After months of speculation and an epic diss track by Pusha T, Drake has finally admitted that he fathered a child.
On his new album “Scorpion,” the 31-year-old rapper confirmed that he has a son, and simultaneously tried to salvage his good guy image with the lyrics, “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.”
The admission comes weeks after Drake was called out as the father of a boy named Adonis by rapper Pusha T on the track “The Story of Adidon.” The track also alleges that the Toronto-born star was planning to reveal the identity of his son through a collaboration with Adidas.
Although Drake has yet to give a formal interview to address the controversy, fans are clamouring to know more about the mother of his son, Sophie Brussaux.
Twenty eight-year-old Brussaux is a former adult film star known professionally as “Rosee Divine.” She was first spotted with Drake at dinner in Amsterdam in January 2017, after his short-lived romance with Jennifer Lopez.

In the spring of last year, Brussaux claimed to be 3.5 months pregnant with Drake’s child, and hired NYC-based lawyer Raoul Felder to petition the star for child support. She also alleged the star asked her to have an abortion.
Since retiring from adult films, Brussaux lives in France and is currently working as an artist. Sources revealed to TMZ that Drake has been “financially supporting” Brussaux prior to the Oct. 11, 2017 birth of their son.
In 2012, Brussaux appeared on the reality show “Real Mistresses of Atlanta” under her stage name, Rosee Divine. Although the show was never picked up, a trailer for the show features Brussaux apartment hunting and chatting on the phone with an anonymous NBA player. The next year, Brussaux was featured in Busta Rhymes’s “Thank You” music video that features Q-Tip, Kanye West and Lil Wayne.
Although she has since changed her Twitter account to private, Brussaux used to frequently tweet, and maintained a relationship with stripper Maliah Michel, Drake’s ex-girlfriend. Michel was featured in Drake’s “Find Your Love” music video, and revealed that during their relationship, Drake tried to convince her to give up exotic dancing.

Brussaux was recently offered $100,000 USD to participate in a one-hour Q&A with an adult webcam company, CamSoda, but the company says they have yet to hear back from her.
Despite the surge of attention, Brussaux is maintaining an online presence to promote her artwork, but has yet to make a comment on Drake’s album but has shared photos that feature her holding her son outside, as well as several photos taken during her pregnancy, including one from her baby shower.
