TMZ reports that rappers Drake and Future are being sued by a woman claiming she was raped at their concert by a man associated with the venue where it was held.

As People reports, the woman (identified only as "Jane Doe") is seeking damages of $25 million, claiming that the negligence of Drake, Future and the other defendants led to the alleged attack during a August 14, 2016 show at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

The woman says she followed the man - identified as Leavy Johnson - who then allegedly violently attacked her, causing severe physical and psychological injury. Johnson was ultimately arrested and now awaits trial, according to The Tennessean. He is now awaiting trial.

For visitors Stoke , the only players who will miss out are Stephen Ireland and Ibrahim Afellay who are both long term absentees. Only Frank Lampard and Alan Shearer (8) have scored more goals on Premier League opening day than Rooney (7).

The unidentified female said in her suit that all parties involved including Drake, Future, the venue and others should have done their due diligence in employing Johnson, who had outstanding warrants for assault at the time of the incident. She says Drake, Future, the arena and multiple others should have known that employing Johnson had the potential to cause a unsafe situation for others.

Drake and Future have been hit with a $25 million lawsuit by a female fan who attended their Summer Sixteen tour past year. Whether she gets all that is another question, but I bet she gets a nice settlement of sorts.
