A man has filed a lawsuit against Drake, Odell Beckham Jr. and Younes Bendjima over an alleged assault which occurred outside of L.A. nightclub Delilah two years ago.
The man identified as Bennett Sipes filed court documents on Tuesday, October 13 asking for $250,000 in damages.
Bennett Sipes claims he suffered “traumatic brain injury, as well as injuries to his back, neck, shoulders, etc.” on March 24, 2018 when he was attacked by Bendjima, as well as members of Drake and Beckham’s entourages in an alley near the nightclub.
According to the lawsuit, Drake and Beckham followed their respective crews to the alley to watch Sipes get attacked.
Sipes alleges that he tried to enter the VIP section where Drake and Beckham were located, but a confrontation ensued. During the altercation, Sipes claims Drake gave a “throat slash” hand gesture, and he was later allegedly attacked while trying to leave the restroom.
Sipes is seeking $250,000 to cover “past and future pain and suffering, medical bills, lost future earnings, past and future emotional distress and punitive damages.”
Sipes is also suing the nightclub for their lack of adequate security outside their venue.
