Drake caused quite the stir in the city when people caught wind of him picking up Bella Hadid's birthday bill. Bella's star studded New York affair featured her sister GiGi Hadid, Travis Scott, manager to the stars Scooter Braun, DJ Martin Garrix and of course, Drake. Bella took to social media to express her happiness for the night, saying, "Thank you for all of your birthday wishes and love … I’m exploding with happiness and so thankful for all of the amazing people in my life. I love you."
Drake obviously met Bella when she was dating his OVO record mate, The Weeknd - a Scarborough native Drake scouted and signed to the Canadian label. Page Six reports that while there used to be all love between the two Ontario stars, Bella has caused a notable amount of tension.
“They both hang in the same Toronto crew and now they’re having to pick sides. The Weeknd performed [in Toronto] and people on Drake’s side were like, ‘I can’t show up to that . . . Got to have allegiance,’" sources claim. Bella and Drake have been spotted canoodling together as early as this June, dining and going out. It wasn't until recently that The Weeknd was bothered as sources have come forward saying "Bella and Drake have 100% hooked up."
This wouldn't be the first time Drake has crossed a line with a friend over a girl. Back in 2015, when Drake was a more vital component of Lil Wayne's Young Money, Drake visited Wayne in jail to tell him he had slept with his girlfriend. Though The Weeknd and Bella have been broken up for almost a year now, sources say that Drake violated some serious bro-code. Come on guys, aren't there enough supermodels to go around?!
