    After raising eyebrows by texting 14-year-old Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, the Canadian rapper landed in the centre of another controversy involving his interaction with an underage girl after a clip from his 2010 concert resurfaced on social media.

    The inspiration behind the Kiki challenge, Drake, is now making headlines for a more controversial cause as the Canadian rapper has come under fire for appearing to be flirting with a 17-year-old fan onstage. The footage, reportedly from a 2010 concert, which recently emerged on Twitter and gained thousands of re-tweets and comments, shows Drake, then 24, dancing with a female fan, kissing her on the neck and putting his arm on her chest to the cheers of the crowd.

    ​“Y’all know I get carried away again, I get in trouble for s—t”, he said before asking the girl about her age.

    When she answered that she was 17, the crowd erupted while the rapper added “I can’t go to jail yet, man! Seventeen? Why you look like that? You thick.”

    “I don’t know if I should feel guilty or not but I had fun. I like the way your breasts feel against my chest”, Drake is heard to say before kissing the girl on both cheeks and forehead as well as giving her a peck on the lips.

    Although the age of consent in Colorado, where this show took place, is 17, Drake’s behaviour at the concert received backlash online.

    Some were grossed out and reacted sarcastically.

    ​Others were outraged and disgusted, using stronger language to show their feelings.

    Drake’s fans also received a fair share of online roasting.

    ​Others drew parallels with R&B singer R Kelly, suspected of abusing underage girls for years. A show about this recently aired.

    ​There were those claiming that Drake had been already spotted getting extremely close to teen girls.

    ​However, some defended the singer.

    Incidentally, just this September 32-year-old Drake came under fire after Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, 14, revealed that she’s friends with the rapper, who helps her with advice about boys.

    “I met him in Australia, and he’s honestly so fantastic — a great friend and a great 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’”, the young actress told Access Opens at the 2018 Emmy Awards.
