An official from Drake’s camp released a simple statement: “Drake is at his hotel and has not been arrested.”

It’s unclear where the rumor began, but many believe that it’s related to the Brittney Griner situation going on in Russia, where the WNBA superstar has been detained for months over a marijuana vape cartridge. A$AP Rockey was also arrested in Sweden in 2019.
