People have been creeped out by Millie Bobby Brown and Drake's friendship for years. He just responded.

Hollywood is full of unlikely friendships.

We don't know what Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg would talk about over coffee, but the two have been great friends for years, and even host a cooking show together.

One unlikely Hollywood friendship people have… mixed feelings… about that of Drake and Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown. 

For five years, people have commented on the strangeness of their relationship and Drake has finally acknowledged it in a new song 'Another Late Night'.

"Weirdos in my comments talkin' 'bout some Millie Bobby, look," he raps in a verse on the song. "Bring them jokes up to the gang, we get to really flockin' / Or send a finger to your mama in some FedEx boxes / Open up that s**t, it's jaw droppin', really shockin'."

For anyone confused, he's saying that speculation about the nature of their friendship is absurd and using Mafia-threatening techniques like sending body parts as a threat towards those who do it.

But, wait, what's the history with Millie Bobby Brown?

In July 2018, Brown told W Magazine they met when Drake invited her to his concert when they were both in Australia. 

A then-14-year-old Brown then spoke about him on the red carpet of the 2018 Emmys a couple of months later.

"I love him," she told Access Hollywood.

But that wasn't what people found to be the weird part.

"I met him in Australia, and he's honestly so fantastic — a great friend and a great role model," she said of the then-31-year old rapper.

"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.'" 


Okay, getting weirder…

"(He gives me advice) about boys."

Um. What?

Drake gives Millie Bobby Brown advice about boys.

If we cast our minds back to age 14 we'll recall that any type of boy advice was wholeheartedly welcomed (actually, it still is), but many people thought a man in his 30s texting a teenage girl about boys is, um, a little bit creepy.

In fact, people were straight-up outraged – and have thrown around words like "troubling", "disturbing", "creepy" and even "predatory" over a number of years.

This then caused even further scrutiny a year later when Billie Eilish, then 17, revealed that she and Drake were also friends.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Eilish said Drake was "the nicest dude I've ever spoken to".

"The internet is such a stupid-a – mess right now. Everybody's so sensitive," Eilish later told Vogue, reflecting on the backlash it caused. "A grown man can't be a fan of an artist? There are so many people that the internet should be more worried about."

What makes this stranger is that in the same song as the Brown mention, Drake's collaborator Lil Yachty namedrops Eilish too... in a pretty gross way.

"I let her go, she fine as hell but baby wasn't stylish, she had big tits like Billie Eilish but she couldn't sing."


The verse in 'Another Late Night' is the first time Drake has addressed the negative comments and unsurprisingly, it hasn't gone down particularly well.
