Millie Bobby Brown and Drake

Millie Bobby Brown defended her relationship with rapper Drake. The 14-year-old sparked controversy on social media after she said she and the 31-year-old rapper exchanged texts "all the time."

The "Stranger Things" star opened up about their odd friendship to Access Hollywood while on the red carpet at the 2018 Emmy Awards.

"I love him. I met him in Australia, and he's honestly so fantastic," she gushed. "He's a great friend and a role model. We just texted each other the other day and he was like, 'I miss you so much,' and I was like, 'I miss you more.'"

Her statements were not well received by parents who are wary of their teenagers meeting older men online. Many parents worry that the teenager's statement will influence their daughters to fall victim to older men online or via text messages.

But Brown shrugged off the criticism, saying people should focus on real world problems and stay out of her business.

"Why u gotta make a lovely friendship ur headline? U guys are weird," she wrote in a note posted on her Instagram Stories. Th 14-year-old previously stated Drake gives her advice on boys.

Drake and Bella Harris

"Im lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance," she said. "Im very blessed to have amazing people in my life. U don't get to choose that for me."

She added: "It's nice to have people understand what I do. Now get back to talking about real problems in this world other than my friendships... jeez."

So far, the teenager's parents haven't commented on her relationship with the promiscuous rapper,.

In related news, Drake reportedly gave an 11-year-old heart patient an iPhone so she can "keep in touch with him."

Drake and Sonia Sanchez

Sofia Sanchez, who was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, went viral on YouTube when she performed Drake's "In My Feelings" challenge while awaiting a new heart transplant.

Drake visited Sanchez in the hospital, days before she received a new heart in late August.

During an interview on the Today Show this week, Sanchez revealed Drake gave her an iPhone so she could call him whenever she wanted.

“He said that when I got out of the hospital and I could go around more people, he said he’s gonna bring me up onstage and sing God’s Plan to me,” she gushed.

Drake continues to raise eyebrows over his inappropriate contact with young girls.

The rapper is reportedly dating 18-year-old socialite Bella Harris, whose father is legendary music producer Jimmy Jam. He waited until the young model turned 18 before taking their relationship public.

    lol well don't he like his girl BBW?!?!?

    Drizzy you losing me

  • Being bad is way more fun

    They are like brother and sister. Leave them alone .. We all need those older friends that are kewl and can go to advise that are non parental and family to be kewl with. Most of the time they are worlds apart and the text seem very innocent. Slow news day I guess

    Can we get a Kanye post please? Not this fluff...

  • SpiceGirl

    Yawns......

  • Shanese

    She needs to stop making it more than it is. She’s that young kid who just started high school who lets everybody know she’s friends with the seniors so she can get cool points from her peers chile.... y’all have nothing in common except acting!

  • AmericanDream

    He’ll do anything for attention , as for that child actress she’ll fade like the rest of them or be forced to engage in more attention seeking antics to remain relevant

  • Renee26

    Bless little Sofia heart... That exchange doesn't seem inappropriate. If the parents aren't leery then I won't be either

  • Renee26

    She's not going to high school

    She'll probably be writing a book in about 20 years ?. #metoo

  • WhoKnew

    Fourteen year old Millie don't care what you think about her relationship with the horny ass syphilis and gonorrhea card carrying king and neither does her mother. She just wanna have his baby by the time she is 15.

    What grown ass man says to a 14 y/o girl "I miss you so much"? Isn't that the same thing he said to popping bumps on my pussy stripper "lacefront Lucy" who claims to be preggos by him? Yeah, Mr. S&G King, catch me running for the "I don't give a phugg" train. Bout to make me miss my stop,

  • Yardgirl

    We just texted each other the other day and he was like, ‘I miss you so much,’ and I was like, ‘I miss you more.'”
    *******************************

    Creepy AF!! If her parents aren't concerned then who am I to get my panties in a twist??

  • WhoKnew

    It's not the exchange between him and Sofia. It's the exchange between him and 14 y/o Millie.

    Her words: "We just texted each other the other day and he was like, ‘I miss you so much,’ and I was like, ‘I miss you more.'”

  • Shanese

    Read my comment again I was making a theoretical comparison by comparing her attitude to that of someone in high school who’s cool with the older kids and makes sure everyone knows it

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    She needs a parent. I read she quiet the pot head.

  • WhoKnew

    My mama and gma used to say stop being so "fast" (meaning boys). I've read that she's on the super fast side. Maybe that's why she skipped boys and went straight to grown men with pedo tendencies.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    He’s a great friend
    _______________
    Nope. I can't see a 14 year old and 31 year old having too much in common where they are "great" friends.

