Drake Getting Sued Over Tweet Telling Fans Not To See 'Drake's Homecoming' Movie

Tonight's the night (and the only night) that the movie Drake’s Homecoming: The Lost Footage will play at theaters across North America.

Earlier this week, Drake distanced himself from the project with this Tweet.

The film was co-produced by Rap-A-Lot CEO J. Prince and his son Jas Prince, who is credited with discovering Drake. According to Drake, they are also boycotting the film.

Complicating things is that Drake seems to have signed a contract that gives him 15 percent of the film's profits.

"Personally, I think he should honor his commitments,” Mark Berry, who also produced the film, said to the Los Angeles Times. "Bottom line is, you signed a contract. You got to honor it."
Now, the film’s distribution company SpectiCast is suing Drake for his disparaging tweets. They claim  that Drake did it to attract attention to his Twitter page, and to promote his OVO Festival.

The movie's production company Attack Media has also made noise about suing Drizzy to the tune of $15 million.  As of now, they haven't filed any paperwork.

The documentary-style movie features "lost" concert footage from a 2009 Drake show in Toronto.

It will be interesting to see if all this negative publicity is good or bad for the project.
