Drake is fiercely private about his personal life. Like many celebrities, he does his best to keep his name out of the tabloids. While it’s a great move on his part, it makes it hard for his fans to keep up with his relationship status! Not to mention, being the ladies man Drake is, photographers often spot him with a “candy” on his arm. This sets up an environment that encourages tons of rumors.
Oh, and the Canadian rapper also likes to allude to the women on his mind in his tracks. That makes discerning his relationship history even harder! In this article, we’ll be shining a light on the women who have reportedly caught Drake’s eye over the years.

Rihanna and Drake had quite a few collabs together between 2010 and 2018. With them turning up the heat in music videos, it’s no surprise that word on the grapevine was that the two were involved. No one knows exactly what went on between them but what fans do know is that they were involved romantically at some point. They were your typical off-again on-again couple.
While on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in 2013, Drake has said that the two “had their moment.” That “moment” lasted quite a few years — long enough for Drake to declare his love for the Work singer during the 2016 VMAs. To say it was awkward, doesn’t even begin to cover it. Perhaps that’s why Rihanna confirmed last year that the two are no longer linked romantically, or even platonically at this point.
DeGeneres took a no holds barred approach when chatting Drake up about his luck with the ladies. She flashed Tyra Banks on the screen and Drake mumbled “geez” before admitting that the two had gone out on a date at some point. The famous pair decided to do Disney for their first and only date. Considering their fame and fortune, they opted to go in disguise! Needless to say, both parties had a blast, just not enough of one to go for another round.
The Fenty queen and America’s Top Model pioneer aren’t the only women Drake brought up during his time with DeGeneres. The God’s Plan rapper also spilled the beans about his feelings about Kat Dennings. While the two never “went out,” Denning’s entertained Drake’s crush and allowed him the opportunity to take her out on a date. Sure, they probably had a fantastic time, but the two never took things to the next level.
Jennifer Lopez and Drake’s relationship was the polar opposite of him and Rihanna’s. It was a short-lived whirlwind romance that only last two months. Still and all, the pair was quick to make things Instagram official! They both posted the pic you see above once the rumors around their bond began taking hold. This was around Christmas in 2016. Just a few months before she moved on with slugger (and current beau) Alex Rodriguez.
If you follow Drake, you’ve probably heard the name Sophie Brussaux before. Unlike the other women on this list, Brussaux and Drake have a pretty permanent connection — a son. Early on in 2017, Brussaux and Drake were spotted dining at an eatery in Amsterdam. That same year the French artist and former adult star told TMZ she was pregnant, possibly with Drake’s kid.
“If it is in fact Drake’s child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child” – Drake’s rep
Pusha T also got in on the ground floor far of the shenanigans, using the opportunity to call the competition out in his diss track. Ultimately Drake confirmed that he was the father of the boy, Adonis, in the song March 14.
“They said that in two weeks you’re supposed to come in town/Hopefully … Me and your mother will have come around/Instead of always cuttin’ each other down.” – Drake (March 14)
Not me!!!♀️that’s disrespectful. WHY CANT PPL BE FRIENDS W/o all the insinuation

Back in October 2017, rumor had it that the rapper was locking lips with model Bella Hadid. The lines on his album, Scorpion, are what fueled the fire. “Fashion weeks is more your thing than mine” and “You stay on my mind/You and your sister too hot to handle.” alongside him mentioning her father on the song Sandra Rose really got people talking. When a Twitter user tweeted about a possible hook up, Hadid immediately shot the rumors down.
Is Drake dating anyone now?
The women on this list are just the tip of the iceberg. Drake’s name has also come up with tons of models including Zmeena, Malaika Terry, Lateysha Grace aka Raye, India Love, and Crystal Westbrooks and more!
But what about now? Rumor has it, his most recently lady love was another Bella, 18-year-old model Bella Harris. A more in-depth look shows that their relationship has been “debunked,” but other sources also provide some pretty convincing arguments in favor of their failed relationship. No matter which side you’re one, there’s one thing that’s true. Drake is currently on the market for a new bae.
