Drake conducted two DNA tests for son Adonis to be sure he was his child before showing him off to the world
The Canadian rapper shared his son's pictures on Instagram two years after admitting to fathering him with a porn star
Canadian rapper Drake, who posted pictures of his two-year-old son, Adonis, on his Instagram account on March 30 has revealed that he demanded two DNA tests before he stunned the world.
The 'God's Plan' rapper said in an interview with Rap Radar which was released in December 2019 that he had to get DNA tests for him to be sure Adonis was his child. “To be honest with you, I did a DNA test for my son and it came back to us and it said the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn’t be 100 percent sure that that was my son or not."
“So, I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn’t want to go tell the world that was my son and it wasn’t. If you see my son you understand why,” referring to the young one’s pale skin, blue eyes and blond hair.
“He’s a stunning child you know, with the brightest blue eyes and at the time I was like ‘I don’t know. It actually wasn’t until a week before the album came out that I got confirmation that that was definitely my son,” he added. Further in the interview, Drake revealed that it took him “two more solid (DNA) tests with two different companies” to confirm the "truth".
The 33-year-old, who first kept the birth of his son a secret, posted a series of his photos on his social media account showing off the little one’s blue-eye and blonde curly-hair for the first time. He shared the pictures of Adonis on Instagram two years after admitting to fathering him with Sophie Brussaux, a French-based artist and former adult star.
With the pictures, he also wrote a long caption and at the end of the post, he wrote, “You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on,” indicating they were isolating separately because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier reports have claimed that Drake had taken a paternity test after the birth of Adonis in 2017 and had kept the news secret until fellow rapper Pusha-T outed him in a diss track. Back in 2018, Drake had eventually opened up and shared that he had a son.
At the time, he also said during a rap song, “I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.” He had also confirmed rumors about becoming a father on his album 'Scorpion', and revealed a lot more about Adonis who was born in October and said he celebrated when a DNA test confirmed his paternity.
Drake also addressed his relationship with his son's mother, Brussaux, in his song 'March 14', where he paid homage to Michael Jackson's track 'Billie Jean' as he talks about his mother Sandi Graham. "She's not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine/ Sandi used to tell me all it takes it one time, and all it took was one time/ S***, we only met two times, two times," he said.
