Speaking with Access Hollywood at the Emmys, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown revealed that she recently became friends with Drake, adding that he texts her with advice “about boys.” This may seem cute, since they’re both famous and it’s fun when celebrities are friends, except Drake is a 31-year-old man and Millie Bobby Brown is a 14-year-old kid. Take out the part where they’re famous, and it’s not particularly cute to hear that a guy is giving dating advice to a teenager who is less than half his age.
As noted by The Daily Dot, a number of people on social media have pointed out that this is super fucking gross, with some comparing it to the way predators “groom” underage kids for a sexual relationship. That’s the same thing Brand New frontman Jesse Lacey was accused of last year, after several women came forward with allegations that he had solicited nude photos from them when they were underage.
Meanwhile, Drake has supposedly been dating 18-year-old model Bella Harris, though she has denied that rumor.
