Drake Had Two DNA Tests Carried Out On Son To Make Sure He Was His
Yesterday Drake finally revealed photos of his son Adonis, writing on Instagram to say he was missing his 'beautiful family and friends' right now, and couldn't wait to reunite with them.
Adonis' existence was kept a secret until fellow rapper Pusha T released a diss track outing him for being a father, leading to Drake acknowledging his son on 2018 album Scorpion - rapping on one track called 'March 14': "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid."
Drake's ex Sophie Brussaux gave birth to Adonis in 2017 - but the 33-year-old rapper insisted on not one but two DNA tests to confirm whether or not he was the father.
In a resurfaced Rap Radar interview from December last year, Drake explained: "To be honest with you, I did a DNA test for my son and it came back to us and it said the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn't be 100 percent sure that that was my son or not.
