The media outlet also published a text conversation where the rapper was alleged to have asked her to terminate her pregnancy, which she declined to do.

Representatives for the rapper denied that he had fathered a child with the former actress in a statement that was given to TMZ.

They notably stated that ‘this woman has a very questionable background. She has admitted to having multiple relationships…She’s one of many women claiming he got them pregnant.’

They added: ‘If it is in fact Drake’s child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child.’

The controversy was further exacerbated by the release of Pusha T’s diss track The Story of Adidon in 2018.

The rapper alleged that the hitmaker had deliberately hidden his son from the public and notably mentioned Brussaux by name.

Drake initially remained silent about the rumors, although he later confirmed that he was Adonis’ father on several tracks from his 2018 album Scorpion.
