After rumors surfaced that Canadian rapper Drake had been arrested in Sweden, the actor’s team denied the claims. Swedish police said that while they would not say whether the rapper had been arrested, they could confirm that he was not in police custody.
“I can’t tell you anything about that but I can confirm that he is not in custody,” the spokesman said. The statement comes as Drake’s team confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the rapper has not been arrested, despite initial speculation that he was taken to a nightclub in Stockholm by police.
As documented in a series of Instagram posts, the Canadian rapper touched down at Sweden’s Arlanda Airport on Wednesday for lunch and took a flight in his personal baby blue Boeing 767, dubbed “Air Drake.”
Since his arrival in Sweden, local media reports say the rapper has visited Stockholm’s trendy Östermalm district and visited Ciccio’s restaurant. It is not vivid whether the rapper is in Sweden to record music or for personal reasons.
Last month, Drake released his seventh studio-inspired album, Honestly, Nevermind, which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200.
