Though it’s always good to take some of the celebrity news you read online with a grain of salt, we also believe that being aware of what’s being said about the movers and shakers of the modern-day world can’t hurt either. And guess what the latest scoop is? According to Page Six, Kanye West’s (aka Ye’s) new girlfriend, the actress and artist Julia Fox previously dated Drake, who initially slid into her DMs on Instagram praising her performance in Uncut Gems.
At the time, Fox was still with longtime partner Peter Artemiev—who she shares a one-year-old son with—but allegedly reached back out to Drake after she and Artemiev broke up the next year. Sources told the entertainment publication that Fox and a friend then met up with West’s nemesis/frenemy for drinks at New York City’s trendy Bowery Hotel in February 2020. He also showed up at Bloomingdale’s the next day—where she was doing a promotional gig—and even led to the event having to be closed down in order to accommodate his visit.
Page Six’s source went on to report that the actress later flew to Los Angeles just to spend Valentine’s Day with Drake, who gifted her not one but two Birkin bags. Fox apparently also went to see the (somewhat problematic) rapper at his Toronto mansion. However, she was forced to return to the US before the country’s border closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Apparently, long-distance relationships aren’t exactly Fox’s thing, since it was alleged that later, she eventually got back together with Artemiev. But, splitting once again from her longtime beau, Fox started dating Ye after they met in Miami this past New Year’s eve—their relationship continuing to make headlines amid his ongoing divorce with Kim Kardashian.
As if all of this drama wasn’t enough, it’s been said that Fox has actually told West about her previous fling with Drizzy—a man who allegedly puts hot sauce in his used condoms to prevent his partners from trying to get pregnant with him. And surprise, surprise, Ye is “not thrilled about it,” Page Six reported.
It’s commonly known that West and Drake have had an on and off friendship since 2011, after the Canadian star publicly said that he believed himself to be a competitor for West’s spot at the top of rap’s hierarchy. The feud became more heated when rapper Pusha T released a track on an album produced by West that revealed Drake had a son he was hiding from the public and alleged he was a “deadbeat” dad.
They infamously fought for hip-hop supremacy at the end of 2021 when West released Donda, which premiered with 313,000 album sales. A week later, Drake’s Certified Lover Boy became the top-debuting album of the year with 595,300 album units. Ouch.
However, the two rappers appeared to be on better terms following their ‘Free Larry Hoover’ benefit concert held in December 2021. We’re guessing things might not stay this calm now that Ye knows about Fox’s past relationship…
Before we get into the hot deets—literally—I’d like to strongly highlight the fact that, as far as I could snoop online, this story has not yet been fully confirmed from either side and the Instagram model is yet to be named. That being said, it does look like this rumour has some truth in it. Let me explain.
On Monday 10 January, Instagram page @TooMuchHotTea broke the story of how a mysterious Instagram model had threatened to sue the Canadian rapper Drake for putting hot sauce into his condom. Now, I can understand why this previous sentence might seem confusing at first. You’re probably thinking, ‘what the heck is this about?’.
According to the account, the model and Drake hit it off on Instagram where they started DMing each other—we’re not sure who approached who first. Both eventually met up at a party and later went back to the rapper’s hotel room to smoke some weed and, well, do the deed. Although Drizzy is known for showing signs of predatory behaviour when it comes to teen women, in this instance, it is said that he was very clear about ensuring that their ‘encounter’ was a consensual one.
Too Much Hot Tea went on to explain that prior to their intercourse, the rapper entered his bathroom to put a condom on. After both were done, he went back to the bathroom to throw the used protection in the bin. That’s where things get spicy—again, literally.
The model reportedly pretended like she needed to use the bathroom too in order to find the discarded condom and pour its contents into her. If you’re not sure why she would do that, it’s easy to assume that she was planning on getting pregnant from the ‘Hotline Bling’ singer.
As soon as she did that however, she immediately experienced a burning sensation and started to scream, causing Drake to run back to the bathroom to see what was going on. He then allegedly told the model that he poured hot sauce from a packet into the condom to kill his sperm, should someone try to get pregnant from him.
The Instagram post that started the whole rumour also contained further details about the rapper’s sexual exploits and what his ding-dong looks like.
On Tuesday, Drake seemingly addressed the tabasco fiasco rumour in an Instagram post of his own where the caption read, “You can have your 15 minutes of fame…I’ll take the other 23 hours and 45 mins”—insinuating that his alleged sexual partner was hungry for her 15 minutes of fame.
As crazy as this story sounds, the rapper has previously admitted to the lengths he goes to ensure that no one tries to take advantage of him in the bedroom. On Brent Faiyaz’s song ‘Wasting Time’ Drake can be heard rapping, “Gold medalist, flushed the Magnums just so they not collectin’ my specimens, damn.”
I don’t know about you, but while I patiently wait to see whether this rumour further develops, I’m really enjoying the memes out there…
