Drake sued by former stylist
Los Angeles: Rapper Drake is being sued by his former stylist Michael Raphael for the amount of USD 76,490.
Style guru Michael Raphael claims the `Started from the Bottom` rapper failed to reimburse him for nearly USD 40,000 in expenses, including shopping trips and plane rides, incurred while working for the star which are not covered by his salary, reported Ace Showbiz.
According to the lawsuit, Drake hired the stylist in August 2012 to consult on his OVO clothing line at a rate of USD 39,583 per month.
However, Raphael said he also spent thousands of dollars of his own money on buying designer clothing for the rapper, as well as paying for flights and hotels to meet him in locations around the world.
Raphael`s claims will be the latest in a list of lawsuits that Drake has faced thus far in his successful career, after those resulting from his altercation with Chris Brown in 2012, and the one filed by an ex-girlfriend for supposed use of her vocals on his song `Marvin`s Room`.
