Is Shenseea pregnant? Truth behind rumors of Drake being the baby daddy
Social media was abuzz with the story after the rumor mill was kickstarted by an article stating Shenseea claimed Drake got her pregnant
Rumors that Canadian rap megastar Drake and Dancehall songstress Shenseea are expecting a child are reportedly false.
Social media was abuzz with the story after the rumor mill was kickstarted on 18karatreggae.com in an April article titled “Shenseea claims she is pregnant for Drake but he is denying it.” It claimed that Shenseea had hired an attorney to explore paternity and child support options, and that Drake wanted her to have an abortion. The article noted that she might also be pregnant from incarcerated DJ Vybz Kartel. According to Dancehall magazine, however, 18karatreggae.com is a known fake news website.
The outlet featured in its article an alleged text conversation between the two stars, showing Drake accusing Shenseea of attempting to "get Kim Kardashian or Cardi B type of fame out of” the situation. On June 9, the story was picked up by Bahamian radio station 100 Jamz, which cited the entire article in their broadcast, including a purported response from “Drake’s people” about Shenseea’s “questionable motives."
“The rep says he has no idea whether the purported text message is even real or out of context because they haven’t seen the actual text,” the radio host said, adding, “If it is in fact Drake’s child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child."
This, in turn, caused a major stir on social media in the past couple of days. While both artists are yet to address the allegations directly, Shenseea’s frequent collaborator and CEO/producer of Head Concussion Records, Rvssian, wrote “FAKE NEWS” on his Instagram Stories yesterday, likely in response to the rumors.
It's worth noting that Drake has a three-year-old son named Adonis Graham with French artist Sophie Brussaux. Meanwhile, Shenseea has a five-year-old named Rajeiro Lee.
Are Drake & Shenseea collaborating?
According to Dancehall magazine, rumors of a second baby on the way for the two artists have no basis. However, fans are speculating whether or not a collaboration is in the works. Queen of Dancehall Spice blasted Shenseea’s manager Romeich Major during a recent Instagram Live session for failing to secure a collaboration between herself and the 'Blessed' hitmaker.
“Unnu do song wid Jesus, unnu do song wid 21 Savage, unu have song ah come out wid Drake, unnu have all kinda ah sumn plan pon di album, nuh care di biggest sumn weh yuh get yuh still have a problem wid me,” she said, allegedly revealing that Drake and Shenseea might have an upcoming collab.
Shenseea is expected to release her debut album later this year. Meanwhile, Drake has confirmed that his new album Certified Lover Boy will be released before the end of summer, per Billboard.
Fans chimed in with various reactions.
"Can’t wait to hear this Shenseea x Drake song, better be damn good is all I know," one tweeted. "I really think that Shenseea/Drake thing fake But if it were true, how is Drake impregnating her and not claiming the child anything to even celebrate (even if in jest)?" another wrote.
"If Shenseea really pregnant for Drake just know it was Romeich’s idea," one Twitter user quipped. "Shenseea and Drake got a song dropping, and that’s that," another declared.
