Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown (14) Is Defending Her Friendship With Drake (31)
The pair regularly text each other after meeting at one of the rapper's concerts.
At the Emmys earlier this week, MBB revealed that she and Drake regularly text each other, and he offers advice about her dating life:
He’s honestly so fantastic. A great friend and a great role model. 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”.
When pressed on what exactly Drake’s dating advice consists of, she said: “That stays in the text messages.”
We’re all for a good celebrity friendship, but to many people, hearing about a 31-year-old man texting a 14-year-old girl seemed… sketchy. Especially as Drake is rumoured to be dating an 18-year-old model that he’s known for two years.

Responding to the concern on her Instagram Story, Millie said she felt “lucky” to have such a good friend in the industry:
Why u gotta make a lovely friendship ur headline? U guys are weird… For real. I’m lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance.
“It’s nice to have people understand what I do,” she continued. “Now get back to talking about real problems in this world other than my friendships… jeez.”
So also thanked her supporters, writing “To all the supporters: I love you guys. Thank you for supporting me. Many thanks to u guys. Sending my love to wherever u are in the world.”
Do you think their friendship is a bit strange?
