It's been a little over a year since we found out that Drake and now 15-year-old Millie Bobby Brown are texting pals and people weren't happy with the 18-year age difference. Despite the fact that Brown clarified that it's just a platonic friendship, the Canadian rapper was still called out on his behaviour. Now he's under fire again because it was just revealed that Drake and Billie Eilish text each other and fans are disappointed in him.
Eilish revealed the fact that Drake is one of the most famous people she has in her phone in a recent interview with Vanity Fair.
For the past three years, she's done the interview on the same day with the same questions to see how much she's changed.
This year, the 17-year-old surprised fans when she gushed about her friendship with the 33-year-old rapper from Toronto.
She said, "Drake is like the nicest dude I have ever spoken to. He does not need to be nice, he is at a level in his life where he does not need to be nice but he is."
Although that doesn't hint at anything romantic between the two artists, fans were still unimpressed to learn that new information.
Though some are trying to understand what's going on, others are outright furious.

It’s definitely possible he’s just being a role model and it has to do with marketing but why’s a 32-year-old man texting girls under the age of 17?" They got quite a few nods of agreement in the replies.

Another person called it "weird" that the Take Care singer is texting not one but two underage girls, even if they're both in the entertainment industry too.

Another person responded to the video and called this a "bad habit" of Drake's.
