Last February, some famous rapper/actor named Drake played a concert at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. A few days after the show, he held a private party — or “intimate evening,” as the flyer above puts it — at the Dollhouse Lounge and Burlesque in Bricktown.
From the always reliable TMZ:
Drake is responsible for a MASSIVE cloud of pot smoke that shut down an Oklahoma City nightclub this month — resulting in at least one arrest — this according to the club owner … who now wants the rapper to pay for his troubles.
The owner of Dollhouse Lounge in OKC just sent Drake and his manager a letter — obtained by TMZ — claiming the rapper asked him to open the nightclub just for him on Thursday March 1st to host a private party … and it went off the rails.
According to the owner, Drake showed up with his massive entourage — and when the party was in full swing, several Dollhouse employees noticed the smell of marijuana coming from Drake’s VIP section.
The owner claims the party was shut down immediately — and soon after, the Oklahoma City Police showed up to restore order and usher people out of the club
While the cops were there, the owner claims they discovered a half-burnt marijuana cigarette in Drake’s section — and then ARRESTED the club manager … after issuing her a ticket.
But the owner thinks it’s BS his club is taking the blame — because he’d never be in this mess if Drake never asked him to host a party. Now, he wants Drake to pay for all his trouble … several thousand dollars worth … or ELSE.
Drake’s reps could not be reached for comment.
I guess when rap stars start bringing their marijuana to private parties being held at weird quazi-strip clubs, it’s just another sign that you live in a big league city. Or it could mean your mayor’s a pothead. One of the two.
Anyway, this whole story seems kind of sketchy. I’d like to see the police report, but TMZ didn’t release that piece of information. They just went off a letter that was probably leaked to them by the bar’s owner, which according to the article above is both a man and a woman. You got to love TMZ. They make us look reliable.
On that note, I’m going to shut up. I’m not a 21-year-old douche bag, so I don’t know a thing about Drake. I’ve heard the guy’s name, but can’t name you a song or anything he does. In fact, I actually Googled his name to learn more about him. This eventually brought me to a Wikipedia page for a Canadian teen soap opera called “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to jump into that river filled with hungry crocodiles from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
