A Guide to Drake's Dating History, Including What Seems to Be a Budding New Romance
Contrary to popular belief, Drake hasn't been in many relationships. While the artist loves love, he jokingly explained on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2013 that he goes on a lot of first dates. "They don't call me back after one date!" he laughed after confirming that the relationship rumors surrounding him and Tyra Banks were just that — rumors. The same goes for him and Kat Dennings: "We went out for dinner, but that was it."
Of course, true Drake fans may not be surprised to learn this. He did, after all, spend close to a decade trying to woo Rihanna — TBT to the 2016 VMAs. Then there was that one time in 2018 when Drake asked Heidi Klum out on a date and she ghosted him. "Sorry, Drake. You snooze, you lose. You know what I mean? He was basically like a week too late," Klum told Ellen DeGeneres of meeting her now-husband days before Drake reached out.
It's been a few years since Drake has confirmed or even hinted that he's in a serious relationship. However, the — apparently lavish — dates haven't stopped. This month, Drake was spotted having a private dinner with model Johanna Leia at Dodger Stadium. (The organization confirmed to ABC7 that Drake made "a sizable donation" to the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation in order to make the date happen.) Could this be the next chapter in Drake's dating history? It's too soon to say — so, for now, let's take a look back at who else the rapper has been linked to over the years.
