While it’s been over a year since Drake and Rihanna cooled down their casual romance, the “Lemon” singer still isn’t surprised that her frequent collaborator has had a child in that time, according to a new report claiming the Caribbean beauty knows just how much of a “player,” the Canadian can be.
“Rihanna was not expecting how open Drake would be about his secret son with a random woman he barely knows,” a source reportedly told Hollywood Life. “She knows better than anyone that Drake is a bit of a player, so she’s not shocked that he had a child with someone he may not know very well.”
Still, there are no hard feelings between the two, with Riri hoping, “for the boy’s sake, Drake steps up and becomes a good, present father.”
Drake confirmed whispers of having a secret child on several tracks from new album, Scorpion, with reported former porn star, Sophie Brussaux, confirming his son was born October of last year.
