A lawsuit was filed August 5 in Los Angeles, alleging that the rapper sexually assaulted the woman at a house party in Los Angeles in June.

The alleged victim claims that she was invited to the party by DJ Durel, who tours with the Atlanta rap trio, at which Takeoff showed interest in her and made her feel uncomfortable before the alleged assault. 

In response to the news of the lawsuit, Takeoff’s attorney Drew, has finally issued a statement to TMZ.

He stated that: ‘They have reviewed the allegations and have similarly done their own due diligence.’ He added that: ‘the allegations made against Takeoff are patently and provably false. And as his counsel, they are well aware and well versed on the importance of civil and criminal prosecution of true sexual assaults and this is not one of those situations.’
