Drake and Odell Beckham Jr. are facing another legal battle.
According to TMZ, the two men were slapped with a lawsuit over a physical altercation that occured in West Hollywood. Surveillance footage showed the plaintiff, Bennett Sipes, getting attacked on March 24, 2018 at Delilah nightclub. Drake and Odell were among the group of people watching the fight; Kourtney Kardashian's ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima was one of the men seen carrying out the assault.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Sipes claims he got into a verbal confrontation with the defendants inside the venue. Sipes said that as he began leaving the VIP area, he witnessed Drake make a "throat slash" hand gesture, which he took as a threat. The defendant claimed he then attempted to enter the restroom, but was stopped by a group of men that included Drake and Odell, as well as their respective entourages.
Sipes alleges Drake and Odell ordered the attack, which has allegedly resulted in "extreme mental anguish and physical pain." He is also suing Bendjima as well as Delilah nightclub for not providing adequate security.
Sipes's lawyer told TMZ that they tried to settle the case out of court, but were unsuccessful.
"We gave the defendant's months to settle this claim without litigation, but when they failed to be accountable for their actions, we were left with no choice but to file suit to seek justice for our client," attorney Colin Jones said.
Sipes is seeking unspecified damages.
