Drake, 33, has a texting friendship with yet another underage girl, Billie Eilish

Los Angeles Premiere of the new HBO Series EUPHORIA

Last year, we heard a gross story about how Drake, then 31 years old, closed out a restaurant so he could dine with an 18-year-old model named Bella Harris. That’s bad enough, but it turns out that Drake had been in this young model’s life for two years (at least), and they had posed for very “friendly” social media photos when she was just 16 years old. Around the same times – literally, the same week – a 14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown confirmed (yet again) that she texted and talked with Drake “all the time.” Millie described the relationship as a friendship where she could seek his advice, and she said “I love him” about Drake. I want to be clear – neither Millie nor Bella have said anything about Drake mistreating them or acting creepy. But I also want to be clear that the mere fact that a 30-something man is seeking out friendships with underage girls is a HUGE red flag.

Well, guess what? Drake has also been seeking out a friendship with Billie Eilish, who is only 17 years old. Billie did a video interview with Vanity Fair and she spoke how Drake texts her and “Drake, come on. Drake is like the nicest dude I’ve ever spoken to. I mean, I’ve only texted with him. Like, he’s so nice. He does not need to be nice…” Around the 1:45-mark of this video:

A lot of people are like “whoa whoa whoa, hold up.” It is a legit pattern. Billie, Millie and Bella and those are just the three we know about. Oh, and he’s possibly dealing with Kylie Jenner at the moment. Kylie is 22 years old… but he’s known her for many years. He’s known her since she was probably 14 or 15 years old. We all know Tyga was extremely creepy with Kylie when she was under-18, but my guess is that Drake was also texting her around that time too.

    When will they ever learn…

    • Ye says:

      The girls? Seriously? The most dumb inexperienced in this equation?

    • MariaS says:

      As long as they keep getting away with it, never.

    • MC2 says:

      The men have learned, that’s why they keep doing it & know they can get away with it. There is no “Whoops, I had no idea! I just never learned that underage girls were not okay?!”

      • Noely says:

        Yeah, as long as underage or barely legal girls are hyped as sex symbols, male old fart celebs parade their latest 19-year-old playthings around and Barely Legal is a popular category in porn movies why should men learn that hitting on young girls is not okay? Right now the world is telling them that young girls are the hottest shit.

      • MC2 says:

        @Noely: I agree & this idea that women are at their prime in their teens and twenties needs to live in the dustbin.

      • BellaBella says:

        @Noely, Although Billie Eilish is not someone who hypes up her sexuality. She wears the baggy clothes because she does not want hypersexualization to be part of her narrative.

  2. tempest prognosticator says:

    Drake needs to stop. Now.

  3. Michael says:

    I think he was also very friendly with Hailey Baldwin when she was underage. Grooming? Probably. I doubt he is texting any underage male celebrities or unattractive underage people.

  4. S808 says:

    I got my eye on drake and I don’t like what I’m seeing.

  5. SarSte says:

    As a true Drake Apologist, the wool is getting harder and harder to keep over my own eyes.

    • Erinn says:

      Yeaaaahhh. I mean, there’s a possibility he’s doing this because he was a child star, and god knows what that meant as far as how people treated him.

      I’d like to think this is him trying to be a sort of mentor, or someone for another child star to reach out to if someone pulled some shit with them.

      But I really don’t know. It’s strange.

      • wellsie says:

        The child actor thing crossed my mind, but does he ever reach out to young men?

      • ChillyWilly says:

        Yeah, why always girls if his intentions are pure? Seems like a pattern to me. I am sure Billie and MBB think they are grown and are thrilled a famous older man is showing them attention but they are still kids and Drake has no business texting them.

      • emmy says:

        That’s what people said about Michael Jackson. I mean sure, anything is possible but if it seems strange, it’s probably so much worse. Where is that one grown man who actually only wanted to mentor young girls? Mr Rogers? He sure as hell didn’t privately call them. Nobody else comes to mind. If Natalie Portman started texting 14 year old boys, we would all think it’s the most ridiculous thing but we look at teenage girls differently. It needs to stop.

        If that means the one guy, the unicorn, needs to stop texting underage girls despite it being harmless, I can live with that.

      • Joanna says:

        @Emmy, yes! 🙌🙌

      • lucy2 says:

        I’d be on board with this is he reached out to young men also, and just made the offer like “hey, I’ve been through this, if you ever need my advice, I’m here for you” and left it at that.
        But he’s only seeking out girls, and seems to be trying to develop something other than a mentor relationship.

