Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, was in the news a lot this year as Amanda Bynes kept dropping his name in tweets as she melted down, so we figured this week we might as well take a look at his alleged dating history and see if she’s in it. Being a relatively young man at just 26, Drake hasn’t had a lot of time to date a lot of famous women (or in Amanda’s case: murder anyone’s vagina), but he is a singer and the famous celebrity ladies do love a musician so surely he’s still dated his fair share, right? Read on to find out.
