Drake has dominated 2018. He has had the #1 song in the country almost every week since the year began, his album went platinum shortly after its release, and he’s a free agent in the apparel game and is likely to command a massive contract. But this past week has been rough for Aubrey.
Initially, earlier in September, a report came out that Drake was dating model Bella Harris. This normally wouldn’t be an issue… but she’s 18. And Drake is 31. So twitter, Instagram, and other social media sites took the story and went crazy with the memes and the slander. After a few days, it was revealed the story was fake, and that the two weren’t dating. It seemed Drake was out of the woods. However, some damage had already been done. This, again, shows how social media can take a fake story and take it as fact and spread it to millions.
But then, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown discussed how she and Drake had a strong friendship, that they talked about relationships, personal matters, and that they often texted each other how they missed each other. Once again, social media sites became filled with memes and people questioning what Drake’s issue was, discussing such things with a 14-year-old woman. MBB then came out on Instagram and shamed people for making their friendship creepy, and that it was an innocent friendship. But again, the damage had been done, and many accused Drake of grooming MBB.
Do you think it’s okay for Drake to have a friendship like this with MBB? I think it’s alright, assuming they have a bigger sibling type relationship, where Drake can discuss/help MBB with life, as he can relate to her as he was also a child actor. However, I definitely get why some people found it creepy initially.
