Drake says Kanye West spilled the beans on his new son, Adidon.
On LeBron James’ The Shop on HBO, Drake said he saw stories online that had details of a conversation he had with Ye about relationship issues he was having with former porn star Sophie Brussaux, who is also the mother of his 12-month-old son. Drake said he also showed West photos of his little boy at that time.

“I tell him I’m having trouble with my son’s mother. We had a conversation,” Drake said, according to US magazine. “I wake up, and all these dates are out … Then the next two days, whatever, I wake up now to this text from him, passive like, ‘Yo, I love you brother.’”
Things went from bad to worse when Pusha T’s track “Infrared,” dropped, on West’s label, G.O.O.D. Music in May, insinuating that Drake’s latest album was written by Quentin Miller. West also produced Pusha T’s album.
“Then, the first album drops. And, of course, there’s a diss song toward me that you produced, that’s talking about writing?” Drake said. “I was just there with you as friends helping you, and now you’re dissing me. So I’m like, man, this is dark.”
Drake retaliated with his own track, “Duppy Freestyle,” in which he rapped about helping West to write his singles “Father Stretched My Hands” and “30 Hours” from 2016’s Life of Pablo.
Then it really got ugly. In “The Story of Adidon,” Pusha-T revealed that Drake had a baby boy and accused him of being a deadbeat dad: “Since you name-dropped my fiancée / Let ‘em know who you chose as your Beyoncé / Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother,” he raps in the first verse. “Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her / A baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rap / We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts / You are hiding a child, let that boy come home / Deadbeat motherf–ka, playin’ border control.”
“I knew something was going to come up about my kid, they had to add, like, the deadbeat thing to make it more appealing,” Drake said on The Shop, which was his first public interview about his child. Drake told LeBron James that he hopes to be able to share his side of the story with his son one day and that he harbors no bad feelings toward Brussaux.
“I do wanna be able to explain to my son what happened, but I don’t have any desire for him to like, not love his mother,” Drake told LeBron. “Or 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 continued: “I’m just really excited to be a great father. I have a son, he’s a beautiful boy … No matter what happens, I have an unconditional love for the mother of my child because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy.”
Last month, West apologized to Drake via Twitter, promising to come to a show during his Aubrey and the Three Migos tour.
