Drake has asked authorities to drop their case against a fan who allegedly broke into his home and enjoyed some of his beverages.

Mesha Collins, 24, was discovered inside the rapper's Hidden Hills mansion in California earlier this month (Apr17) by a member of his entourage. Collins was reportedly found in one of the bedrooms wearing one of Drake's hoodies and surrounded by opened water and soda bottles taken from inside his house. There was no evidence she took anything else or caused any damage.

After a member of Drake's team called police, Collins was arrested for entering a residence with intent to steal the victim's personal property and held on bail of $100,000 (£78,000) until a hearing on Wednesday (19Apr17), reported the Associated Press.

However, it seems Drake is not looking to punish the intruder and wants the case dropped. According to TMZ.com, the singer's lawyer has contacted the Los Angeles County District Attorney and stated that the rapper won't cooperate with the prosecution against her.

The 30-year-old is concerned Collins has mental health issues and feels it would unfair to convict her over the incident when nobody was hurt and very little was taken.

It is unlikely the DA will forge ahead with prosecution without Drake's support, TMZ reports.
