Before you fear there is some freaky R. Kelly thing going on between Drake and Millie Bobby Brown, know that the rapper and the actress are just good friends.
Alarms went off on social media after it was revealed that Drake and Brown were exchanging texts and that the rapper was even advising the Stranger Things actress on her love life. Brown, however, wasted no time in setting the record straight, heading to Instagram Stories to call out the haters.
Rumors were running wild after Brown was asked about Drake on the red carpet at the Emmys. She described him as "a great friend and a great role model." Adding that they had just texted each other a few days before with Drake writing, “I miss you so much,” to which she responded, “I miss you more."
In Brown’s words, Drake gives her advice on her love life. "He helps me. Yeah, yeah, yeah. He’s great. He’s wonderful. I love him," she said. Social media, of course, was quick to point out that these new besties are not the same age, as Drake is 31 and Millie is 14. Millie, however, had no patience for people questioning her relationship with the Canadian hip-hop star.
"Why u gotta make a lovely friendship ur headline? U guys are weird… for real," she wrote. "I'm lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance. I'm very blessed to have amazing people in my life. U don't get to choose that for me. It's nice to have people who understand what I do. Now get back to talking about real problems in this world other than my friendships… jeez."
She also thanked her fans, writing "To all the supporters: I love you guys. Thank you for supporting me. Many thanks to u guys. Sending my love to wherever u are in the world."
There is an obvious connection between the two though. Drake is not simply the smooth Hotline Bling singer. He was also a child actor, starring in the Canadian teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation at 15. The rapper may feel like an older brother to Brown who is also dealing with sudden fame and celebrity.

Also, Drake is reportedly dating 18-year-old model Bella Harris with whom he shared a private dinner in Washington DC last week. Granted, Harris is only four years older than Brown, but she is an adult, having graduated from high school in June. She has already starred in campaigns for Calvin Klein, Guess and Forever 21. She has been romantically linked to Drake since last month.
Brown, meanwhile, recently broke up with 15-year-old singer Jacob Sartorius, who in all fairness looks like he’s 10.
