It’s been just about a month since we’ve checked in on Drake’s love life, which means we’re long overdue for an update on who Drake is crushing on now.
Drake’s PR person must have finally figured out that people have stopped caring about Drake and Taylor Swift’s sponsored-by-Apple antics. And his phone calls to Doris Burke after their dinner date must have been mysteriously going straight to voicemail. Because Drake has moved on, and apparently the destination of his moving truck was Cougar Town.
TMZ says that Drake and Jennifer Lopez have been “spending time” together lately. The reason they’ve been hanging out so much is because they’re currently working on a music project together. But sources tell TMZ that it’s only a matter of time before things get romantic. They’re basically in that magical in-between period where they’re not quite friends/not quite “dating” to get some publicity for their project.
Drake is reportedly wooing JLo hard. On Monday night, Drake rented out a restaurant in West Hollywood for 20 of his friends and brought JLo as his date. He’s also seen her perform twice in Las Vegas. That picture above was taken a week ago and posted to Instagram by Drake after one of her shows.
We’ve all been burned by JLo’s relationship-hustling ways in the past, so I don’t believe that Drake and Jennifer Lopez are anything but co-workers right now. But if these sources are telling the truth and not just reading the notes off Drake’s vision board, then congratulations JLo. Drake is a major upgrade from Casper Smart. Although I’m sure if JLo gets nostalgic for the past, Drake will be more than happy to pretend to sneak a couple bucks from her purse when she gets up to use the bathroom.
Here’s Drake’s current crush at Barneys in Beverly Hills yesterday who, just like Bieber, also decided to work the bundled-in-fur-in-LA-weather look.
