KIM SHUTS DOWN DRAKE AFFAIR RUMOURS
After finding herself A embroiled in a fresh scandal last week, Kim Kardashian was forced to respond to claims that she once enjoyed an illicit affair with rapper Drake.
Kim – who’s married to Kanye West, with whom she has children North, five, Saint, two, and Chicago, seven months – was targeted by TV presenter Nick Cannon, 37, whom she dated in 2006. He claimed that Drake, 31, had “something real personal” he was holding “over the whole family”.
Pouring cold water on the affair rumours as they escalated online, Kim, 37, wrote bluntly, “Never happened. End of story.”
Speculation about the pair had been sparked by Drake referencing a woman named Kiki – Kim’s family nickname – in his hit song In My Feelings. He sang, “Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me. ’Cause I want ya, and I need ya and I’m down for you always.”
Days after Kim addressed the allegations, Kanye, 41, took to Twitter to make a public apology to Drake. The duo’s year-long feud is thought to be due to the fact that the pair released albums within days of each other.
“Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew,” he Tweeted alongside three love-heart emojis. He added, “I understand where the confusion started. Let me start by apologising for stepping on your release date
in the first place.”
It’s been a difficult few months for Kim and Kanye, with the rapper opening up about their marital woes in his single Wouldn’t Leave back in June. The song references the couple’s fallout after Kanye sparked a backlash in May by referring to slavery as “a choice”.
The lyrics include, “My wife callin’, screamin’, say we ’bout to lose it all. Had to calm her down ’cause she couldn’t breathe. Told her she could leave me now, but she wouldn’t leave.”
