A judge has ruled in favor of Drake and dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed against him by a woman who was allegedly arrested for breaking into his home.

Megan Collins filed the lawsuit in the summer and claimed that the Champagne Papi defamed her and invaded her privacy by divulging private information on Instagram. She demanded to be paid $4 billion. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge dismissed the case, writing that Drake’s posts could not be linked to Collins, Billboard reports.

In referring to Drake by his birth name, Aubrey Graham, Judge Virginia Keeny wrote, “Plaintiff Collins has not demonstrated any of defendant Graham’s statements were about plaintiff Collins or that he used her identity, name, or likeness in his Instagram posts or endorsements. Even if plaintiff Collins could establish the statements were about her, she has failed to establish that such statements were of a private fact that is offensive and objectionable to the reasonable person.”

The Certified Lover Boy’s attorneys say that Collins was arrested in 2017 for trespassing and breaking into Drake’s LA home. They also denied her accusations, calling her lawsuit a “frivolous case” based on “delusional figments of her imagination.”
