Who is Drake now dating? Is he dating anyone, and who are his ex-girlfriends? Here's who Drake is seeing in the year 2022. Drake is very private about his love life; seeing him with a woman he's dating is extremely rare.
However, since his ascent to popularity over a decade ago, the Canadian rapper has been associated with many high-profile women, including Rihanna and Jorja Smith.
Drake explains the one quality he seeks in a woman. Drake stated to a friend and fellow artist, Nicki Minaj, in August 2022 that he is more interested in bonding with a lady than just physical appeal.
“I discovered fresh territory… I require new items. It's not only about clapping your hands “, but he also explained. In case you missed it, here's a detailed look at Drake's dating history.
Drake and model Cecilia Rose are reportedly dating after CCTV footage captured two people who looked like them walking through a Balenciaga store. Drake allegedly treated the 23-year-old model to anything she desired from the store, and she reportedly spent $300,000 on it.
Cecilia or Cece appeared in Drake's ‘Wait for You' video earlier this year, sparking rumors of a love interest. She is a TikTok star as well as an OnlyFans star.
According to insiders, Drake has been contacting the 90 Day Fiancé star since she divorced her spouse of six years, Pedro Jimeno. According to an insider, Drake has been messaging the reality star, and “Drake reached out to check how she was doing and where her mind was at, and she answered.”
“They've been DMing each other back and forth and are planning to meet soon,” they added. Drake and Chantel's relationship is in its “early stages,” with a source saying that “ladies might not expect any romance with Champagne Papi at first, but it always ends up that way.”
Chantel and her ex-husband Pedro Jimeno rose to prominence on the reality show 90 Day Fiancé but separated earlier this year after six years of marriage.
Drake was photographed on an intimate date with model and reality TV personality Johanna Leia in July 2021 in Los Angeles at an empty Dodger Stadium. According to TMZ, she and Drake have been covertly dating for months.
It's believed that the couple met a few months ago through high school basketball. Amari Bailey, Johanna's son, is a future basketball star. Drake allegedly advised Amari on “finances, fame, and life in general” and “how to deal with all the attention and pressure that comes with being a star player.”
Drake and Amari are said to have spent one-on-one time together, while he, Drake, and Leia have also spent time together at Drake's residence. However, three months later, it was revealed that the couple had called it quits and that the rapper had already moved on to a Miami-based, Canadian-born woman.
Kylie Jenner was rumored to have dated Drake at the end of 2019, just a few months after her separation from ex-boyfriend Travis Scott, with insiders stating they had “shared feelings” for one other.
According to reports, things had cooled down between the couple, with Kylie being turned off by his reputation as a notorious womanizer. “She's smarter than that,” stated a source. Drake has been a long-time friend of the Kardashian-Jenners, even performing at Kylie's 16th birthday party.
In May 2020, Drake's song referring to Kylie as a “side-piece” was mistakenly played during a live stream. The rapper later apologized for the lyrics and clarified the situation on Instagram.
“A song that Mark played on the night owl sound live set last night shouldn't have been played,” he began. “It's a song that leaked three years ago and was quickly pulled. He was simply delving too deeply into the Drake/Future catalog.”
“The last thing I'd want to do is wake up and have any of my pals feel disrespected, so I just had to say that to start the day,” Drake concluded. According to reports, Kylie laughed off the song.
In September 2018, Drake was romantically linked to model Bella Harris, reportedly closing down a whole restaurant in Washington, D.C., just for a date night with the beauty.
Harris is the daughter of Jimmy Jam, a prominent music producer and regular Janet Jackson collaborator. The reported affair raised some questions because Bella was only 18 and Drake was 31.
Harris, on the other hand, debunked the rumors. “After an incredible New York Fashion Week, I feel the need to set the record straight,” she wrote on Instagram. “I did not dine in DC recently.” I worked and ate every day in New York City.” According to an alleged source close to the rapper, the pair “never dated.”
Drake was seen leaving Toronto restaurant Sotto Sotto in June 2018 with the voluptuous model Zmeena. The aspiring actress and dancer has over a million Instagram followers and is most known for her twerking videos.
Drake was linked to Jamaican-Irish Instagram model Malaika Terry in the summer of 2018. The OVO CEO was spotted walking about his hometown of Toronto with Terry, and things were thought to be growing severe between the two, with some sources claiming she'd met his mother.
Drake expressed interest in Lateysha Grace, a Welsh reality personality, in mid-2018, at the same time he was linked to British singer Raye. The rapper had been in London a lot, promoting his fifth studio album, Scorpion.
Drake was rumored to be dating British singer Raye in April 2018, with rumors that the two had spent some time together while the rapper was in London.
According to a source, Drake was interested in Raye because of her songwriting abilities, and the two went on a “string of dates,” with Drake taking her to his favorite restaurant in Central London.
Drake was rumored to have dated British singer Jorja Smith in 2017. At the time, the rapper posted images with the ‘Blue Lights' singer on his Instagram account, and she was the opening act for his Boy Meets World Tour's Birmingham leg.
The couple was also seen together in her hometown of Walsall, with a source saying at the time, “It's more than just a one-off fling.” Drake was even said to have gotten the number '11' tattooed on him to commemorate Jorja's birthday.

Drake references that the tattoo is now in honor of his son Adonis' birthday since the pair split up in his song ‘March 14th,' taken from his album Scorpion. “I got this 11 tattooed for someone, and it's now yours.”The song ‘Jaded,' from the same album, is supposed to be about Smith and their relationship breakup.
After uploading a comfortable photo together, Drake and Jennifer Lopez sparked unexpected romance rumors towards the end of 2016, which sparked a social media frenzy.

Lopez supported the rapper during his New Year's Eve event in Las Vegas. Their whirlwind romance, however, was short-lived, as the couple called it quits less than two months later.
Drake and Rihanna, oh my. The ultimate will-they-won't-they scenario. They've never officially verified what happened, but Drake previously stated that he and the singer “had their moment” when he appeared on the Ellen Show in 2013.
That moment lasted at least a few more years, as the couple continued to show a lot of PDA in their music videos and concerts and were seen leaving clubs together on several occasions. Drake addressed Rihanna on stage during his Summer Sixteen Tour, “You turned up two nights in a row for my city; you might have to go half on a baby.”
Drake confessed his love for the Bajan beauty on stage at the 2016 Video Music Awards, an iconic encounter that the ‘Work' singer later described as “awkward.” Rihanna stated in May 2018 that she and Drake “don't have a friendship currently.”
