Producer Sues Drake Over Alleged Beating
Hip-hop producer Detail has filed a lawsuit against rapper Drake over allegations he had his bodyguard beat him up. Detail, real name Noel Fisher, filed documents against the “Hotline Bling” star, claiming Drake set him up for a physical encounter with the rapper’s bodyguard.
In the papers obtained by TMZ, Fisher states Drake hired him in 2014 to work as his executive producer. However, Fisher ultimately declined the job, since he was unwilling to exclusively create hits for Drake and no one else. Fisher claims that a little while later, in June 2014, Drake invited him to his Calabasas, California estate for what the hitmaker thought was another chance to work with the Canadian star. But Fisher alleges he was greeted by Drake’s bodyguard called Chubbs, who punched him in the face and ultimately broke his jaw. Fisher says in the documents that Chubbs yelled, “I will beat all your a**es, including your b**ches. I don’t give a f**k. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake’s a punk?” Fisher claims Drake set him up for the beating, and is requesting an unspecified amount in damages. Fisher, who made an appearance on Drake’s 2015 track “305 to My City,” is the producer behind hits from Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Beyonce on her single “Drunk in Love.”
