Migos member Takeoff is being sued by a Los Angeles woman who alleges he raped her at a house party in June, according to Billboard.
The woman, who filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court as Jane Doe on Wednesday (Aug. 5), claims the incident occurred on June 22 at a party in Encino, California.
She says DJ Daryl “Durel” McPherson, who Dj’s for Migos on occasions, asked her to come there.
According to the suit, loud music was playing when she showed up and sometime afterward, Takeoff (real name Kirshnik Khari Ball) arrived.
She says she saw a pistol sitting on a table and Takeoff staring at her during the night which made her “extremely uncomfortable.”
According to TMZ, DJ Daryl “Durel” McPherson and her were going upstairs when Takeoff was coming down the steps at the same time. She states, the DJ and Takeoff got into a heated discussion, so she decided to depart to the man’s bedroom till the situation was over.
She alleges Takeoff touched her rear end and she refused his advances. Then Takeoff flipped her over face-down and raped her.
She claims she went to a local hospital and the staff noticed physical evidence of forceful rape. She states the LAPD was notified by the hospital.
She is currently suing for emotional distress, sexual battery, and assault.
After the allegations had been made public, the rapper finally decided to react and deny the accusations against him. His lawyer, Drew Findling, forwarded a statement to TMZ saying:
“We have reviewed the allegations and have similarly done our own due diligence. What has become abundantly clear is that the allegations made against Takeoff are patently and provably false. The claims and statements made regarding this lawsuit indicate that the plaintiffs’ representatives have not spoken with relevant witnesses or reviewed available evidence.”
“Takeoff is renowned for his artistic talent as well as his quiet, reserved, and peaceful personality. In this instance, those known personality traits have made him a target of an obvious exploitative money grab. As his counsel, we are well aware and well versed on the importance of civil and criminal prosecution of true sexual assaults. This is not one of those situations.”
