Drake and Brown’s unlikely friendship first made headlines in September 2018 when the Netflix star revealed the “In My Feelings” rapper texts her.

Brown told “Access Hollywood” during a red carpet interview at the time that Drake would tell her that he “misses her” and also shared “advice about boys.” She was 14 time at the time and he was 30.

People on social media remarked how strange it was for the pair to be buddies given their nearly 18-year age gap.

One person tweeted, “that’s just weird. why he giving peoples young ass kids dating advice. that’s just sus! why is he even texting with her to begin with lol.”

Another agreed, “Doesn’t anyone find it odd he’s texting a kid?”

However, Brown defended the friendship in a post on her Instagram Story soon after the backlash.

She wrote, “Why u gotta make a lovely friendship ur headline? U guys are weird… For real. I’m lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance.”A screenshot of Millie Bobby Brown's post in defense of her friendship with Drake.

The actress concluded, “I’m very blessed to have amazing people in my life. U dont get to chose that for me. it’s nice to have people understand what I do. Now get back to talking about real problems in the world other than my friendships… jeez.”

Brown is currently dating Jon Bon Jovi’s son Jake Bongiovi, with whom she celebrated her 18th birthday with a throwback-themed party.
