Rae's statement doesn't seem too convincing after she recorded a video of Drizzy, while he was on the 1's and 2's at the party. Drake was the DJ at the Netflix event and made sure the party was lit.
As Drake stood behind the DJ equipment, Rae recorded a video of him. She continuously called him "Zaddy."
Sources say that Drake has always admired Rae and speaks highly of her talents. The source also stated that if given the opportunity Drake would like to take her out on a date.
"He thinks Issa Rae is beautiful and talented," the attendee explains.
However, the Insecure star is denying the incident. She did mention that Drake was a great DJ.
Although, fans might be sad that Rae and Drake aren't a "thing," they will be happy to know that the actress is set to release two new shows on HBO. Rae will be releasing two new series, a comedy titled Him Or Her and Sweet Life.
