Drake is facing backlash from people on the Internet after Los Angeles-based singer Billie Eilish made the claim that Drizzy texts her. The 17-year-old singer explained to Vanity Fair during her ‘Same Interview, One Year Apart’ take that she and Drake, 33, text each other often and that they’re friends.
“Drake is like the nicest dude I’ve ever spoken to. I mean, I’ve only like texted him, but he’s so nice…Like, he does not need to be nice, you know what I mean? He’s at a level in his life where he doesn’t need to be nice, but he is, you know?”
Considering that Drake is nearly double Eilish’s age some people are finding the notion of Drake taxing the girl “creepy.”
Just thinking about Billie Eilish saying she dresses in baggy clothes to avoid being sexualised and then revealing Drake is texting her. It's almost as if it doesn't matter how we dress or present ourselves, men will always prey on young women.

Billie Eilish just said in her vanity fair video that Drake is the nicest person ever and she has only talked to him through text. I am sorry but after news came out a while ago that 33 year old drake was texting 14 year old Millie Bobby Brown, this is creepy as hell.

This comes after Drake found himself at the centre of controversy last year following then 14-year-old actress Millie Bobby Brown claiming to shave a friendship with the rapper. Millie defended their friendship and further stated the two text one another “I mis you” and how Drizzy gives her love advice.
