Drake and 21 Savage Sued For $4M Over Using Fake Vogue Covers To Promote New Album

Condé Nast, the parent company of Vogue, has sued Drake and 21 Savage for creating a false Vogue magazine as a component of their Her Loss album promotion.

Condé Nast, according to TMZ, has filed a lawsuit against the OVO hitmaker and Slaughter Gang rapper, claiming that they have not "endorsed" the Her Loss promo in any way.

The publishing behemoth is suing for $4 million in damages, claiming that the fraudulent marketing breaches intellectual property regulations. Furthermore, Vogue alleges that it requested a halt to the manufacture and distribution of the free publications, but to no effect.

The lawsuit comes as a surprise after Drake thanked Vogue's long-running Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour last month while unveiling the fake magazine cover on Instagram.

“Me and my brother on newsstands tomorrow,” he wrote in his caption. “Thanks @voguemagazine and Anna Wintour for the love and support on this historic moment.”

Drizzy even called out Vogue on his "Jimmy Cooks" duet with 21 Savage earlier this year, rapping: "Bitch, don't tell me you model if you ain't been in 'Vogue.'"

According to TMZ, Drake's team is "surprised and confused" by the lawsuit, despite the fact that other companies such as Howard Stern and NPR have willingly participated in the record promotion drive.

The iconic radio DJ was amazed by Drake and 21 Savage's ingenuity in staging a faux interview featuring memorable statements from both rappers utilizing excerpts from his show.
