However, while the gossip continued, Drizzy’s team confirmed with multiple sources that he was not arrested.  

Additionally, Huffington Post journalist Phillip Lewis took to Twitter in the early hours of Friday morning (Jul. 14) to confirm the speculation was false. 

“FYI: I talked to Swedish police and they told me Drake is not currently in their custody. (That was the only info they would give),” he added.  

Lewis also confirmed, “From Drake’s team: “Drake is at his hotel and has not been arrested.”  

Among the concerned fans were those who used the gossip as a reason to roast Drake. 

“Drake got arrested so he could use the mugshot for a cover what a guy,” wrote one.  

“They finally arrested Drake for dropping that album,” one Twitter user joked, referring to his latest album, Honestly, Nevermind.  

Another user had a similar sense of humor: “Sweedish police have arrested Drake after listening to Honestly, Nevermind. ‘This s### trash, we gotta stop him’ -Sweedish Police.” 

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Drake announced his plans for the upcoming October World Weekend Concert. The forthcoming “Road to OVO Fest Tour,” will feature a highly anticipated Young Money Reunion with Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. Lil Baby and Chris Brown will also appear with the Canadian hitmaker at the concert.
