According to Millie, the two speak all the time and oftentimes, Drizzy will give the 14-year-old dating advice.

Millie Bobby Brown is speaking out after fans expressed concern about the 14-year-old's friendship with 31-year-old Drake - with some even accusing the rapper of "grooming" the young star.

She continued: "I'm very blessed to have awesome people in my life".

The Stranger Things actress was not afraid to stand up for her friendship with Drake, 31, on September 20.

After being asked what kind of advice about boys he gives, she replied, "That stays in the text messages".

Drake hasn't said anything about the backlash. She took to Instagram to say that despite their 17-year age difference, they share a "lovely" camaraderie, and she wants their friendship kept out of the media spotlight!

However, it seems like Millie is setting the record straight with her post to Instagram. "U guys are weird... for real", she wrote on her Instagram stories. "Im lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance. U don't get to choose that for me", she said. I'm very blessed to have awesome people in my life. Their friendship goes back a while after both realized that they were fans of the other, reaching out and becoming close buds.

In an interview on the Emmy Awards red carpet in September 2018, Millie revealed that she and Drake had recently text each other, saying "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", he's great".

She added: 'He's a great friend and a great role mode.

The teen star has been vocal about body positivity and acceptance on social media.
