Drake and Amari Bailey's mother Johanna Leia have recently made headlines as reports said that the two were dating each other. In the early hours of July 9, the Canadian rapper was seen spending quality time with a woman along the third-base line at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. His fans were quick to speculate that the woman was Leia. They also expressed their views over his new romantic life as a user tweeted, “Looks like @Drake is wining and dining Johanna Leia at a private dinner for two inside Dodger Stadium Eyes upping the ante for men everywhere…”

Another one wrote, “She must have recently become single @Drake likes them fresh-off a breakup even more if it was a messy one.” The third one said, “That’s that Scorpio vibe.,, I aint mad at him! He just knows how to treat a lady! Flex yo shit #Drake!!!” “That thing Drake did with Johanna Leia is a major flex. That’s is the kind of money I want to have. The act is in the same class with Mark Zuckerberg buying all the houses around him because he needed the privacy,” a fan added.

For Drake, it’s not new to date high-profile women, including Rihanna, Jorja Smith, as well as the mother of his son Adonis Graham - Sophie Brussaux. But Leia is also not new to this. According to reports, the model and actor, known for her appearance in Lifetime’s ‘Bringing up Ballers,’ was once with footballer Aaron Bailey. Though it’s not known when the duo met and parted ways, they share a son together -- Amari Bailey.

Aaron is a member of the Louisville Cardinals and has played for the Indianapolis Colts in the NFL. Before meeting Drake, Leia was also linked with NBA pro Alfonzo McKinnie. The 28-year-old NBA pro has also reportedly helped Amari in sharpening his basketball skills. But since Leia has now been seen with Drake, it seems things between her and McKinnie have ended.