    He waiting them 4 years out till the 18th birthday smh sick ass

  • the guest

    Did you see this girl' demeanor and attitude on the Emmy's?

    Have you seen her photos on line?

    Hollywood gives her a grown image. Not grown as in sexy, but grown as in she's a woman not a child. This child carries herself like she is the peer of adults.

    What the heck does she mean she doesn't care what people think about he friendship with 31 year old man? How off base. This child is absolutely being groomed.

    And where is this child's spokesperson!

  • the guest

    You can tell she's fast.

    I caught her roll her eyes after Regina King's speech. It's fast but she did. As if she didn't approve of Ms. King's speech. I said that little girl must be a piece of work in person.

  • TheOwley

    She has helicopters and submarine parents. Her parents support this so called friendship 100%. They are shameless.

  • Sircaput

    Legal age is 18 so not sure why this is a story?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Her parents don't mind. Plus, she 14 going on 25. She's not your average, everyday 14 year old because the average 14 year old has nothing to say to a 31 year old man except hello Mr_____. I find a lot of white parents have no problem with their young girls being 'grown'. I see it here at work. These rich kids come in with no real deference to adults. They are rich, world traveled, spoiled and are used to conversing with adults on an adult level. I'm not surprised at this.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I didn't watch the Emmys but am familiar with her because of Stranger Things. I've seen photos of her online and in magazines. Don't pay too much attention to her cause, well, she's a teenager. We all know Hollywood is weird...! SMH.

    I know she is atypical of a teenager, but regardless of her demeanor, attitude, and appearance, that won't change the fact that this girl IS 14. Drake knows that too.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I can believe this kid is waay too mature for 14. I worked with some rich 19 and twenty year olds whose parents had been leaving them on their own since they were 13 to go on vacation halfway around the world for three months or more! As kids they were used to making their own decisions and doing whatever they wanted. I have to say they were waay more mature than I was. I thought it was neglect. The they just shrugged it off. Rich people ways, I guess...

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    Now this is true I have seen this a few times... they are way calm with their kids let the boyfriends spend the night and all... I try not to judge ppl but chileeeee I would NEVER let my son girl spend the night I do not want to be a granny no time soon okay nope nuh uhhh no waayyyyyyy

  • Quitedeliteful

    So true! I was in Jamaica on vacay and met a granny who was there with her daughter and her granddaughter. The granddaughter was out of control! She was 14, in the skimpiest bikinis and prancing all around with all kinds of guys. The mother nor the grandmother saw anything wrong with it. They didn't even know where she was half the time!! The granny said I would do it too if I could. It seemed like a rite of passage -- go to Jamaica and get a good friggin by a black dude. smh... #theystartthemyoung

  • Malcom Flex

    ....because this girl has been turned out already and her parents are OK with it. That's Hollywood. We already know how it's gonna end up for her. White hoe's problems.

  • Malcom Flex

    Her parents are happily pimping her out.

  • Tiffany Miller

    This will start an entirely new thing where children will be presented as adults to make pedophilia acceptable.

    Hollywood is a cesspool where would Drake find free time to talk to these children is he her handler. The only way I would be communicating with a fourteen year old is if they were family or a close friends kid if there is a bound there.

  • Junkanoo

    I saw a Ted talks on facebook ( the retirement home for old people) and the speaker a white female was saying how pedophiles will never change and that the public needs to change our perception of them well I quit watching cause it was clear they're trying to normalize pedophila probably because it's popular among the elites.

  • WhoKnew

    Rich people problems. Only time you will catch a black parent leaving their child for 3 months is if they are strung out in the trap house on that shyt. Crack or heroine will make you neva want to go home. Other than that hell no a black parent ain't on that rich people shyt leaving their kids.

  • Sassie

    Drake not a pedo. Geez. People are sick. I will say, however, that I wouldn't want my young daughter talking to ANY grown man or texting any GROWN man, not even Drake.

  • the chosen one

    is Drake another R. Kelly?

  • WhoKnew

    Yep. I agree.

  • WhoKnew

    Yep, Seems like.

  • WhoKnew

    Exactly. I can see a text between her and her father. "I miss you" and "I miss you more". But a grown ass man with a history of having a search warrant out for his pewn pewn pewn? Nah, it's a no dawg.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Remember you're talking about a 14 yr old. Her mind has not gasp that concept,it doesnt register because she's not mature enough.

