Billie Eilish Defends Friendship with Drake, Slams Rumors That He’s ‘Grooming’ Her

*Drake has a reputation on these streets of having a thing for underage girls.

The 33-year-old singer fuels these rumors by making headlines with teenage starlets, such as actress Millie Bobby Brown, whom he was caught up in a texting scandal with a couple of years ago when she was 14. He was said to be dating an 18-year-old model at the time.

There was also that disturbing video of Drake kissing and groping an underage girl on stage at one of his concerts.

There are even whispers that he groomed wannabe model Hailey Baldwin before she married Justin Bieber.

Most recently, Grammy-winner Billie Eilish has come to his defense after Drake was criticized over his relationship with the 18-year-old singer.

Speaking to Vogue for their March 2020 issue, Eilish discussed her friendship with the rapper, who is 15 years her senior.

“The internet is such a stupid-ass mess right now,” she shared. “Everybody’s so sensitive. A grown man can’t be a fan of an artist?”

Despite fan speculation that Drake is grooming the Los Angeles native, Eilish went on to say, “There are so many people that the internet should be more worried about. Like, you’re really going to say that Drake is creepy because he’s a fan of mine, and then you’re going to go vote for Trump? What the f— is that s—?”

Drake caught heat last November when Eilish initially revealed that the two often text one another.

At the time, she described him as “the nicest dude I have ever spoken to.”

Eilish compared the backlash she received over their friendship to the same level of hate Drake was hit with for giving “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown dating advice. 

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Brown called him “a great friend and a great role model.”

She even revealed that “just the other day” she and Drake texted each other saying they miss one another.

Twitter user @Zeitwes noted at the time, “Drake is OBVIOUSLY grooming Millie Bobby Brown.. no 30-something year old man should be in a 14 year old girls text messages giving her… “dating advice” “

Another user added, “Now that I think about it, didn’t Drake used to hang out with Kylie and Kendall when they were underage and it came out that he was smashing one of them? Get him away from Millie Bobby Brown.

Do you think Drake is really out here grooming these underage stars? Sound off in the comments below.
