Bella, who ended her 18-month relationship with Drizzy's friend and frequent collaborator The Weeknd in November last year, was first linked the rapper back in June.

Adding fuel to the fire, Bella's mother, Yoland Foster, was quizzed on her daughter's rumoured romance during an appearance on 'Watch What Happens Live'.

"There are rumours that Bella is dating Drake, is that true?" presenter Andy Cohen asked Foster during a quick-fire round.

"What are we… this is like… they’re friends..." Yolanda said, taken aback.

"He threw her a big 21st birthday party last night," Andy continued, to which Yolanda replied: "He did? Really?"

"Yes you were there!" Andy exclaimed, before Yolanda laughed off the rumour.

Following the interview, fans took to social media in search of confirmation of the potential romance.

Both Drake and Bella are yet to respond to the rumours.

Meanwhile, the California native recently became the centre of an Internet meme surrounding an interview she did with Complex.

After taking part in their sneaker shopping mini-series, Hadid's unusual use of slang caused the video to go viral.
