Folks are super bothered by the idea that Drake, 31, has a texting friendship with Stranger Things actress, Millie Bobby Brown.
Everything popped off on Monday night after Brown, 14, revealed she speaks with Drake from time to time during a red carpet interview ahead of the Emmys.
“I met him in Australia, and he’s honestly so fantastic — a great friend and a great role model,” she said. “We just texted each other the other day, and he was like, ‘I miss you so much,’ and I was like, ‘I miss you more.’”
this guy… ❤️

A photo of the two meeting for the first time went viral last year.
She continued, sharing that the “In My Feelings” rapper also gives her dating advice from time to time.
“He helps me,” she said. “Yeah, yeah, yeah. He’s great. He’s wonderful. I love him.”
After people weighed in on the situation, Brown used her Instastories to defend the friendship.
“Why u gotta make a lovely friendship your headline? U guys r weird…for reaI, 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 understand what I do. Now get back to talking about real problems in this world other than friendships…jeez.
And Millie’s response is exactly what would be expected because she is in fact 14-years-old.
Social media had a series of questions, primarily for the adult in the situation, which would be Drake. People needed to understand what a 31-year-old man and a teen girl have in common.
