Drake has reportedly been mentoring his new girlfriend Johanna Leia's son about dealing with fame.

The Hotline Bling hitmaker is believed to have met the 40-year-old model at a high school basketball game, and the 34-year-old rapper has since been giving her son, Amari Bailey, guidance on dealing with fame, TMZ reports.

He's a top prospect on the team and will be heading to UCLA next year. The Canadian rapper is reportedly giving the teen advice on 'finances, fame and life, in general.' 

The website reports that Drake and Amari have hung out one-on-one and all three of them have spent time together at Drake's house. 

Earlier this week, the Grammy-winning songwriter notably secured the entire Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for a romantic date night with Leia.

The musician was spotted wining and dining the dark-haired beauty at a table for two along the baseball field on Thursday, after renting out the entire stadium for a romantic dinner date with the model.

ABC7 helicopter reporter Chris Christi tweeted about the news after spotting the two while flying overhead.

In photos shared by the reporter, Leia was seen wearing a Dodgers jersey while the God's Plan hitmaker donned his signature sweater look.

Their table had champagne glasses and various vases filled with flowers on it.

Drake – who has three-year-old son Adonis with Sophie Brussaux – has kept his love life out of the spotlight in recent years, but his most high-profile romance was with fellow musician Rihanna.

The couple broke things off in 2016, and although it was claimed at the time they could have rekindled their romance, the pair stayed separated.

A source told E! Online at the time: 'Rihanna and Drake are seeing other people at the moment.'

Starting strong: Drake and Leia reportedly met at a high school basketball game; the pair and Michael B. Jordan are seen watching Amari play in June

Another one: The Grammy-winning songwriter also shares a child named Adonis with his former partner Sophie Brussaux; the father-son duo is seen at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards in May

The insider also pointed out that the couple was 'not exclusive anymore. They still love each other, but their schedules have gotten in the way.'

'Anything can change between them though, for better or worse. They are still in each other's lives,' they added.

However, the pair still have a permanent reminder of their romance as they recently had matching shark tattoos.

The etchings were inspired by a date they went on to a Toronto aquarium, where the One Dance singer bought his girlfriend a toy shark as a memento.

Meanwhile, Drake previously admitted he had been 'in love' with Rihanna for years.

Presenting the S&M hitmaker with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2016, he said of the brunette beauty: 'She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old.'

Double trouble: The former couple both share matching shark tattoos that were inspired by one of their dates; they are seen performing at the Brit Awards in 2016

The performer went on to express that he was grateful for her companionship and noted that he saw he as a role model for his own career. 

'She's one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I've looked up to her, even though she's younger than me,' he said. 

Drake concluded by noting that Rihanna was 'a living, breathing legend in our industry, ladies and gentlemen.'

Drake Has Date Night At Empty Dodger Stadium With Johanna Leia

TMZ 10 July, 2021 - 02:04pm

Drake took full advantage of the Dodgers being out of town Thursday ... setting up a date on L.A.'s field with Johanna Leia -- and the whole thing looked like it was taken right out of a Drake song.

While Justin Turner and the boys were in Miami wrapping up their series with the Marlins ... the rapper took advantage of the opportunity to borrow their arena for a cozy date night -- and it's clear, he balled out for the occasion.

A helicopter camera spotted the 34-year-old at a table with Leia near the dugout on the third-base side of the field ... and there was a white table cloth, multiple dishes, flowers and even a personal bartender for the couple.

In fact, the two appeared to have gotten personalized Dodgers jerseys for the occasion ... with Leia rockin' hers right at the table!

Only fitting basketball would bring new love to Drake's life, right??

Drake rents out Dodger Stadium for date with model Johanna Leia

Page Six 10 July, 2021 - 02:04pm

He’s in his feelings again.

Drake rented out Dodger Stadium for an intimate date with model Johanna Leia in Los Angeles Thursday.

Drizzy, 34, was spotted wining and dining Leia, 40, at a table for two along the baseball field, where the pair sat side by side with a bartender stationed nearby.

“@DRAKE ON A DATE? Randomly just flew over this cozy couple enjoying a private dinner along the third base line at an empty Dodger Stadium from #Air7HD@ABC7#Drizzy,” ABC7 helicopter reporter Chris Christi tweeted early Friday.

In photos shared by Christi, Leia was seen wearing a Dodgers jersey while the rapper rocked his signature sweater look. Their table had champagne glasses and various vases filled with flowers on it.

