On Thursday 3 March 2022, Canadian rapper Drake filed for a temporary restraining order against Mesha Collins, a woman who has reportedly been harassing him for several years. The legal action bars Collins from contacting or coming within 100 yards (91 metres) of Drake, his four-year-old son Adonis, his parents and his lawyer.
In documents obtained by E! News, the rapper alleged that Collins had been harassing him on and off since 2017 despite never having met or communicated with her, adding, “Ms. Collins is a stalker. I have no relationship whatsoever with her.”
“She has sent messages saying she wishes me dead, and that I should shoot myself and my son with a bullet,” Drake stated in the papers. “As a result of Ms. Collins’ harassment and obsession with me, I have suffered and continue to suffer emotional distress and am concerned for my safety and that of my family.”
In 2017, the woman, who is now 29, was arrested and found guilty of trespassing after breaking into Drake’s Los Angeles home. Then in August 2021, she sued the rapper, seeking $4 billion in damages for alleged defamation and invasion of privacy. In a December email to Drake’s lawyer, Collins asked to arrange mediation, adding that she was homeless. He denied her request.
The civil complaint was dismissed that same month, with the judge noting that Collins “has not demonstrated any of [Drake]’s statements were about [her] or that he used her identity, name, or likeness in his Instagram posts or endorsements,” Billboard reported at the time.
According to a court record included in Drake’s filing, during a February 2022 hearing Collins “conceded that she has been arrested three times for trespassing on [Drake]’s property and another five to six times for assaulting or spitting his fans, or otherwise disturbing the peace surrounding” the rapper.
Just after, Collins herself sought a restraining order against the ‘Hotline Bling’ singer but it was denied for lack of evidence. The rapper’s lawyer wrote in the latest filing that he emailed Collins to ask her to serve him, not the musician but the lawyer himself, with the papers and to tell her to not attempt to go to Drake’s home to serve him directly.
“In response to my email, Collins sent me a series of extremely disturbing emails,” the attorney wrote, “threatening not only Mr. Graham [Drake’s last name], but also his son and myself. In these messages, she expresses her desire that Mr. Graham die and that I get what I ‘deserve’.”
He continued, “It is clear that Collins’ behavior and obsession with Graham is escalating, and I am very concerned by the contents of these messages which I believe necessitate the entry of a restraining order against her.”
Less than two months ago, in January 2022, it was alleged that Drake himself was facing a lawsuit from a woman he had intercourse with after she tried emptying the remnants of the condom they used to get pregnant from the rapper, only to realise he had poured hot sauce into it to “kill his sperm.” It is unclear whether the lawsuit has been settled.
Before we get into the hot deets—literally—I’d like to strongly highlight the fact that, as far as I could snoop online, this story has not yet been fully confirmed from either side and the Instagram model is yet to be named. That being said, it does look like this rumour has some truth in it. Let me explain.
On Monday 10 January, Instagram page @TooMuchHotTea broke the story of how a mysterious Instagram model had threatened to sue the Canadian rapper Drake for putting hot sauce into his condom. Now, I can understand why this previous sentence might seem confusing at first. You’re probably thinking, ‘what the heck is this about?’.
According to the account, the model and Drake hit it off on Instagram where they started DMing each other—we’re not sure who approached who first. Both eventually met up at a party and later went back to the rapper’s hotel room to smoke some weed and, well, do the deed. Although Drizzy is known for showing signs of predatory behaviour when it comes to teen women, in this instance, it is said that he was very clear about ensuring that their ‘encounter’ was a consensual one.
Too Much Hot Tea went on to explain that prior to their intercourse, the rapper entered his bathroom to put a condom on. After both were done, he went back to the bathroom to throw the used protection in the bin. That’s where things get spicy—again, literally.
The model reportedly pretended like she needed to use the bathroom too in order to find the discarded condom and pour its contents into her. If you’re not sure why she would do that, it’s easy to assume that she was planning on getting pregnant from the ‘Hotline Bling’ singer.
As soon as she did that however, she immediately experienced a burning sensation and started to scream, causing Drake to run back to the bathroom to see what was going on. He then allegedly told the model that he poured hot sauce from a packet into the condom to kill his sperm, should someone try to get pregnant from him.
The Instagram post that started the whole rumour also contained further details about the rapper’s sexual exploits and what his ding-dong looks like.
On Tuesday, Drake seemingly addressed the tabasco fiasco rumour in an Instagram post of his own where the caption read, “You can have your 15 minutes of fame…I’ll take the other 23 hours and 45 mins”—insinuating that his alleged sexual partner was hungry for her 15 minutes of fame.
As crazy as this story sounds, the rapper has previously admitted to the lengths he goes to ensure that no one tries to take advantage of him in the bedroom. On Brent Faiyaz’s song ‘Wasting Time’ Drake can be heard rapping, “Gold medalist, flushed the Magnums just so they not collectin’ my specimens, damn.”
I don’t know about you, but while I patiently wait to see whether this rumour further develops, I’m really enjoying the memes out there…
