Kim Kardashian Is Not Amused By Drake Romance Rumors

PSA: Kim Kardashian has never been romantically entangled with Drake and she wants everyone to know it.

Hushed gossip of the glamorous kind flooded the Twitterverse over the weekend, with fans determined to uncover the truth behind the impish hints that Drake has slung at Kim Kardashian. He’s woven innuendo throughout his rap lyrics about an affair, and fans are sure that they are a direct reference to the queen of reality TV, Kim Kardashian.

There is no better detective than a fifteen-year-old girl on the Internet – and there are positive hoards of schoolgirls scouring the web for clues to this convoluted mystery. Many fans feel that “Kiki,” the primary love interest named in Drake’s viral sensation “In My Feelings,” is Kim because her sisters often call her by that nickname in episodes of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”. Additionally, Drake lives in the same neighborhood as Kanye and Kim – and his song “Can’t Take a Joke” references how he doesn’t have to go far to meet his lover: “I cut down the block, made a right.”

One fan in particular lay out all the damning evidence in one lengthy Twitter thread: (Click the tweet to read the novella-length argument.)

Nick Cannon joined the hubbub enthusiastically and offered his own two cents on the matter in Complex’s “Everyday Struggle”, explaining conspirationally that, “Stepping back as a fan, there is something real personal Drake holds over that whole family. Like, y’all don’t want me to let this out.”

However, when gossip Instagram The Shade Room uploaded a video discussing the alleged afair, Kim commented on the post concisely, shutting it down forever: “Never happened. End of story,” she wrote.

No one messes with Kim Kardashian. Not even Drake. Class dismissed.
