Michael Raphael, Drake's former stylist, is suing the rapper for unpaid bills.
Huffington Post reported that Raphael is suing Drake for over $76,490 in expenses from his employment in 2012. He says that Drake owes him reimbursement from $40,000 in shopping expenses and $39,000 for his final month of employment.
Drake hired him for consulting, personal styling and graphic design, from August to December 2012.
According to TMZ, Drake punctually paid his bills from August to November, but suddenly stopped paying in December. Raphael provides receipts from various stores showing how much money he spent to style the rapper. A few of the charges included $1,162 from Nike, a Diesel charge of $1,483, and a $714 bill from American Rag. Raphael said he used his own debit card for certain purchases.
GlobalGrind.com reported that 30-year-old Raphael is a successful business owner. He owns an appointment-only boutique called Rest Store, located on the second floor of a Mulberry Street building. Drake has yet to respond to the stylist's lawsuit.