      • SarSte says:

        Agree with what everyone is saying. It’s weird. On top of that, I think there is a growing list of other garbage that’s been piling up too that’s hard to ignore. Publicly professing love to Rihanna and awkwardly putting her on the spot. That whole situation/potential marketing scheme with his kid. The treatment of the mother of his child. Working with Chris Brown as recently as SUMMER 2019 (that was a true, true WHAT THE ACTUAL F in my books). I dunno man, it’s getting DIFFICULT to continue making excuses.

  6. Nicole says:

    There’s a “Drake texting Baby Yoda” meme

  7. Aims says:

    Inappropriate.

  8. Cee says:

    He is becoming quite problematic.

  9. Joanna says:

    I don’t like Drake. From what I understand he likes adult stars, had a baby with one and didn’t want to acknowledge his baby. I don’t have a problem with her being an adult star but guys that like them and strippers are bad men imo. I feel like Drake is one of guys who acts super nice but is the worst. Those are the most dangerous.

    • Michael says:

      You are very correct. Read some stories about how he gets away with murder in the L.A. Clubs and how his bodyguards act he is a mafia Don. Not a nice guy not a guy who pretends to be nice

  10. Sarah says:

    This is the R. Kelly story all over again. Obvious red flags and concerning behavior happening in broad daylight, yet no one does anything about it. We are talking about famous white girls this time around – I refuse to call them young women – so hopefully someone will act quicker than when Kelly was praying on black children.

    • TQ says:

      I was thinking the same thing about the similarity with R. Kelly. I suspect the texting is just scratching the surface of what’s really going on here.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      The “famous” aspect will be his defense in years to come too, “I never harmed those (famous) girls” but we should be asking how many non-famous underage girls he is talking with, the ones that don’t have access to a life he could promise them access to.

      • Sarah says:

        Twitter is full of stories about him reaching out to young fans who attend to attend concerts and such. It looks thoughtful and lovely, until you realise almost all the fans are underage and female…

    • Bo Peep says:

      We’re only recently hearing about what appears to be a pattern of grooming?, but it’s no secret that Drake has a long history of having sex with very young, barely legal women.

      He visited my university for the Sun God Festival back in 2010, and I remember thinking how sleazy it was that his staff picked all the pretty young girls from the mosh pit to dance on stage with him. His concert was still going on, he was still rapping, and we’d see our schoolmates fill the stage and dance along. During the concert he also picked out one girl onstage to give jewelry to and have her “show it off,” although I don’t know if this was his way of hyping the crowd. It probably served dual purposes.

      I heard the next day that his staff checked ID after his concert, and the ones who were 18+ and wanted to join his personal afterparty were invited to go. Of course, this example doesn’t involve grooming and he himself was only 24 then, but it appears that the age group he finds appropriate hasn’t changed. Yikes.

  11. Caty Page says:

    The girls will likely speak out in his defense, pointing out that nothing inappropriate has (yet) been said. People will then dismiss the issue without asking any further questions, ignoring the fact grooming is not normally seen as such by those experiencing it.

    This is very questionable behavior. It could be his genuine attempt at mentoring, but let’s see what young men he’s texting. ::crickets:: Oh, only young women? But I’m sure this is still very innocent.

    • horseandhound says:

      this is suspicious. but I do wonder what they talk about and whether he talks about anything remotely sexual with them.

  12. Jules says:

    He will get away with it until he’s in his 50s and it’s too late like all these other singers who get away with crap because they all nice guys really

  13. Cat Ca says:

    Creepy and wrong. There is zero part of me that believes his intentions are pure – he is definitely grooming them.
    No adult male seeks the company of children (that are not related to him).

  14. Mariettajones91 says:

    I don’t know what it is about Drake, but I’ve never been a fan. I never got all the hype about him. I like maybe two songs of his, or I should say can tolerate two songs.

    He’s always given off such a creeper vibe to me and now with these stories coming out about him texting underage girls… so glad now I never got into him! R Kelly vibes all the way. Ugh… YUCK!

  15. Nacho_friend says:

    And what if drake preferred men? Then would it be a problem? I think he’s just giggling and playing with makeup to be honest.,8 don’t get that vibe from him, but since I don’t know him…

    • MC2 says:

      That would be a nice cover, but Drake actually has a child with a woman & has been known to be with and have sex with women, so I doubt this is the case.

