A new story claiming Nicki Minaj âthinks Drake could have more than one secret love childâ is fake news. The phony report, complete with seemingly made-up quotations, was manufactured by HollywoodLife, a site so well-known for fabricating articles thatâs itâs often referred to a âHollywoodLies.â Conversely, Gossip Cop fact-checks and reaches out to various parties to get to the truth, and weâve learned the article is untrue.
According to the latest cooked-up tale from the serial fibbers at HollywoodLies, Minaj is ânot surprisedâ about the rumors that Drake fathered a child with adult film star Sophie Brussaux and âthinks there may be other baby mamas out there.â The often discredited outlet quotes what it alleges is a âsource close to Nickiâ as saying, â[Minaj] wouldnât be surprised if Drakeâs got more than once secret love child out there. Heâs such a huge player.â The seemingly bogus âsourceâ adds that Minaj is ârelievedâ sheâs not involved with Drake anymore.
From there, the article notes how Drake has been âromantically linked to many other singers such as Rihanna and even Jennifer Lopez.â While thatâs mostly factual, itâs completely irrelevant. Heâs never had nor ever been rumored to have had kids with either of those two women.
HollywoodLies simply made up its latest article to capitalize on all the talk about Drake possibly having a son named Adonis with Brussaux. It was first reported that the rapper impregnated Brussaux back in May 2017. The claim about him now having a love child resurfaced because Drake and Pusha T are in a feud, with the latter releasing as song called âStory Of Adidon.â The track features lyrics that seem to call Drake a âdeadbeatâ dad and implores him to âlove that babyâ and to ârespectâ his alleged childâs mother. Actually, itâs being reported that Drake has been quietly supporting the baby since his birth.
Unlike HollywoodLies, which canât even prove its supposed âsourceâ is real, Minajâs rep, who acts on her behalf, tells Gossip Cop exclusively that HollywoodLifeâs story is âfake news as usual.â The spokesperson, who has had to contend with other fabricated reports from that site, further rhetorically asked, âHow are they in business?â As for Drake, his people would not comment when contacted by Gossip Cop.
It should also be noted that HollywoodLies has for a long time falsely maintained that Minaj and Drake were hooking up. The truth, however, is that Drake and Minaj have been just friends and collaborators. They have never been a couple. Comically, the same day the site floated that false claim it also wrongly reported that Minaj was pregnant with Nasâs baby.
Of course, if HollywoodLies truly had a âsource close to Nicki,â it would have known sheâs never dated Drake and was never pregnant with Nasâs child. The site is either flat-out lying about having an insider or is easily being duped by a fraud whoâs able to tell them anything, and theyâll print it without fact-checking. Also, the outlet never attempted to contact Minajâs side to see if the quotes from its alleged âsourceâ bore any resemblance to the truth.
Conclusion: HollywoodLies offers no transparent proof that an actual Minaj confidante shared information with the unreliable outlet that she âwouldnât be surprised if Drakeâs got more than once secret love child out there.â Additionally, the article contains inaccurate information about her having dated Drake and has a track record of being wrong about her. All that, plus Minajâs spokesperson openly calling the siteâs report âfake newsâ has led us to give the story a 0.