A former star of Lifetime’s “Bringing Up Ballers,” Leia is the mother of Sierra Canyon High School basketball player and UCLA commit Amari Bailey, a teammate of LeBron James’ son Bronny James.

And on Friday the Lakers star even tweeted his congratulations to Bailey for being named “California Mr. Basketball,” writing, “Congrats Nephew!!! Proud of you kid.”

Interestingly enough, Drake often attends games with LeBron, 36, to cheer on 16-year-old Bronny, which is perhaps how the hip-hop star first crossed paths with Leia.

She describes herself as an “entrepreneur” on her Instagram page.

Laia shared a cryptic message to her Instagram Story after news broke of her date with Drake, re-posting a quote that stated, “Take time to do what makes your soul happy.”

This isn’t the first time the Grammy winner has pulled out all the stops for a special date night.

In 2018, Drake treated a woman to a private dinner at RPM Italian in Washington, DC.

He was previously linked to NBC Sports reporter Rosalyn “Ros” Gold-Onwude, though their romance seemed to fizzle out quickly in 2017. He’s also been romantically involved with Rashida Jones, Tyra Banks and Rihanna.

Drake and Johanna Leia Have Cozy Date Alone at Dodger Stadium

Vanity Fair 09 July, 2021 - 03:31pm

Rarely has anyone been so guaranteed to get to first base.

Rapper and actor Drake (also known as a succinct visual representation of the sentiment, “I do not like that, but I do like this”) upped his dating game to the major leagues on Thursday night. He and model Johanna Leia were spotted alone at a romantic table along the third base line at Dodger Stadium by a Los Angeles news chopper. Nearby was what looked like a full bar and a man ready to serve them.

The pair also had custom-made Dodgers jerseys, hers saying “Johanna” and his saying “The Boy.” Both had the number 8. (The current Dodger with the number 8 is Zach McKinstry, who is likely honored by this or very worried.) 

The Dodgers organization told ABC 7 that “Drake made a sizable donation to the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation in order to make his Dodger Stadium dinner date a reality.”

Drake and Leia first started appearing in public in June. She is a former cast member of the reality show Bringing Up Ballers. Her son is the UCLA-bound high school basketball star Amari Bailey and is teammates with LeBron James’s son, Bronny. Page Six has theorized that Drake, who has been known to cheer on Bronny with his chum LeBron at games, may have met Leia at one of Sierra Canyon’s high school matches.

Drake was really in his feelings for date night.

The 34-year-old hip hop star was spotted on a romantic dinner at a very unique location - Dodger Stadium - which he reportedly rented out for a night with model Johanna Leia, on Friday.

A local ABC7 news helicopter first noticed the over-the-top occasion and tweeted out pictures and video of the couple seated at an ornate table with a full bar and bartender set up nearby.

While the Los Angeles Dodgers were playing in Miami, Florida against the Marlins, their legendary baseball stadium was put to use by the Canadian Grammy winner. 

The news chopper snapped a photo of Drake and the social media influencer sitting at a large white table covered with several bouquets of flowers with dinner plates in front of them and glasses of rose champagne.

Drake appeared to be wearing a neutral toned sweater while Johanna opted to wear her new custom Dodger's jersey with slicked back hair and a long braid. 

The beauty and the Hotline Bling singer were gifted with team jerseys with their names on the back for their date.

The table was set up close to the dugout near the third-base side of the field and a tuxedo clad bartender stood a little ways off behind a white bar that was erected for the night. 

'The pair were spotted just after 11pm Thursday night dining,' an insider told The Sun. 'They were completely alone on the ball field with the exception of a well-appointed butler.'

Dodgers Stadium field is usually only rented out for major events or productions. According to MLB.com, the capacity for the field is between 400-500 guests.  

While there is no price listed on the website for renting the iconic space, it's believed to cost well over $25,000, which was an estimate made in 2002 according to the LA Times.

Drake and Johanna were spotted together last month at the same high school varsity basketball match to watch the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers and its leading stars, Johanna's son Amari Bailey and Bronny James.

The God's Plan singer was seated courtside next to actor and friend Michael B. Jordan with the model/actress cheering on her son to his right.

Sadly, their team lost out on a place in the regional final and Drake was spotted consoling Amari with a hug after the game.
