Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown said this about Drake on the Emmy's red carpet earlier this week.
“I met him in Australia, and 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.’”
Millie went on to explain to Access Hollywood that she talks to Drake about boys and he gives her dating advice.
Drake is 31 and Millie is 14. Folks on Twitter suggested that Drake is grooming the youngster, particularly given his thing for very young women.

Drake is OBVIOUSLY grooming Millie Bobby Brown.. no 30-something year old man should be in a 14 year old girls text messages giving her... “dating advice”.— Wesley Lindsey 🎥 (@Zeitwes) September 18, 2018
So wait— coolgamer420 (niners 1-1) (@TheKevinfinity) September 18, 2018
Drake went on a date with that eighteen year old after they’d “known each other for two years”
And he’s texting 14 year old Millie Bobby Brown about boys and relationships, which is textbook grooming behavior

Millie defended her relationship with Drake on Instagram Stories and suggested the critics were the real weirdos.
Why u gotta make a lovely friendship ur headline? U guys are weird... for real (sic)," she wrote in a note posted on her Instagram Stories. "Im lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance. Im very blessed to have amazing people in my life. U don't get to choose that for me (sic).
