Bella says she and Drake are just friends and calls other assumptions "disrespectful."
Select lyrics on Drake's "Finesse" from his new album Scorpion have led fans to believe that he has confirmed a rumored fling with model Bella Hadid that flew through the gossip circuit last year. However, Bella has decided to clear the air herself, suggesting that the assumption she and Drake are anything more than friends is "disrespectful."
Hadid replied to a tweet from Perez Hilton regarding the rumors, as well as a reader who assumed she and Drake had "probably" slept together. "Who hasn't [Drake] banged?" the Twitter user said, to which Bella responded, "Not me!!! that’s disrespectful. WHY CANT PPL BE FRIENDS W/o all the insinuation."
The lyrics which caused the most recent rumors included a reference to fashion week. ("I want my baby to have your eyes, I'm going against my own advice/Should I do New York? I can't decide/Fashion week is more your thing than mine"), as well as a line some assumed to be about Bella's sibling, Gigi Hadid ("You stay on my mind/You and your sister too hot to handle").
Last October, it was reported that Drake threw Bella a huge 21st birthday party and that the two were dating. At the time, Bella's mother denied that Drake and Bella had a romantic relationship. "They're friends," she told Andy Cohen.
Drake has been known to rap very vaguely about women in his life, which often causes fans to jump to conclusions about who he's referring to. 2014's "Days In The East" is one of many songs speculated to have lyrics addressed to Rihanna. The last we heard, Rihanna stated that the two no longer have a friendship. That quote alone should ensure some fans find a bar or two about the singer on Scorpion.
