The Untold Truth Of Drake's Baby Mama

As popular as Drake is, his personal life is generally kept under wraps. That includes who he lays down with at night. That's why, when we learned about his secret lovechild, we had to find out all we could about the baby's mother, Sophie Brussaux. The pair have had an up-and-down relationship and a lot of it played out in the public eye. From their first date to the birth of their son, Adonis, we've seen quite a bit, but there is much more to Brussaux than just a pretty face — including being way more accomplished than most people are probably even aware of.

Drake has mentioned Brussaux and his son in numerous songs to date. On "March 14th," off the album "Scorpion," he rapped, "I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick / I think he must've / brought you like twenty gifts / Your mother say you growing so fast / That they don't even really fit / But man, you know, I still had to get it for my boy though." But the most obvious mention of Brussaux has to be on "When To Say When," off of his "Dark Lane Demo Tapes" when he rapped, "Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is." 

So, who exactly is this girl Champagne Papi called a "fluke"? Let's dive in and find out the untold truth of Drake's baby mama.

Sophie is a product of France

Sophie Brussaux was born in Paris, France on August 1, 1989. She is extremely well-traveled, according to her website, which also states that she is "an award-winning visual artist, who aims to use her art to make a positive impact on the world." She attended the Bordeaux International School and has degrees in International Affairs and Wealth Management, per OK!

Art seems to have always been a road she wanted to go down. Brussaux told Forbes, "Ever since I was a little kid I was an artist. My mom made me try all types of art — dancing, playing music and a whole lot of things until I found what I truly love a few years ago." 

Even though her dreams of success in the art world seem to have always been prevalent, the French bombshell chose to go down a couple of different routes early on in her career.

Sophie was a 'Real Mistress of Atlanta'

Sophie Brussaux, going by Rosee Divine at the time, was cast in a reality show called "Real Mistresses of Atlanta" (screenshot above). The show featured four ladies and one guy who were supposedly having affairs with celebrities. 

The show's stars, or "mistresses," included Maliah Michel who dated musician Sean Kingston (and who had once dated Drake himself); Sarah Oliver, who's seen in the trailer getting body injections; aspiring rapper Mary Jane; Branden, the only male "mistress" looking to out some A-listers, and Brussaux, aka Rosee Divine, who was dealing with an unnamed (and presumably married because ... mistresses) NBA player, who may or may not have bought her a condo. What a luxurious life the side-chicks lead.

Unfortunately — or fortunately depending on who you ask — there weren't any networks interested in the show, and all that remains of it is a trailer. It's definitely worth a look if you're interested in seeing what bad reality TV looks like — well, worse than what actually gets picked up, that is.

Her natural assets piqued the internet's curiosity

Although her stint in reality TV didn't really take off, Sophie Brussaux was still able to make a name for herself as a model and video girl, getting features in publications like WorldStarHipHop and videos such as Gucci Mane's "Me" and Busta Rhymes' "Thank You." When asked by ShyGirl Magazine what makes her unique compared to other women in her industry, she said it's her naturally curvaceous figure and having a tiny waist. Brussaux explained that being a European artist makes her different as well.

A quick Google search might give you a glimpse of what the model was speaking of, as she was also involved in something a little more ... adult. Although many have called what she did adult films, doing so would be a stretch, as only videos of her partaking in some nude modeling seem to exist on the Internet. 

Despite this being the case, once her identity was revealed — and seeing her with no clothes became a possibility — the internet did what it does, resulting in one adult video site's claim to TMZ that her name was searched 513,760 times and Rosee Divine 256,374 times. A similar spike occurred after actual adult film star Stormy Daniels' infamous "60 Minutes" interview where she talked about her alleged affair with Donald Trump.

She met Drake in Europe

Sophie Brussaux reportedly met Drake in Amsterdam in January 2017. TMZ speculated the date of Adonis' conception was either the 20th or 21st of that month and they were spotted enjoying dinner at a Japanese restaurant on the 24th. Later that year, Brussaux claimed to be carrying a little 6 God in her belly, but Drake and his team refuted the claims, stating, "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."

Despite Drake's reps' initial attempts to save face, the rapper later went public with confirmation of his paternity. In the song "March 14th," released in June 2018, he addresses his time with the French beauty, rapping, "Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time / And all it took was one time / Sh*t, we only met two times, two times / And both times were nothing like the new times." Another notable line from the song is, "She not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine." 

Clearly, Drizzy came to grips with reality, but it wasn't the smoothest road for Brussaux.

Sophie and Drake learned how to co-parent

Drizzy's doubts about whether Adonis was his son led to a dark place, according to TMZ, which reported that Sophie Brussaux claimed the rapper asked her to have an abortion. Speaking with Rap Radar, Drake didn't address that claim, however, he did detail the paternity dispute, explaining that he found out Adonis was his about a week before his album "Scorpion" was released. The rapper also explained that he was finally convinced he was the father after getting two separate paternity tests with two different companies. As for Brussaux, she's been linked to other top stars, like A$AP Rocky, who was allegedly still seeing her while she was pregnant.

Fortunately, Drake and Brussaux are quite friendly as of this writing and quite public about co-parenting their son. Opening up on Lebron James' HBO show, "The Shop," Drake said, "I am a single father learning to communicate with a woman, who, you know, we've had our moments ... No matter what happens, I have unconditional love for the mother of my child, because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy."

It seems like the OVO Sound founder is doing just that. He invited his baby mama out to a March 2019 show he had in Paris, where it looked like she enjoyed herself. He's even posted pictures of the fam on Instagram, with a heartfelt caption that alluded to him having found his "inner light."

