Drake may be the next rapper dealing with the fallout from an altercation with a fan.
Jeremis Perez Soriano claims that last Thursday night (September 23) he was punched by Drake’s bodyguard and had to head to the hospital, where he was given six stitches. He and another fan said that they never put hands on Drizzy, although Soriano admits that after he was hit he began to call the rapper names.
“These are the same people that are buying your CDs,” Soriano told local Jacksonville television station CBS47. “You shouldn’t treat us like that.” [Watch below]
According to reports, Soriano will be pressing charges against the rapper, seeking payment for his medical bills. A rep for the rapper was not available as of press time.
Drake had three dates in Florida last week to kick off his Light Dreams and Nightmares tour. He took the stage at Radio City Music Hall last night for the first of two consecutive New York City performances. —Adam Fleischer
