Drake‘s father, Dennis Graham and his business partner, David Weintraub have already held meetings with various networks to pitch a dating show and Vice and WE tv are reportedly the front-runners to land the show.
According to TMZ, Graham is expected to sign a deal sometime next week. The show will not only show Graham as he searches for love, but it will also give fans an insight into his life of luxury and fame as he enjoys the benefits of being Drake’s dad.
Drake and his dad have a complicated relationship and recently fell out after Graham claimed the star told him he lied about their relationship to “sell records.”
“I always been with Drake. I talk to him, if not every day, then every other day. We really got into a deep conversation about that,” alleges Graham. “I said, ‘Drake, why are you saying all of this different stuff about me? Man, this is not cool.’ He [said], ‘Dad, it sells records.'”
Drake has opened up about his dad in songs like “Look What You’ve Done” in the past as he referenced having an absentee father, but Graham claimed the truth was very different.
Drake reacted to the comments as he took to his Instagram Story and wrote: “Woke up today so hurt man. My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him. It’s sad when family gets like this, but what can we really do … that’s the people we are stuck with …,” he continued. “Every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.”
