Drake has been hit with a lawsuit by a former stylist who claims the rapper stiffed him out of $76,490.
According to TMZ, Drizzy hired stylist Michael Raphael in August 2012 at a rate of $39,583 a month. Services included styling, clothing and graphic design for Drake’s company OVO, brand direction and photography.
Additional expenses not included in their deal were incurred by Raphael when he had to shell out money out of his own pockets for items that included travel expenses, stores like Nike, Diesel, American Rag and several boutiques.
The rapper paid his bills to Raphael regularly up until December 2012, when the payments suddenly stopped. That month the stylist says he spent $76,490. He’s suing Drake for the amount owed.
According to the report, Drake’s use of stylists is nothing new. He regularly spends$30,000 a month employing them. In addition he spends thousands more on jewelry and clothing.
