How did Drake and Sophie Brussaux meet?

Brussaux was first linked with the OVO hitmaker in January 2017 after the couple were photographed on a dinner date in Amsterdam while Drake was stopping over on his Boy Meets World Tour.

Months later, she claimed to have received texts from Drake asking her to get an abortion. At the time, a rep for Drake told TMZ, "If it is in fact Drake’s child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child."

On 11th October 2017, Brussaux gave birth to the pair's son, Adonis, after posting images of her pregnant belly and baby shower on Instagram just weeks before.

Around the time the baby news broke, Brussaux appeared to block the use of the work 'Drake' on her Instagram comments after receiving hateful remarks from the rapper's fans.

What did Pusha T say about Sophie Brussaux?

Sophie was referenced in Pusha's aforementioned track in the lyrics below.

"Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother /
Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her /
A baby's involved, it's deeper than rap /
We talkin' character, let me keep with the facts /
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home /
Deadbeat motha****a, playin' border patrol, ooh /
Adonis is your son
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real /
Love that baby, respect that girl /
Forget she's a pornstar, let her be your world"
