Despite what Pusha T claims on his diss track, Drake has reportedly been supporting his baby mama since she became pregnant last year.
Pusha T’s “The Story of Adidon,” alleged the Canadian rapper fathered a secret child with former adult film star Sophie Brussaux. Pusha also claimed Drake was trying to hide the son, named Adidon. But according to TMZ, the rapper has been supporting the child all along.
Sources told the gossip site Thursday that Drake has been financially backing Brussaux so that she’s comfortable since a little before she gave birth. And while Drake has yet to take a DNA test — he plans to in order to sort through legalities — he believes there’s a “slight chance” Adidon is his son.
Although the secret has been exposed thanks in part to Pusha T’s diss track, Drake was reportedly gearing up to own up to the whole thing on his upcoming album.
However, it seems Brussaux may have once had a sugar daddy if a reported synopsis of her time on a failed 2012 reality show is to be believed.
Producer/former music exec Mickey “Memphitz” Wright shopped “Real Mistresses of Atlanta” to networks like Oxygen but the program never made it on air. According to TMZ, Brussaux was seen on the phone speaking with an unnamed — but married — NBA star who told her to purchase a condo she liked. The baller appeared to be a sugar daddy to Brussaux, who was a “French model who likes luxury” known as Rosee Divine on the show.
Another issue brought up with Pusha’s song was the image of Drake in blackface on the cover. Pusha blasted the star for the photo, which was shot by David Leyes over a decade ago. On Wednesday, May 30, Drake posted a note to his Instagram story addressing the image head on.

“This was not from a clothing brand shoot or my music career,” he said. “This picture is from 2007, a time in my life where I was an actor and I was working on a project that was about young Black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and typecast. The photos represented how African-Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”
“Me and my best friend at the time Mazin Elsadig, who is also an actor from Sudan, were attempting to use our voice to bring awareness to the issues we dealt with all the time as Black actors at auditions,” he continued. “This was to highlight and raise our frustrations with not always getting a fair chance in the industry and to make a point that the struggle for Black actors had not changed much.”
Several people were eager to chime in on Drake’s blackface dilemma.
“Explaining the photo in a song, in detail, would be damn near impossible. Would take too much time. Drake was smart to release a statement about this now, and save the rest for the song.”
“Drake a white-passing Canadian man. Could’ve [done] anything else to promote the issue but thought blackface was a good idea.”
“You don’t use blackface to try and bring ‘awareness.'”
But many more were interested in his baby mama drama.
“Just because he’s paying money doesn’t make him a good dad! Y’all trying to help Drake bad. Lol.”
“Idc if [you’re] paying for everything. If you ain’t there to love your child you still a deadbeat. Don’t @ me.”
“‘Yet to have a DNA test’ is nonsense. NO ONE would support a child unless they had paternity confirmed. It’s an excuse for not spending more time with his son. Why put this child on the album unless he definitely knows he’s his? Doesn’t make sense. He’s not fooling anyone!”
