Drake - Drake sued by former stylist

Subscribe to Drake alerts

Drake's former stylist is suing him for $76,000.

Style guru Michael Raphael claims the 'Started from the Bottom' rapper failed to reimburse him for nearly $40,000 in expenses - including shopping trips and plane rides - incurred while working for the star which aren't covered by his salary.

According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ, Drake hired the stylist in August 2012 to consult on his OVO clothing line at a rate of $39,583 per month. However, Michael says he also spent thousands of dollars of his own money on buying designer clothing such as Nike and Diesel for the rapper, as well as paying for flights and hotels to meet him in locations around the world.

The style guru claims the 26-year-old star promptly paid his salary and covered additional expenses between August and November 2012 without any issues, but abruptly stopped payments in December 2012. He is now suing his former employer for $76,490 to cover both his salary for that month and extra charges he incurred while working for Drake.

Michael provided numerous receipts to back up his claims, which show that he spent $1,162 at Nike, $1,483 at Diesel and $714 at American Rag.

Drake - who recently won his own legal battle against the New York City nightclub he famously brawled in with Chris Brown - has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
