Drake Tries To Ban Social Media From Upcoming Assault Trial

By HHL JT

Producer Detail claims that in 2014 Drake had him beat down because he refused an offer to become his exclusive producer.

Drake is alleged to have invited Detail to his LA-area home to work on a track. Detail said he was reluctant to come because Drake had been angered by the rejection, but decided enough time had passed.

Apparently, it hadn't because he says he was attacked by Drake's bodyguard Chubbs upon arriving at the home.

"I will beat all your asses, including your bitches. I don't give a fuck. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake's a punk?" Chubbs is said to have yelled during the beating.

Detail suffered a broken jaw and other injuries in the attack.

He's suing Drake for damages and the case goes on trial next month. In a pre-trial motion, Drake has asked to ban social media and blog posts (like this one) from the proceeding

The Blast reports:

"Drake asked the judge to ban any evidence of hearsay — specifically any statements that originated from websites, social media and on the Internet — from the trial.

The rapper says due to his fame, his life serves as fodder for various blogs, websites and social media posts. He believes if the stories and posts are presented to the jury, it could lead to the risk of prejudice.

Drake’s motion states: “Due to the plethora of news stories available, and after observing Detail’s inclination towards muddying the waters by introducing said news stories during the deposition of Chubbs, Drake is concerned Detail may try to introduce the same stories at trial.”

Detail is expected to ask for many millions.
