​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.


"So, I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn't want to go tell the world that that was my son and it wasn't."

Referring to his son's blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin, he added: "If you see my son you understand why."

Drake continued: "He's a stunning child you know, with the brightest blue eyes and at the time I was like 'I don't know'.


"It actually wasn't until a week before the album came out that I got confirmation that that was definitely my son.

"It took me two more solid [DNA] tests with two different companies."

Brussaux has also spoken out following Drake's emotional Instagram post, joking that the reason behind Adonis' appearance is that she and her ex are secretly natural blondes.


She wrote: "Thanking God everyday for blessing me with such a beautiful family and amazing friends. I wish that much on everyone, keep safe and positive, sending a lot of positive vibes to the world."

Referring to the last photo in the carousel, which had been Photoshopped to show she and Drake with bleached-blonde hair, Brussaux jokingly added: "PS: all this time you thought @champagnepapi was dark-haired... but Adonis's parents are really blonde."
