Was Drake arrested in Sweden?
Drake may have been detained in Sweden, according to several Instagram and Twitter publications. A few journalists, however, confirmed that the allegations were untrue.
Drake’s staff absolutely verified to The Hollywood Reporter that the “One Dance” hitmaker was in his hotel in the Swedish city, which further confirmed the news.
