Don’t get it twisted! Millie Bobby Brown gushed over her sweet friendship with rapper Drake earlier this week when she revealed that they communicate often via text messages, but fans felt a little creeped out over the fact that Drake is 31 years old man who is very close with a 14-year-old girl. But the Stranger Things star took to her Instagram story to set the record straight and she flat-out told fans that they took her comments about her relationship with the “Nice For What” singer the wrong way.
“Why u [sic] gotta make a lovey friendship ur headline? U [sic] guys are weird… for real,” Mille wrote in a text post on her story. “I’m lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance. I’m very blessed to have amazing people in my life. U [sic] don’t get to choose that for me. It’s nice to have people who understand what I do. Now get back to talking about real problems in this world other than my friendships… jeez.”
Fans learned about Millie and Drake’s friendship when she was interviewed by Access Hollywood on the Emmys red carpet. “Aww, I love him,” Millie gushed. “I met him in Australia and he’s honestly so fantastic and a great friend and a great role model. You know, we just texted each other the other day and he was like, ‘I miss you so much’ and I was like, ‘I miss you more!’ He’s coming to Atlanta, so I’m definitely going to go and see him. I’m so excited.”
When asked about what type of advice Drake gives Millie, she revealed that it’s mostly advice about her love life. “About boys — he helps me!” she gushed. “He’s great, he’s wonderful, I love him.”
But fans are still weirded and creeped out by their friendship because of their 17-year age difference. “What the f–k is Drake doing talking to/texting Millie Bobby Brown, a FOURTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL [sic], about boys or anything at all? Like that is straight up creepy,” one fan tweeted, and another wrote, “The whole thing with Millie Bobby Brown and Drake texting is weird. It’s weird. Out here in the real world, would you be okay to find out a 31-year-old is regularly texting your 14-year-old daughter/son/brother/sister/etc? It’s just not okay.”
