Drake's baby mama Sophie Brussaux is no 'fluke', the former porn star is an accomplished painter and entrepreneur
Sophie Brussaux was formerly known as Rosee Divine when she worked in adult films. She hit headlines in 2017 when she announced that she was pregnant with the famous ‘In My Feelings’ singer Drake’s child. Brussaux and Drake had met in Amsterdam in 2017 where they got intimate and immediately after, she announced the news. However, there is more to Brussaux than her career in adult films and her tumultuous relationship with Drake.
Brussaux is a French artist, a model and a former pornstar. She has also made a name for herself in the world of arts. She is a famous portrait painter who has had her work exhibited in some major exhibitions. Her work blends surrealism, symbolism and pop art to colorfully capture popular figures such as Frida Kahlo, the Obamas, Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Winehouse and more.
According to her official website, Brussaux is also a founder and artistic director of ‘ArtsHelp’, a not-for-profit organization that provides a publishing platform for artists of all arts globally, who are making a difference through their craft. It's the largest creative community. In May 2019, UN-Habitat Global Advocate awarded Brussaux and her team for their collaborative "Icons With a Purpose" exhibition at the Toronto Design Exchange Museum.
She has traveled around the world and has been exposed to a culturally rich and diverse set of experiences. She paints in her Bordeaux, France-based studio and takes her pieces to art-loving nightclubs and museums alike in Milan, NYC, London, Dubai, Toronto, Paris and more. From her studies in international affairs to her successful former modeling career, Brussaux has gained a truly unique perspective on many real-world issues and ideologies. Her work depicts her experiences and ideology.
In 2017, Brussaux and Drake were seen with a couple of their friends in Amsterdam. In the same year, she announced that she was three and a half months pregnant with Drake’s child. During that time, Drake asked her to terminate the pregnancy according to the TMZ. But Burssaux did not want to abort the child.
Drake’s representative commented, “This woman has a very questionable background. She has admitted to having multiple relationships...She's one of many women claiming he got them pregnant. If it is, in fact, Drake's child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child."
In 2018, a year after his son, Adonis was born, the singer publicly accepted him as his son. Drake and Brussaux have had a rocky relationship, even after her announcement. Drake had allegedly called her ‘fluke’ that had led to a lot of uproar in the media but since the DNA test proved that it was his child he has been seen to make his relationship with his son and his baby mama better. Though they are not together, he still cares about his son.
In his song ‘Emotionless’, Drake raps about his son and Brussaux, talking about his relationship with both of them. A source told to TMZ, that Drake has been financially supporting Brussaux shortly after she gave birth to his son so that they live comfortably. Drake and Brussaux are trying to improve their relationship for their son, he invited Burssaux to watch his concert in Paris, giving her VIP seating to enjoy his show.
Brussaux revealed on Instagram that she landed a job as the Artistic Director at Toronto's Arts Help. It's unclear whether Drake had anything to do with this, but the move allowed him to be closer in proximity to his young son.