  16. Biff says:

    It’s not just Drake, though. The entertainment business is extremly youth obsessed and we’re all pretty acclimatised to it. In my opinion it is problematic, but these guys know that if they wait until the girl is legal before they’re seen together people will fall over themselves to defend them. I keep bringing up Leo as an example because his current relationship really creeped me out, as he is a man with a pattern of never having a girlfriend over the age of 25 who ends up with a girl he has known since she was around 10 years old. And most people don’t bat an eye.

  17. Charfromdarock says:

    It’s creepy even if his intentions are honorable.

  18. Aliyah says:

    This is becoming a creepy pattern. I wonder if Drake will bother saying something about it this time, or if he’ll leave it all up to the teen girl again?

  19. Mar says:

    He thinks he gets a pass because he was a child actor. It’s like his maturity level stopped growing when he was Jimmy in the wheelchair.

    I think he’s talented but he’s so far shoved up his own ass he gets on my damn nerves.

  20. SM says:

    And we all know about this only because these young girls told these stories because they feel like his attention is something extraordinary, from someone you look up to or consider to be fascinating and cool. And this how older creeps pray on young women and then do not understand that what they do is just wrong.

  21. Sparkle says:

    This is inappropriate. I am not saying he has done anything illegal…yet. But this very problematic. Her parents need to step in. Just because their kid is famous doesnt mean they get to stop parenting. Look how well that turned out for Justin Beiber.

  22. bub244 says:

    This is concerning. I agree with a poster upthread – my concern isn’t with Millie and Billie (!), but with the other non-famous young girls who may be getting messages from Drake and who we’ll never hear about.

    • Sparkle says:

      Great point about possible non-famous girls being targeted by Drake. While its not illegal, he is engaging in red-flag behavior. I don’t think this story will end nicely for him or these girls.

      I can always count on a Celebitchy reader to point out a perspective I haven’t considered before. Thanks Bub

  23. JoJo says:

    I’m curious if anyone would be creeped out if Rihanna texted these girls or a celebrity teenage boy?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      If Rihanna was texting with younger female stars who are underage, I think MOST people would assume that she was, in fact, acting as a mentor. a female star who we all know has been through an abusive relationship AND became famous at a fairly young age, offering advice to OTHER young stars, wouldn’t raise eyebrows. it would make sense.

      however, if she were texting teenage boys, and ONLY teenage boys, then yeah, I think we’d be creeped out.

      was your question supposed to be some sort of double-standard defense of Drake?

    • Mtec says:

      @Jojo
      This is a false equivalency. Yes women can be predators too. But there is more precedent for an adult female to mentor and an underage/younger girl thant there is for an adult male to do so. Life experiences, societal pressures, trying to navigate gender discrimination and harassment in life and the workplace; it’s more than likely an adult woman would have had similar experiences with a young girl, where the mentor can give actual nuanced and helpful advice specifically from the female perspective. A 30yr-old man who is on top of that unrelated, and not comprehensively aware/or in-tune to the female experience just cannot provide that kind of guidance. And on top of that, if it’s someone like Drake where people are starting to notice a pattern with his affinity to focus on providing this service to young girls, it’s very suspect.

      If we take your hypothetical and say Rihanna started centering on young, underage boys in the same way, I’d definitely side-eye that too.

    • Ange says:

      If Rihanna was texting teenage girls it’d be to warn them away from Drake. Come on now.

  24. Noely says:

    I’m sure the girls don’t think this is a big deal since they live in a work environment where they are surrounded by adults and their life is very different from the average teenager so they probably don’t even realize that it’s kinda creepy that a 33-year old is texting them. And Drake probably thinks it’s normal too because these girls are flattered by the attention.

    Bottom line is, it sucks that men finding underage girls attractive and approaching them under the guise of “giving them advice” or whatever is so normalized. I don’t blame the girls for being flattered. I blame him for specifically going after young and impressionable girls.

  25. No Doubt says:

    I think Drake is mentally stuck at 18, but still, he should know better than to befriend such young girls. His intentions may be innocent, but it doesn’t look good.

  26. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    Another problematic side to it is that other young people read about this behavior between a 30s person and teen and then think it’s acceptable or even “cool.” Like are young girls out there going to start thinking it’s a cool thing to “date” someone way older while they are still in jr high and HS? And will 30somethings start thinking it’s publicly acceptable to be dating teens? This is all very disturbing and disappointing. His behavior should be looked into.