Drake was outed on 'The Story of Adidon'

The Kanye West and Drake feud is another story entirely. One of the most important things to come from this situation was West's G.O.O.D Music labelmate (and president) Pusha T's song, "The Story of Adidon." The song was a response to Drake's "Duppy Freestyle," and exposes Drake for initially denying Adonis was his and for Sophie Brussaux's alleged checkered past. Some of Pusha's lyrics include, "Let 'em know who you chose as your Beyoncé / Sophie knows better as your baby mother / Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her / A baby's involved, it's deeper than rap" — ouch!

Drake accused West of spilling the beans, and producers T-Minus and Malik Yusef (Yusef's a longtime collaborator of West's) second that notion. However, in an interview on "The Joe Budden Podcast," Pusha stated that the information got back to him through a girl who was sleeping with longtime OVO producer and Drake's close friend, Noah "40" Shebib.

Things got so bad, Drake's mentor J.Prince had to step in and mediate, stating in an interview on Sway's Universe that Drake had an unreleased retort to Pusha. Not long after, West took to Twitter and declared the beef squashed. Drake addressed that in an interview with Rap Radar and explained that he said some very harsh things in that unreleased tune, words that just weren't him. Maybe one day we'll get to hear the diss track, if only for musical integrity.

Sophie's art is at the core of her life

Sophie Brussaux is a painter whose work is a mix of surrealism and pop art. She's done colorful portraits of notables such as the Obamas, Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, and Frida Khalo and if you take a look at her work you'll see she's incredibly talented. She's exhibited her work in museums and nightclubs in Dubai, London, and New York City and even met Pope Francis at the Vatican to deliver his custom portrait. She memorialized the moment on Instagram, captioning in part, "Such an honor to meet Pope Francis and gift him the portrait I painted for him in honor of his concert with and for the poor on Nov 9, 2019. Thank you."

According to her website, the French artist pulls from spirituality and cultural symbolism when crafting her pieces. She is also big on science fiction and said her art is a mixture of sci-fi, biblical themes, pop art, and other styles. Plus, having a child has inspired her art: "Motherhood has drawn out multifaceted goals and aspirations that once never held a spot in her heart or mind. Sophie sees the world through the eyes of her child and wants it better and art is her vessel to leaving a legacy of herself for him," her bio reads. 

Could there be a more beautiful sentiment for one's child? Here's hoping Adonis grows up to be a hit-making, masterpiece-painting prodigy!

Sophie is helping a new generation of artists

Sophie Brussaux is the co-founder and former artistic director of Arts Help, a 2.5 million member nonprofit organization that works toward social change. According to Forbes, another objective of the organization is to promote independent artists.

Speaking on what she hoped to accomplish with Arts Help, Brussaux told Forbes, "I want to break the stigma of art and what it means to be an artist. Regardless of medium, your art is important and Arts Help is the guidance. Individual growth is the highest hope we have for a published artist." Of her own artistic expression, Brussaux told the outlet that art is the way she fully communicates with the world and that being one of the faces of Arts Help has added to her as a person and artist. Plus, it's allowed her to better connect with other creatives and those who have similar artistic pursuits.

Additionally, Billboard reported that Brussaux and others at Arts Help were given an award by UN-Habitat Global Advocate in 2019 for their exhibition, "Icons With a Purpose," displayed at the Toronto Design Exchange Museum. Brussaux and Arts Help were also involved in addressing climate issues while partnering with Toronto's York University on a unique park project called "Project Climate Change." For that event, Brussaux said a combination of art and training would be used to show people how to solve climate problems.

She's a space and tech buff

If you thought that Sophie Brussaux was just an artistic social media heartthrob eager to fix climate issues, keep on thinking because she possesses yet another interest, space and technology. Proof of that can be seen in the bio of her Instagram page, where she's described herself as a "Space enthusiast." Brussaux has also partnered with the blockchain GoChain to auction off digital pieces of her art as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). 

She also wants to auction her art through eco-friendly blockchain technology and once spoke about the wastefulness of bitcoin mining. "I've always been interested in the intersectionality of art and tech," Brussaux told Fox Business in 2021. "The mining of a single bitcoin block is enough electricity to power more than 28 U.S. homes for a full day. That's because the math problem to solve is so complicated it requires a lot of computing power to encrypt something."

More confirmation that Brussaux is a space buff comes in the form of an Instagram photo that she posted in August 2021 at the museum Cite de l'Espace Toulouse in France. The image shows the artist and activist standing next to a rocket ship while looking incredibly small in comparison.

Sophie and Drake seem to be on solid terms

Raising a child has enough challenges on its own, but co-parenting with someone you're no longer romantically involved with is a whole other uphill trek. But for Drake and Sophie Brussaux, they've seemed to figure out how to be on pretty solid terms. At least it seems that way, based on a message the Canadian rapper sent to her in 2021 for Mother's Day on Instagram Stories. In that post, he gave Brussaux a shout-out next to a photo of her and their son, Adonis, which was captured by Page Six.

If anything, the upload shows that Brussaux and the "Hotline Bling" creator came a long way, which Drake confirmed when he was on HBO's "The Shop" in 2018. Basically, the rapper said that he gained further perspective on his and the painter's union and wants nothing but positivity. 

"I don't ever want the world to be angry at his mother. We have found ourselves in a situation and we are both equally responsible," he explained. "No matter what happens, I have unconditional love for the mother of my child because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy."
