“We built a genuine bond”: Drake shares emotional tribute to young fan who died

"You know how much I loved you"

Drake has posted an emotional message about a young fan who died.

The Canadian rapper took to Instagram yesterday (November 4) to pay tribute to Kay, who he met through the Make-A-Wish program.

Drake said the pair had formed what he called “a genuine bond”.

“Gonna miss you a whole lot,” he wrote underneath a picture of him and Kay taken during one of their visits.

“We met through Make-A-Wish and we built a genuine bond you would text me and check on me while I was on tour and tell me positive things and share your dreams and goals.

“I am crying in this pic but it was tears of joy cause we just prayed for you with your father,” he continued.

“I am sorry I missed your text on my birthday that’s eating my soul right now but you know how much I loved you and was looking forward to seeing you after tour.”

In other news, Drake has accused a Vancouver casino of racially profiling him.

As Spin reports, he slammed Parq Vancouver for preventing him from gambling. “Parq Casino is the worst run business I have ever witnessed,” the rapper wrote on social media. “Profiling me and not allowing me to gamble when I had everything they originally asked me for.”
