Man Suing Drake For Being Near His Beatdown Is Asking For $250K
The alleged victim of a 2018 club brawl that happened in front of Drake and Odell Beckham Jr. has named his price.
According to documents obtained by The Blast on Thursday (October 15), Bennett Sipes “believes he will be seeking” around $250,000 for the March 2018 fight with Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima that allegedly resulted in a brain injury. The incident went down a West Hollywood hot spot Delilah and though neither Drake nor the NFL star were physically involved, Sipes has them wrapped up in the suit because, according to him, they ordered the attack.
The lawsuit officially came down in January of 2019 and in March, Drake’s lawyer filed documents asking to be promptly removed from the entire ordeal on the basis that, well, he didn’t do a damn thing.
“First and foremost, there can be no legitimate dispute that my client was not involved in the alleged ‘attack’ that is the subject of Plaintiff’s Complaint,” his lawyer wrote, according to The Blast. “Indeed, the security video footage and screenshots from said video, which are incorporated into the complaint, unequivocally show that neither my client nor any member of his security team ever came into physical contact with Mr. Sipes. Rather, the video clearly shows that the entirety of the physical altercation was between Younes Bendjima and Plaintiff, and that Drake was merely a bystander standing several feet away.”
Beckham also denied any involvement in the attack. Revisit the security footage from the night below.
