Drake Concert Film May Lead To Lawsuit

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Days ahead of the release of a forthcoming concert documentary centered around a 2009 Drake concert in Toronto, Drake and the film's producers are at odds over the project with Drake labeling it as "unauthorized."

“The Drake Homecoming film is not something OVO or Drake have any part in, I feel it is my responsibility to inform and protect my fans,” Drake said via his Twitter account.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the producers of the film are considering a $15 million libel suit, alleging that Drake broke a contractual agreement. According to he producers, Drake had consented to the filming of the concert and was paid $15,000 cash and promised a 15% share of the profits for his participation.

Mark Berry of Attack Media, listed as one of the film's co-producers also told the Los Angeles Times that they had offered Drake the opportunity to participate in the film's production, or for his label Cash Money to purchase the concert footage.

A rep for Drake did not respond to a request for comment on the matter. – Staff Writers
