Drake’s Team Denies Swedish Arrest

Representatives for the superstar rapper/writer have shut down reports suggesting that Drake was arrested in Sweden on Thursday (7.14.)

Pertaining to a potential arrest by local police in a Swedish nightclub, the words “Free Drake” started swirling last night on Twitter.

Reps for the musician (born Aubrey Drake Graham) were quick to dispel the speculation by telling The Hollywood Reporter that the story was untrue and the Canadian star had not been arrested, insisting that he was in his hotel in the Swedish capital. 

According to Britain’s The Daily Beast, the social media speculation suggested that Drake had been arrested for marijuana possession in the Scandinavian city. A spokesperson for the Swedish police told the publication that they could not reveal whether the rapper had been arrested, but were able to confirm he was not in police custody, stating “I cannot tell you any thing about that but I can confirm he is not in custody.”

Social media posts show that Drake arrived in Sweden in his baby blue private jet on Wednesday (7.13) and local media reports claim he visited the trendy Östermalm district in Stockholm and ate at Ciccio’s restaurant. 

Drake has yet to comment on the speculation.
