The rapper Drake, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, is seeking a temporary restraining order from his alleged stalker.
According to legal documents, filed in Los Angeles County Court on Friday, Drake, 35, filed for protection against a woman and sought protection for his entire family after his legal counsel received violent and disturbing text messages threatening his life.
Drake Seeks Temporary Order Of Protection Against Alleged Stalker
In court documents obtained exclusively by The Blast, Drake is asking for protection for his son, Adonis Graham, age 4. He is also asking for protection for both of his parents: mother Sandra Graham, 74, and father Dennis Graham, 69. His is also seeking protection for his lawyer, Stanton Larry Stein, 77.
According to the documents, his alleged stalker reportedly stated that she was homeless in California. When asked why the people needed protection from Collins, the documents state that “Collins has threatened not only Mr. Graham, but also his son and his counsel Stanton L. Stein. Mr. Stein will allow contact for service of pleadings and court documents only, but threats and harassing messages must stop.”
When asked to explain their relationship, Drake wrote, “Ms. Collins is a stalker. I have no relationship whatsoever with her.”
Drake Previously Won Defamation Lawsuit Against Alleged Stalker
In the documents, Drake states that “Collins sued me for $4 billion. I won.” Back in December, Drake won a court ruling for a defamation lawsuit filed by Collins, who was allegedly arrested for breaking into his home in 2017. At the time, she claimed that Drake defamed her and posted private information about her on Instagram.
Attorneys for the singer called the lawsuit a “frivolous case” based on “delusional figments of her imagination.” A Los Angeles Superior Court agreed, dismissing the case on the grounds that Drake had not posted anything about her – or anything related to her – on Instagram.
“Plaintiff Collins has not demonstrated any of defendant Graham’s statements were about plaintiff Collins or that he used her identity, name, or likeness in his Instagram posts or endorsements,” Judge Virginia Keeny wrote at the time. “Even if plaintiff Collins could establish the statements were about her, she has failed to establish that such statements were of a private fact that is offensive and objectionable to the reasonable person.”
Drake Describes Civil Harassment In The Forms Of Emails ‘Wishing Me Dead’
Drake claims that he has faced harassment from Collins from “2017 off and on to present.”
When asked if anyone was there to witness the harassment, the documents state, “See attached declaration of my counsel, who recently received emails from Collins wishing me dead, as well as the concurrently-filed Request for Judicial Notice in Support of this Request for Restraining Order, which seeks judicial notice of Collins’s criminal conviction for trespassing at my residence in 2017.”
The document continues, “Please see attached declaration from my lawyer, which details Collins’s trespass at my residence in 2017, her attempts to gain contact with me by filing a frivolous $4billion defamation case against me, her baseless attempt to seek a restraining order against me, and emails to my counsel where she expresses that she wishes me dead and that my counsel get what he ‘deserve[s].’”
Emails To Drake From Alleged Stalker Take A Violent Turn
One attached email that is allegedly from Collins states:
I am currently homeless in California, because Aubrey Drake Graham.
Will Aubrey Drake Graham, be present?
Can you make prior contact with Aubrey Drake Graham and offer mediation?
How would you suggest I proceed?
In another email allegedly from Collins, “Can you arrange for Aubrey Drake Graham to be present during the conference/mediation? As I need to speak with him immediately. Please include the exact date and time (consider, I am currently in Eastern Standard Time zone.) Looking forward to speedy response.”
However, emails start turning violent when Collins’ mediation expectations did not go as planned. In one email, Collins allegedly writes, “Listen Larry Stein, This Gay White B—- Aubrey Graham needs to stop harassing me and put a bullet through his own f—ing white skull asap. Youre an old ugly white hunkie trash lying b—-. I hope you get what you deserve too white trash.”
Later emails read, “Encourage him to kill his self and that white b—- son. Kill your self drake. Put a bullet through your head now b—-. Kill yourself.” Yet another email reads, “I wish him death now. Tell him to shot his self in the head. White f——-. Karma b—–.”
Drake says that he has suffered emotional distress based on this harassment, writing, “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.”
