When you are an internationally famous celebrity at 14 years old, it is inevitable that you are going to have friends of all ages. But many still believe it is inappropriate when a friendship between an older man and younger girl is very close.
'Stranger Things' star Millie Bobby Brown revealed that her and 31-year-old rapper, Drake are best friends. During an interview at the Emmy Awards, Brown told Access Hollywood, "I love him … he’s honestly so fantastic. A great friend and a great role model. We text. We just texted the other day and he was like, ‘I miss you so much!’ and I was like ‘I miss you more!’"
When asked what the unlikely friends discuss, Brown said her and Drake talk, "About boys. He helps me. He’s great.” When pressed for more details, Brown said, “That stays in the text messages.”
Online commentators have taken to Twitter to criticize the age-gap between the friends. One user wrote, "Ummm, If she isn’t your little sister or daughter, I can’t think of too many reasons a man north of 30 should be texting a teenager." Another user chimed in to say, "Millie Bobby Brown is innocent and probably has crush, but Drake has no business texting her "I miss you so much."
