Heidi Klum apologized to Drake for ghosting him and his response is hilarious
We've all been ghosted before, and it sucks. You meet someone special, think they're interested in you, and then all of a sudden they cut off all contact. Sure, you can keep texting them, in the off-chance they got busy and forgot to respond. But most likely, they're not that into you. Better to just cut your losses and snuggle up with your sex robot.
Even rich famous people experience missed connections. Last February, Heidi Klum, 45-year-old supermodel and Queen of Halloween, played a round of "Who'd You Rather" on Ellen Degeneres' talk show. Photos of many handsome celebrities flashed on screen - Chadwick Boseman, Harry Styles, Brad Pitt - but Klum only had eyes for Drake. (Well, eventually she chose Joaquin Phoenix over Drake, but the Toronto rapper lasted a long time.)
Viewers wondered what happened afterwards - did Drake give her a call? Did they hook up? Are they getting married?! Finally, in September, Klum returned to Ellen's show to give us an update. She revealed that Drake sent thirsty texts asking her out, but she didn't respond to any of them. The timing was off, as the German-American model had just met the "love of her life", 29-year-old rocker Tom Kaulitz.
"Sorry, Drake! Snooze you lose!" said Klum. "You know what I mean? He was basically a week too late. I don't remember when it was, and I didn't have his number; he didn't have my number. Someone who I know knows him, and I guess he asked to have my number, and then he texted me. I was like, 'Oh, my gosh. This is so weird!' But I never texted him back, because I found the love of my life."
She explained, "Like, what do you say? Like, 'Do you want to go out?' And I’m like, 'No?' It’s better not to say anything." And just like that, Aubrey Graham got ghosted! She could have explained that she was in a relationship, or trolled him by texting, "new number who is this," but instead she completely ignored him. Sounds pretty harsh, right? Klum admitted she felt "embarrassed" about the incident, saying: "Drake, I’m sorry I didn’t text you back, but yeah, you’re cool. I still love your music."
In a new interview on Ellen, Klum revealed that she reached out to Drake to apologize. His response? A single emoji, which she helpfully acted out. That Drake; always in his feelings.
Well, that's an appropriate response to mixed signals. Heidi Klum gushes over Drake on TV, then won't respond to his text messages? Don't play games with his heart like that!
Anyway, it's nice to hear Drake is interested in older women, following that controversial video that resurfaced. At a 2010 concert in Colorado, he kissed and fondled a 17-year-old girl on stage. Upon discovering she's 17, he replied, "I don’t know whether I should feel guilty or not, but I had fun. I like the way your breasts feel against my chest. I just want to thank you." (Seventeen is the age of consent in Colorado, but still, a bit creepy, isn't it?)
