Drake‘s musical genius and rap career might have gotten him famous, but his fan base knows him for more than those aspects.

Over the years, the rapper has had a slew of romantic interests. The star is often spotted with several women arm in arm and claims they are friends. He even had a short-lived relationship with model Dollicia Bryan. However, the relationship came to an abrupt end over one minor disagreement.

Drake has been linked to various high-profile names in the past

Celebrities are usually the talk of the town, and their relationships often make for hit gossip. Drake is one of those celebrities who frequently has found his name in the tabloids, with many speculating and associating him with various women.

Over the years, the ‘Toosie Slide’ rapper has been associated with tennis player Serena Williams, actor Zoe Kravitz, and Bella Hadid. However, most of the women Drake has been linked to have referred to him as “a friend” or “family.” Hadid even called out a fan for being “disrespectful” and thinking people can’t be “friends without all the insinuation.”

Although most of the women in his life prefer to throw the label friends when with him, the closest relationship the 33-year-old has come closer to was with singer Rihanna. The duo’s relationship has since changed over the years as Rihanna said in an interview that she and Drake don’t have a friendship but aren’t enemies either. The rapper has also been romantically linked to Kat Dennings, Kylie Jenner, and Tyra Banks.

Drake also shares a child with French artist Sophie Brussaux. The rapper gave fans a first-hand look at his son Adonis via Instagram. Drake mentioned that he never came clean about his son earlier because he wanted to be sure he was the father. However, it seems the star has fully embraced the child as he has been spotted with him frequently.

Bryan and Drake had a romantic relationship in 2011. Before her involvement with Drake, Bryan had been linked to Rob Kardashian, rapper Bow Wow, 50 Cent, Reggie Bush, Hill Harper, and a few others. Her rep confirmed that both Bryan and Drake had been spending the holidays together.

The couple met at Bryan’s birthday party, who was in a relationship with Harper. The rapper had stopped by the party because his DJ was at the event. Rumors of them dating were fueled by his post about Bryan in his Instagram account when they visited Saddle Ranch restaurant.

Shortly after Bryan and Drake became the hot topic in town, they broke up. Reports stated that the 33-year-old rapper had taken his ex-girlfriend Nebby to his performance in NYC Square. This came just days after Bryan and Drake had confirmed their relationship.

Nebby was supposedly the singer’s muse for the song ‘Best I Ever Had’ and the rapper’s self-proclaimed ‘first love.’ The move on Drake’s part to bring Nebby to his concert brought about a lot of speculation. Fans wondered what happened between him and Bryan for him to cozy up to his ex-girlfriend so soon. As it turns out, the breakup came after he and Bryan had a big fight right before he left for NYC.

The YBF reports that the fight was about colored contacts. As crazy as this sounds, the site continues to note that the duo had been dining at Villa Blanca in Los Angeles when Bryan supposedly mentioned that she didn’t think hazel-colored contacts were a good look for the Canadian rapper. He got upset and offended, and the argument escalated for the worst before Bryan got up and left. Drake followed suit later on.
