Rapper Drake has been sued by a stylist over an alleged unpaid $76,000 bill.

Michael Raphael claims he began working for the Started From the Bottom hitmaker in August, 2012 and consulted on his style, clothing and graphic design choices at Drake’s company OVO, according to TMZ.com.

Raphael alleges he spent thousands of dollars at numerous clothing and shoe stores, including Nike and Diesel, on the rapper’s behalf – but has not been reimbursed. He also racked up travel and hotel costs.

The stylist is claiming Drake suddenly stopped paying for his services in December – a month when Raphael spent $40,000 in shopping and other expenses on top of his salary.

The stylist has reportedly included the receipts for purchases with his legal documents.
