Jeweler Wrongfully Sold $30,000 Rolex to Drake


A man is suing Drake, because he claims that Drake stole his watch, more like bought. New York City lawyer James McMillan said he purchased a brand new, rose gold Rolex Presidential with a diamond bezel for $30,000 back in 2009 at Rafaello & Co. on West 47th Street, and happily wore the splashy timepiece for two years without any problems. Last year, the Manhattan entertainment lawyer brought the watch in for a cleaning at the same store, which boasts Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx and Carmelo Anthony among its clients. But when he went back a week later to pick it up, staffers told him his beloved bling was not there — because owner Rafael Aranbayev “loved the Rolex so much he was now wearing it as his own personal watch,” McMillan claims in a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

The persistent McMillan finally learned who had his prized timepiece: Canadian rap star Drake, according to McMillan’s lawyer, Claudine King. “He goes back to the store and confronts them and they confirmed that the watch was sold.”

We’re told the rapper does own a Rose-Gold Rolex — which can be seen on the cover of his album “Take Care” — but is adamant he bought it directly from Rolex himself. Our sources say Drake NEVER received a watch from the midtown jeweler named in the case. (TMZ)

This story is almost to ridiculous, why even go after Drake? That is if he even bought the watch from that jeweler. What you do you think?

  • Go after the Jeweler not the person who purchased it-duuuuh! Stupid Ass! What a cheap way to get attention. NEEEEXT!
