Woman Armed With Knife Arrested After She Tries To Get Into Drake’s Mansion! According to the Toronto Sun, a woman armed with a knife attempted to get onto Drake’s luxurious estate in Toronto Canada while the rapper was home on Tuesday March 30. The female intruder reportedly accosted security outside the superstar’s palatial Toronto mansion’s gate and allegedly struck a security guard with a metal pipe in an attempt to get into Drake’s Toronto mansion at around 4:50 p.m. before being taken into custody.
The “God’s Plan” rapper was inside the extravagant 50,000-square-foot home at the time, a source revealed to the Toronto Sun.
7 police cars and a Toronto EMS vehicle responded swiftly to the Bridle Path estate incident at around 5:30 p.m., but details of the extent of the guard’s injuries remain unknown. According to onlookers at the scene, police were seen securing evidence, including the metal pipe and knife.
“The perpetrator did not get anywhere near Drake,” a source said. “In fact, the intruder did not make it past the front gate.“
Although police did not verify if indeed the multi-platinum star was home at the time of the incident, they are treating the case as though he was. At the time of this press, police are yet to release any information on the potential charges the woman will be facing.
Drake moved into the $50 million mansion last year. During an exclusive interview with Architectural Digest last year, Drake’s fans had an opportunity to take a closer look at the expansive property.
Designed by Canadian architectural and interior designer Ferris Rafauli, the luxurious mansion boasts 50,000 square feet and plenty of amenities, which include an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court crowned by a 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight, a Bösendorfer concert grand piano designed by Rafauli and Takashi Murakami and a 3,200-square-foot master-bedroom.
“Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years,” the rapper told AD at the time. “I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel. It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong.”
