Drake and Sade? Some are calling him a smooth operator. While others say he’s new sweetest taboo. Either way, Drake is making a statement with pics of his possible girlfriend.
Tuesday, the 30-year-old Canadian-born rapper shared a snapshot on Instagram. It features him and Nigerian-born English singer Sade. The 58-year-old beauty appears to be intimately resting her head on Drake’s shoulder.
Rumor has it that they met at one of the rapper’s shows. Sade is said to have attended Drake’s Monday night performance at London’s The 02 Arena with her mother.
The Internet has been fuming with speculations about an intimate relationship between Drake and Sade ever since. Some say they could just be really close friends.
A source told Celebrity Insider the “Hotline Bling” singer had always been a huge fan of the Nigerian-born songstress.
“When he was a kid, his mother would listen to Sade and he would drool over her picture on the album cover. Being with her brought back those childhood memories and he was so shy around her.”
The source added, “He doesn’t like her, he adores her. He thinks she’s a legend and not only does he respect her, he worships the ground she walks on.”
Drake and J.Lo went their separate ways in February, after only two months of dating.
An insider told the Daily News the couple’s flame just “died down a bit.”