  • dru and neil

    That’s why I said that she doesn’t understand how she’s making him look telling the world they are close friends. If anything the relationship shouldn’t even be a thing because he knows how it looks.

  • Renee26

    No...not yet but I plan to this weekend

  • Miss3rdWard

    Pedophilia has been normalized in various societies throughout the world for centuries, which is a sad, sickening fact. If anything, America used to pretend that children were off limits, however, it's very clear that our society now has an anything goes mentality - at least that is what is being popularized and channeled to the next generation right now. I'm only 35, but the changes that have happened in the past 15 years alone, makes me want to cry sometimes.

    I know exactly the type of children that you're referring to... but a child is a child is a child. There are things they don't/can't/won't understand, well-traveled, rich or not, celebrity or not, for years. This child doesn't even understand why people are so turned off by her comments.

    My daughter is an highly intelligent teen, so much so, she prefers to talk to adults and has a difficult time dumbing herself down to converse and mingle with peers. However, let Drake, or any GROWN man try and pull this stunt and the REAL Miss3rdWard (not the corporate one) is going to show up and act out. Her parents are wrong and this line of thinking that she (or any rich child) with money and a few experiences under her belt shouldn't be protected from predatory behavior is DUMB.

    And I don't mean this to you directly, I'm just commenting in general.

  • samuel severino

    Not a good question. Her parents sold her out for money and fame a long time ago. Drake is not her first “weird relationship” with a man much older than she is. In fact, she goes to these events all over the world and rarely do you see her parents with her. She is going to be another Ariel Winter or Isabela Moner.

  • Melinated Goddess??

    Drakes best friend is a human trafficker. Let that sink in for a minute .

  • Quitedeliteful

    I get it... and I would do the exact same as you if I had a 14 year old.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Back in the day when you were 14 years old, and if your momz or grandma cawt you tawkin with a man who was 31 or even got wind of it, they would beat that ass to an inch of your life. It was wrong back then and it's wrong today. I don't care how friendly Drake And Millie conversation is, it's still inappriopate for a 31 yr old and a 14 yr old to be texting. THEY AIN GOT SHIDT IN COMMON. if she needs some advice, let her go to her older male kin folks. I am very concerned for Drakes dumb ass. Drake is about to cross that line of being a predator.

  • samuel severino

    Umm....she is not a typical 14 year old. You should be able to tell that just from her responses and body language. And you wouldn’t think she was 14 if you did not know her age. Again, that is due to who she mainly hangs around.

  • Alextra Ballard

    He about to cross that line

  • Cricket404

    It's probably harmless. I remember what Trump said about Paris Hilton, "she's dumb as a fox but a very pretty girl". I think some father's would rather marry off their foxy daughters to rich men who can take care of them, than to have them left to the wolves.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Girl had it not been for him being Drake,dem white folks would've been call the proper authorities

  • 888

    This is true...Sadly, Hollywood is filled with people with the sickest perversions and they constantly get a pass. I always say people would not be so submissive if it was one of their family members. I also feel like if one of my closest friends turns out to be a pedophile , human trafficker, involved in any form of child abuse, WE ARE NO LONGER FRIENDS. PERIOD! People take friends to the end too far. Even if it is a family member Im leaving them alone. PERIOD. Let them find their "support" elsewhere.

  • Logan Roberts

    Now watch 10-15 years down the line, Millie be screaming #Metoo.

  • ImWoke

    Even if he isn’t a predator he will be accused of being one based on his relationships with these young girls.The law may not be as kind to you Drake as it’s been toward R. Kelly

  • Alextra Ballard

    This entire relationship is disturbing. Drake act like this is the norm

  • Alextra Ballard

    some 14 yr old are very mature. sometimes it is because of the company that they surround themselves with. They are also cunning and manipulative. I will never believe that a 14 yr old is mature enough to be texting someone who is 17yrs older.
    Jmo!!

  • Maxx

    This is not back in the day & she is a working actress in the entertainment industry. I'm sure the young lady has a lot of mentors that have an honestly non predatory relationship with her. Why are people so damn negative & willing to believe the worst so easily. I know ya'll can't be this gullible, damn.

  • Maxx

    They are co workers of sort as they are all in the entertainment industry. Your right...if anyone believes he is trying to get at this young lady you are freakin sick in the head & your life sucks

  • Tena

    Definitely border line pedophile'ish. Him texting a 14 year old that is not related to him is very disturbing to say the least.

