Details of Drake’s Girlfriends and Past Relationships: A Look at All The Women The Rapper Dated
You may be able to count the number of men that have dated more women than Drake. It has gotten so not surprising that any woman he is seen with, no matter the age, is considered as either his girlfriend or the next in line. Drake has dated more women in less than 10 years than many other men would get to date even if they are unlucky to return to this earth for a second and third time.
What makes his dating history very interesting is that his real and rumoured list has almost every woman from almost every field and age bracket. Drake’s relationship menu has people like Keshia Chanté, Tyra Banks, Nicki Minaj, Blac Chyna and even others like Rita Ora, Serena Williams, and Jennifer Lopez. Even though some of these relationships have generated media interest, it was his relationship with Rihanna that somehow stood out. To find out more about not only the rapper’s relationship with Rihanna but also some of his other ex-girlfriends/rumoured exes keep reading.
In February 2020 there were reports that Drake was in a romantic relationship with a Dutch Moroccan Victoria’s Secret model named Imaan Hammam. The star was seen arm in arm with the supermodel, who is an Amsterdam native, during New York’s Fashion Week that February. On Wednesday, 5th of the same month, he was sighted leaving the model’s apartment in New York City carrying two bags not long after Imaan had left her home alone. This stirred up relationship rumors
The following Friday, Imaan launched her capsule collection named Imaan x Frame with the luxury lifestyle apparel brand Frame, and at the launch dinner party, Drake was present, sitting with Imaan. The duo was beyond excited to be pictured together as Drake held the model’s waist lovingly while giving his best smiles for photos. Later on, they attended the Nike fashion show as a pair prior to reportedly being seen sharing a kiss at Fleur Room.
Apart from attending events together and spending time at Imaan’s house, Drake also likes her posts on Instagram.
The latest of Drake’s ex-girlfriends is allegedly Bella Harris, a young model who recently graduated from high school, according to a photo she posted on her Instagram on the 12th of June 2018 with the caption, “peace out high school…here’s to new beginnings and new adventures.” Bella signed a modelling deal with Elite New York City agency in 2018 and in addition to being known for her work as a model, she is also known for her family’s connection to some top Hollywood celebrities.
The young model is the daughter of James Samuel “Jimmy Jam” Harris III, a music legend of the 1980’s popular for his R&B/pop songwriting and record production career with Terry Steven Lewis. One of the most famous artists they worked with was Janet Jackson, who eventually became Bella’s godmother. Miss Harris has two brothers- a twin brother named Max and an older brother named Tyler. While the young lady and her big brother are working in the modelling industry, her twin is currently trying to build a career in the music industry.
Probably because the Harris family is involved in the music industry, Bella has known Drake since 2016 or even earlier. Following the musician’s wins at the American Music Awards in 2016, the model posted a picture on social media, with a congratulatory message to him. Also in the same year, she shared a photo of herself and Drake during his 2016 Summer Sixteen tour with Future.
However, Bella was not romantically connected to Drake, who is 13 years her senior, until 2018 when she posted a picture of them getting cozy backstage at Drake’s concert at Madison Square Garden and captioned it, “No place I’d rather be,” adding a blue heart emoji. The rapper, who follows Harris, liked the post. Sadly, they eventually parted ways shortly after.
Drake was also said to be dating model Malaika Terry in 2018. According to the model’s social media accounts, she was born in March 1996 and is of Jamaican and Irish descent. Popular for showing off her bikini pictures to her fans, the beauty is followed by more than 154,000 on Instagram.
Malaika and Drake were both spotted in Toronto, Drake’s hometown, in May 2018 when they visited Cafe Nervosa accompanied by bodyguards. According to a publication by MTO News, a source close to the singer revealed that he planned on settling down with Malaika and that he had even shown her to his mom. However, the relationship drowned like the others before it.

Sophie later delivered a son nine months after being spotted with Drake, precisely on the 24th of October 2018, which coincidentally, is also the rapper birthday. Following a paternity test after the child’s birth, the hip-hop star eventually confirmed that he fathered him on June 29, 2018.

Just a few days before it was reported that Drake was wooing Lateysha, news emerged that he was dating the British singer, Rye. A music insider reportedly told the The Sun Online that Rye, who is a very big fan of Drake’s, reached out to him on Twitter concerning one of her songs and amazed at her songwriting talent, he decided to record with her.

In 1997, she landed her first leading role in Selena biopic of the same name, earning a pay of more than US$1 million for her role. She went on to star in other blockbuster movies through which she earned enough money that established her as the Latin actress with the highest pay in Hollywood.
Having inked her name among the big shots in America’s acting industry, J.Lo moved into the music industry, releasing her debut album On the 6 in 1999 and following it up with the release of other albums. Thanks to her continued success in the entertainment business, Lopez amassed enough money to establish various businesses, including fragrances, clothing lines, and the production company known as Nuyorican Productions, among others.
Being a celebrity, it is nothing strange for the actress to mingle with other A-list celebrities like her. The list of J.Lo’s boyfriends is an endless one but among the men she has been linked to, her relationship with Drake was one that got people talking. The duo allegedly became an item around Christmas 2016 and Jennifer was present to support Drake at his New Year’s Eve show in Las Vegas. The female singer subsequently confirmed their speculated romance, sort of, by sharing a photo of them cuddling on her Instagram page. Unfortunately, the couple was not together for to long as they parted ways in February 2017 as a result of their tight schedules.
Occupation: Tennis Player
Our favorite Toronto-born rapper was spotted on different occasions watching Serena Williams play tennis. He was seen the first time in 2011 and then at several other times through 2015. Serena also made an appearance in Trey’s Songz’ video of Bottom’s Up, which was shot in Drake’s condo, according to reports, while Drake casually mentioned the athlete’s name in the lyrics of his song, Worst Behaviour. In all these, neither of the pair ever confirmed their relationship but a proof that they were an item eventually surfaced when TMZ released pictures of them kissing at a restaurant in Cincinnati.
Drake and Rihanna were first said to be a pair in 2009. Even though Drake was clear about what he felt for Rihanna, she never appeared to be on the same page with him. In the years that followed, the two left fans confused as to the nature of their relationship. They would be spotted flirting with one another, Drake would confess his love her and rumors will start swirling that they were romantically involved, but Riri would promptly shut it down by saying that they were nothing but friends. They would be caught up being flirtatious once again and the cycle kept ongoing.
Although Rihanna has never agreed to being in a relationship with Drake, a source told E! News in 2016 that the stars were dating at the time. That was probably when they reportedly got matching tattoos. Their relationship, however, was short-lived as the female singer went back to acting single a few months later. Whatever the case, the rapper has pledged to always love and support her.
