The Family Chantel has barely scratched the surface on Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno’s bitter divorce.
The two separated this spring. Pedro filed for divorce, then Chantel filed her response.
Now, reports say that famous Canadian rapper Drake has been sliding into Chantel’s DMs since she and Pedro split.
Is that really happening? A lot of people feel surprised, especially since Chantel would be so age-appropriate.
Media Take Out reports that Drake has been in Chantel’s DMs since this spring.
An inside source, allegedly an associate of Drake, shared: “Drake reached out.”
Apparently this was “to see how she was doing and where her head was at.”
“And,” the insider continued, “she responded.”
“They’ve been DMing each other back and forth,” the insider detailed.
“And,” the source teased, Chantel and Drake “are planning to meet up soon.”
The report says that Chantel was not eager for a rebound after the end of her marriage, which spanned half a decade.
However, that attitude may soon change.
Or, rather, Drake may end up changing it, the report explains.
“Drake has a way of wearing women down,” the insider described.
“They might not at first expect any romance with Champagne Papi,” the source explained.
“But before long,” the insider insisted, “it always ends up that way.”
We imagine that, even before the separation, Chantel could have used a “friend” as a welcome distraction.
The final months of their dying marriage were palpably miserable, full of fights, emotional isolation, and sadness.
It is easy to imagine Chantel responding favorably to some DMs from a celebrity, even a notorious one, as her life fell apart.
When it comes to timing, we should also consider where Drake’s head was early this year.
Rihanna announced her pregnancy to the world. As we all know, Drake has felt weirdly fixated on her, in ways that make her fans uncomfortable or even angry.
He unfollowed her on social media. Childish, we know, but it might make him more inclined to slide into someone’s DMs, you know?
Also, we know that Drake is a 90 Day Fiance fan.
If this story is legit, Chantel is not the first member of this franchise to be on the receiving end of a Drake DM or two.
But … is this true?
We could not help but notice that Media Take Out, the origin of the report, did not actually spell Chantel’s name correctly. Not even once.
Obviously, people make typos every day. And it’s very possible to be 100% right about someone without spelling their name correctly.
But … it’s fair to consider that a report may be off when the subject’s name has the wrong second vowel.
Our official theory is that we’ll give this report more weight if and when Chantel confirms it.
We’re not ruling it out. But we just don’t see any real evidence to substantiate the rumor. Not yet.
For now, we’re just watching this ugly divorce unfold.