  • Shanese

    But still. She is 14. She is a minor and she has a few years to go before she hits 18. Her parents have pulled her out of school cos she’s busy working on stranger things and bringing money in. I wouldn’t want my daughter talking to no 30 something year old rapper regardless of who he is. She is a child and she doesn’t even have boobs yet. Probably doesn’t even get her period yet. She has a long way to go

  • Shanese

    Its weird

  • Alextra Ballard

    Nahhh, ion think I'm gullible.... I just think its inappropriate. to Drake it might be innocent, but this girl is truly infatuated. Now she is out here defending their relationship.

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    Pedophilia IS a real world problem as well as human trafficking. What does a 34 yr old man have in common with a 14yr old girl? Drake is satanic. OVO is just a play on OTO. Look it up. Bohemian Grove Owl..human sacrificing..it’s as clear as day. And shorty was playing an abused mind control slave in stranger things...they hide shit in PLAIN sight.

  • Reenaface

    Drake has the complexion for the protection, the lighter to pale that your skin tone is, the more stuff gets overlooked. He's not R Kelly black and he is backed by the Jewish mafia. White girls are used to doing just what the hell they want to do and they talk to and treat their parents like shit. *Refer to today's story about the mother getting arrested for taking away her daughter's cellphone for further reference*.

  • Reenaface

    Drake wears that owl on all of his shirts. Good observation about Millie Bobbi Brown playing a monarch slave in Stranger Things. I think she's adorable in real life but her innocence will be ruined by the beast that is Hollywood. I've seen pics of her doing the eye of Horus. Drake is a handler and possible monarch child too you can usually spot them in Hollywood.

  • the chosen one

    A 14 yr old and 31 yr old have nothing in common. R. Kelly did similar crap with Aaliyah.

  • Applebum

    I don’t put anything pass these hollyweird weirdos. A lot of times when they visits these patients its not because they care and making wishes come true, they are actually abusing these kids. Remember Jimmy Savile who people thought was doing all this charity works with kids at these hospitals for over 30+ years, and he was exposed for abusing and molesting these sick kids right there in their rooms.

  • Applebum

    Facts.

  • Applebum

    That’s a must in hollyweird. They mess with kids. It’s nastier than you could ever imagine.

  • Applebum

    Really? I don’t think I know about that one. I’m going to research on it. Wow.

  • JaneSmith100

    He probably likes her but he's waiting 4 years.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I don't understand how people can be so dismissive when it comes to stuff like this. Chiile, I stay woke!

  • ViolettaBliss

    She's too young to understand that she is being groomed. Drake has enough on his plate to leave her on the back burner on low simmer until she is legal.

  • ViolettaBliss

    Let's get real here there is actually no reason for a 31 year old man to be texting a 14 year old girl that is not his family member. He may not be trying to get at her now but in 3 years she will be 17......

  • Strip Club Veteran

    I guarantee when she turns 18 he'll be dating her.

    i saw it and i'm mad i see you bring it up cus now i'm mad all over again like you lil yt biiiiiiiish i never wanted to snatch a child up so fast. you better RESPEKKKKK regina and ALL that she has done in this industy for longer than TWICE the amount of time you been ALIVE little damn girl!!! UGGGHHH lol

  • Kita Williams

    so i just perused through her instagram....she literally look like she in her damn 30s. like IN her 30s. A lot of her pics remind me of Natalie Portman. pretty girl but ummm......she is looking GROWNT!

  • Elle

    Why is a 31 one year OLD giving boy advice to a 14 years old girl????!!! That is really Disturbing. I understand she's a teen and her reaction to criticism is normal for a girl her age but Ms. Brown if you want people to STAY OUT OF YOUR BUSINESS then Learn to Keep Such information private.

  • Elle

    I'm in my 30's and when I was her age I looked far younger than she does. She is pretty indeed but she comes across as Fame obsessed and dating that thing she dated ( that musically kid with ZERO talent and famous well for NOTHING other than harassing young fans for nudes) has damaged her credibility in the eyes of many, other than her rabbid stans.

  • Elle

    EWWW.

  • Elle

    who are you talking about?? Millie B. Brown or someone else?

  • Elle

    Older?? A man who can literally be her father bc he's almost 20 years older!! You must be one those Rabbid stans where the Little "Queen" can do No Wrong. My ass who've been whipped if I was caught texting a man that old at that ge. But ofc she's a "celebrity" so let's give her a free pass. TBH if I didn't know who she was I would think she was at least 24 or 25.
