Iggy Azalea NOT Dating Drake’s Dad, Despite Report
In one of its characteristically sensational headlines, MediaTakeOut exclaims, “Drake’s Father Is A P-I-M-P… They’re Saying Now… That He’s SMASHING Iggy Azalea!!!” The accompanying story states, “There’s an interesting new couple that could be forming in hip hop. Drake’s father, 6 GOD SENIOR, is allegedly dating Iggy Azalea.”
“According to multiple snitches in the building, 6 God Senior was cuddling up with the recently single rapper,” claims the webloid. “They couldn’t tell for CERTAIN whether the two were dating. But we’re told that they definitely LOOKED LIKE IT.”
And yet the site doesn’t even bother to say when or where the sighting took place. Gossip Cop actually suspects MediaFakeOut simply built this story around a photo Graham posted on Instagram early Friday morning. In the snapshot (see above), he has his arm around the Australian star.
Graham wrote in the caption, “Iggy baby I need everybody not to f*ck with my girl.” It seems likely MediaTakeOut saw the chummy photo and the caption and then jumped to conclusions, just like it has wrongly done so many times before. Back in 2014, for instance, the blog falsely alleged Jennifer Aniston and 50 Cent were dating or sleeping together after they, too, took an Instagram photo with their arms around one another.
And just like with this new Azalea story, that one had a sensational “smashing” headline as well. All this time later, the outlet is still up to its inaccurate and manipulative tricks. In fact, MediaTakeOut screwed up even more this time.
Along with the photo of Azalea, Graham posted several others… including one with his girlfriend, Ling Ling (see below). In fact, his feed is full of pictures of them together with adoring captions. So, in case it wasn’t already clear, no, Azalea is not dating Drake’s dad.
