Drake Team Denies Arrest Rumors & Social Media Reactions

SOCIAL MEDIA TRENDS - Keisha Wray Post About Whether Or Not Drake Was Arrested


Drake’s team shuts down rumors claiming that the rapper and his team were arrested in Sweden.

Journalist Philip Lewis confirmed that the rapper was not apprehended by the police. Lewis confirmed through police in Sweden that Drake was not in their custody before the rapper’s rep shared an official statement denying the claims. “Drake is at his hotel and has not been arrested,” the team said in a statement reported by Huffington Post’s  Phillip Lewis.

Prior to his team responding to the claims, Drizzy was subject to plenty of memes on the Internet leading to a short-lived #FreeDrake campaign. After A$AP Rocky’s 2019 arrest in Sweden, fans were deeply concerned that, if the rumors of the arrest were true, Drake might end up facing some sort of unjust punishment.

Some believe that this rumor was started in reaction to the Brittney Griner case involving the WNBA star who has been jailed in Russia for months after being found with cannabis while traveling through an airport. The rapper, who is fresh off of his new album Honestly, Nevermind, just announced the return of OVO Fest this year, dubbed October World Weekend. Drizzy’s bringing back OVO Fest with a Young Money reunion alongside Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, as well as hosting Chris Brown and Lil Baby‘s tour date in the 6ix.
