In other news, Drake is being sued for more than $70,000 by his former stylist. Michael Raphael is suing his former boss for $39,583 in consulting fees which included styling, photography, and graphic design for Drake’s OVO. FYI, Raphael is the owner of the Rest Store boutique in New York City. He was hired by Drake in August of 2012 to consult the entertainer on styling choices which included his American Music Awards appearance in November and the A$AP Rocky “F*ckin’ Problems” video shoot.
It looks like the $70, 000 bill is for one month’s work, because Raphael is only seeking payment for the December 2012. Speaking of which, the lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court. Raphael claims Drake left him to foot the bill on several occasions. Find out what that’s all about and get the rest of the details below with Tha Wire.
