Drake spites online troll by following and DMing his wife on Instagram

If you had a dollar for every time Drake stole someone’s girl and rapped about it, you’d be Elon Musk before his Twitter buyout. Heck, the 35-year-old Canadian rapper has also been allegedly sued for putting hot sauce in his condom to ‘kill his sperm’. Although Drake is a ‘Certified Lover Boy’, he certainly doesn’t have time for his trolls. And if messed with, he can take pettiness to a whole new level.

The entire discourse began on Tuesday 3 May 2022, when NBA shooting coach Chris Matthews posted a screenshot of a comment which criticised Tee Morant, father of Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant, for his ‘attention-grabbing behaviour’ while he cheered from the sidelines during his son’s games. “I don’t think it’s really up to the world to criticize how a positive father shows up in his son’s life,” Matthews defended. “Instead of criticizing exactly how they show up, maybe we should instead celebrate that they’re present as a positive influence and helping young men move in a constructive way.”

Shortly after, Drake backed up the coach’s sentiments by commenting, “Imagine your son makes the league and he’s Ja or Melo or Lonzo. All you can do is be elated and competitive and it’s a right of passage to that the OG’s talk shit.” He later went on to mention his four-year-old son, Adonis, in his statement by writing, “I know I’mma be this way even if my son is in a rubix cube competition.”

As several users started supporting Drake’s thoughts on the entire ordeal, an internet troll replied, “Ya son prolly play with ghost writers”—referring to the rumours that the Canadian rapper doesn’t write his own verses.

What the troll didn’t expect is the rapper to swiftly reply to his digs. “I just followed your girl cause she’s prob miserable and needs some excitement in her life,” Drake replied. And, turns out, he wasn’t kidding. Not only did the rapper find and follow the troll’s wife on Instagram but he went as far as to slide into her DMs after she posted screenshots of her notifications to her Story.

“Oh hey @champagnepapi,” she wrote. “My husband decides to be a troll and now [Drake] thinking I need excitement in my life.” Shortly after, the troll himself posted a video in which he filmed his wife’s Instagram DMs. And there, in all its petty glory, was Drake’s text which read “I’m here for u ma.”

For years, Drake has been warning dudes about stealing their girls. Clearly, nobody took him seriously until now. But the troll admits he’s not worried about the rapper “snatching” his wife. “Only a n***a that’s very secure in his relationship gonna think this the funniest s**t in the world,” he wrote. “Her ass ain’t going nowhere.”
