cut and his leg fractured when the fight broke out while he was waiting for Drake’s autograph.
Sacadura did not want to appear on camera, but rather sent a statement Monday to Global News.
“I wish it didn’t happen. I wish I’d kept my mouth shut and let him go on being rude and aggressive for no reason … cause then maybe none of this would have happened,” the statement read.
“All that said though, no, I don’t take responsibility for anything that happened to me that night. Because I wasn’t the one in the wrong.”
Representatives for Muzik nightclub, nor Sacadura’s lawyer responded to interview requests.
Security expert Chris Menary told Global News that in situations similar to this alleged incident, it’s all about keeping the celebrity safe.
“You can’t please everybody, our job is not there to please, it’s there to protect the asset,” said Menary.
“There is interaction with fans, and some of them are upset because they didn’t get what they’re outcome was and it’s customer service at the end of the day.”
The statement of claim was filed at the Ontario Superior Court and none of the allegations against Drake or his entourage have been proven in court.
