Issa Rae Denies Curving Drake
Obsessed Fan Who Dedicated Entire Season to Artist Continues to Shamelessly Fangirl When She Sees Him at Party Later.
Her tweet was in response to a report stating that Drake attempted to shoot his shot with the Insecure actress after the 2018 Golden Globes. Reportedly, she attended Sunday night’s ceremony, but on her way from one after party, it’s alleged that she was approached by Drake, who wanted Issa to stop by the Netflix party he was DJ’ing. One source says when Drake spotted Issa,
[He] made his whole group stop so he could go talk to her.
Asked her if she wanted to come to the Netflix party with him.
The insider says the actress told Drake “she was with all her friends,” and was like, “‘Thanks, but no thanks!'” The sources says Issa “walked away” and Drake essentially “got denied.”
Another source says the Drake “didn’t come on that strong,” but did “flirt a little.” The second insider elaborates,
He thinks Issa Rae is beautiful and talented. He would like to take her on date if he was given the opportunity. He talks highly of her talents to people.
However, Issa did end up at the Netflix party later that night and is said to have politely complimented his DJ skills at the party. Cute!
