Toronto, Cananda – Drake is facing financial woes after a business deal in his hometown of Toronto reportedly went south.
According to Forward.com, Drake’s swanky downtown Toronto sports bar Pick 6ix has been shut down indefinitely.
The staff at Pick 6ix posted a notice on the restaurant’s doors on the night of November 18 stating the restaurant would be “closing its doors until further notice due to unfortunate flooding.”
On Thursday (November 21,) the building’s property manager posted a second notice on the building’s front door, contradicting the restaurant’s claims. The notice states the landlord terminated the lease agreement on November 18, the same day Pick 6ix announced it would cease operations.
The termination notice shows the amount owed in unpaid rent is $67,514.73. According to Daily Hive, the property manager attempted to reach several people at Jungle Lion Management by email to settle the debt. Chubbs, a longtime business associate of Drake’s, is listed as one of the people the property manager and landlord had contacted.
The restaurant’s operations manager Jeff Darby denied the reports, saying, “We have always paid rent on time and this month is no different, despite a number of issues with the building – including two floods in the past two years due to issues with the pipes.”
This is the second time the space has reported it’s been forced to close due to flooding. Pick 6ix closed its doors last year due to water damage.
Drake has yet to comment publicly.
