Report: Drake will not press charges against the female fan who broke into his home
Last week, reports surfaced that Drake’s L.A. home was burgled, apparently by a fan merely attempting to quench her thirst.
The ‘Hotline Bling’ hitmaker wasn’t home when a member of his staff found a 24-year-old woman in one of the bedrooms, wearing one of the rapper’s hoodies, at around 10.30pm on April 3. According to TMZ, after police were called, the unnamed intruder told officers she had permission to enter, which she didn’t, and confessed to taking Pepsi, Sprite, and Fiji water. The woman was arrested and charged with felony burglary.
However, TMZ is now reporting that Drake is willing to cut his fan a huge break by urging authorities to drop the felony burglary case against her, going as far to have his lawyer contact the L.A. County District Attorney to make it clear that he will not cooperate in any prosecution, as he believes the woman may have mental health issues and thinks it would be cruel to make her a felon and send her to prison.
Without Drake’s co-operation on the felony charge, it looks like the female fan may just catch a break.
