Drake Sued by Fan Claiming She Was Injured at His New York Concert
A woman has filed suit against Drake after she was seriously injured by a thrown glass bottle at one of his concerts.
Rapper Drake is finding himself embroiled in yet another lawsuit, and this time the plaintiff is a fan.
The fan, who was injured at one of Drake's concerts is blaming the rapper for neglecting to control the conditions at the venue.
A CONCERT THAT ENDED AS A NIGHTMARE
According to The Blast, fan Amanda Giovacco attended Drake’s concert at Madison Square on August 8, 2016.
During the concert, Giovacco was violently struck in the head by a thrown beer bottle by a beer bottle and sustained a traumatic brain injury.
Giovacco is also claiming that due to the injuries she was unable to attend medical school
DRAKE AND THE VENUE ACCUSED OF NEGLIGENCE
Giovacco claims that Drake, and the enterprise that runs Madison Square failed to ensure the safety of the patrons by serving drinks in plastic cups instead of potentially dangerous bottles.
CONCERT WAS OVERCROWDED AND HAD INADEQUATE SECURITY
In her suit, Giovacco accuses Drake and his co-defendants of failing to prevent violent behavior at the concert and allowing the venue to be overcrowded, without compensating with a reinforcement of the security details.
AMANDA GIOVACCO SUFFERED PERMANENT INJURY
Giovacco's suit further claims that due to the injury suffered through the defendants' negligence, she had to resort to medical aid, hospital services, medicinal and medical supplies, which became an unbearable financial burden.
In addition, Giovacco is also claiming that due to the injuries she was unable to attend medical school, which results in a substantial loss of future earnings.
If the judge rules against him, Drake may have to pay out a pretty sum in compensation for the incident in his August 2016 concert.
