Looking good definitely comes at a price, and according to TMZ, that price for Drake is almost $80,000 a month.

The rapper’s former stylist, Michael Raphael, is suing him for $76,490 for unpaid expenses for the month of December 2012. Raphael claims that Drake paid all of his bills monthly from August to November, but then suddenly stopped paying in December, a month that he racked up the largest sum of money.

According to the lawsuit, Drake hired Raphael in August 2012 for consulting services at a monthly rate of $39,583, which included styling, clothing and graphic design for Drake’s OVO fashion company, brand direction, photography, and more.

In addition to his monthly salary, Raphael also coughed up almost $40,000 in shopping expenses, hotel bills, plane tickets, and other travel costs.

Raphael is now suing Drake for the full amount. As of publication, Drake has not commented.
