Rap superstar Drake has found himself in the news yet again after Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown revealed she has struck up an unlikely friendship with him.
Millie Brown, 14, first met Canadian Drake, 31, when he attended the Brisbane Supernova Convention she was appearing in last year.
Since then, the two have kept in touch, as she revealed a rather shocking detail on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards
“I love him … he’s honestly so fantastic. A great friend and a great role model,” she told reporters during a red carpet interview with Access Hollywood.
“We text. We just texted the other day and he was like, ‘I miss you so much!’ and I was like ‘I miss you more!’“
Asked what advice the rapper gives her, she said: “About boys. He helps me. He’s great.” Pressed for the advice, she demurred: “That stays in the text messages.”
Brown and Drake won’t miss each other for much longer as she said they had plans to catch up when his current US tour finishes in her home city of Atlanta in November. “I’m definitely going to go and see him … I’m so excited,” she said.
Unsurprisingly, many on social media have questions about Drake sending texts to a 14-year-old girl declaring that he misses her “so much”:
Ummm, If she isn’t your little sister or daughter, I can’t think of too many reasons a man north of 30 should be texting a teenager. https://t.co/G08znWT7dA

It is absolutely creepy af that Drake, 32 years old, gives "advice on boys" to Millie Bobby Brown.
She is 14.
Am I taking crazy pills? In what world is this even remotely okay?

31 year old Drake dating 18 year old Bella Harris makes his close friendship with Millie Bobby Brown less cute and more creepy.

Brown’s revelation comes a week after Drake made headlines when it was reported he has a new girlfriend, 18-year-old model Bella Harris.
However, both Drake and Harris have denied the rumours they are dating.
Fingers crossed on this one…
