Drake has reportedly filed a motion to overule deposition subpoena in XXXTentacion's murder trial. As previously reported by TMZ, the judge was persuaded by arguments made by defense attorney Mauricio Padilla to call Drake as a witness in the case. Padilla represents Dedrick Williams, one of three defendants charged with killing XXX. The murder trial for the three men began last week.
According to the docs, Padilla sent Drake a Zoom link for the deposition without putting it under seal, which could have compromised Drake's security given that he’s an international star. Per the motion, Drake also claimed his name never appeared in the investigative files and there's nothing to suggest he has any relevant knowledge about the case. As a result, he believes it's unreasonable to ask him to sit for a deposition and says doing so is just an attempt to 'add more layers of celebrity and notoriety to a tragic and unfortunate event.'” The judge has yet to make a final ruling on Drake's motion.
