Judge Orders Drake & 21 Savage to Cease All Use of Fake Vogue Magazine Cover


The lawsuit against Drake and 21 Savage for their bogus Vogue cover is moving swiftly, with a judge already siding with the publication.

Just days after Vogue's parent company Condé Nast sued the "Her Loss" duo for using their trademark and likeness during their album release, U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff has approved a restraining order forcing them to stop using the unapproved magazine cover. Rakoff called out Drizzy and 21 for "misleading consumers" and "deceiving the public."

To make the magazine shoot appear more believable, Drake even tagged Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in his initial Instagram post featuring the cover.

"Me and my brother on newsstands tomorrow!! Thanks @voguemagazine and Anna Wintour, for the love and support on this historic moment. Her Loss Nov 4th," Champagne Papi wrote in the now-deleted post. The lawsuit shot down any insinuation that Wintour was involved in making the cover.

Vogue and Condé Nast are seeking damages upward of $4 million, and thus far, it appears they have a good chance of winning the suit. In the court docs, the fashion and lifestyle publication says that the men "irreparably harmed" their company by distributing copies of the illegitimate cover.

Drake and the Slaughter Gang frontman concocted a rollout that included several stunts, such as a make-believe NPR Tiny Desk concert and live performance. Aubrey Graham also launched a "fake serious" interview with legendary talk show host Howard Stern. As of now, it does not appear that the other platforms had any issue with the collaborators spoofing.

Neither Drake nor 21 have responded publicly to the lawsuit.
