Drake Takes Sports Reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude as His Date to NBA Awards
By Jackie Willis
Drake couldn't help but brag about his date to the 2017 NBA Awards in New York City.
On Monday night, the 30-year-old rapper hit the red carpet with sports reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, who is often seen on the sidelines at Golden State Warriors games. "My stunning date for the evening," Drake captioned a photo of himself dressed in a white tuxedo next to Gold-Onwude, who sported a skintight orange, strapless dress.
In an interview with Bauce magazine earlier this month, the Emmy-winning reporter spoke about her love life, and squashed rumors that she was in a relationship with Warriors MVP, Kevin Durant. "This year, there was a rumor I’m dating Kevin Durant. I’m not. I would not date any player on our (Warriors) team," she said. "It’s better professionally and as far as your rapport with the guys in the locker room to not do that. I take that seriously, but it comes with the territory."
During an interview with W magazine in 2015, Drake -- who has been romantically linked to Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez in the past -- also shared his dating deal breakers, which surprisingly involved his hometown. "Most people I know stay in Toronto. I plan to spend the rest of my life there. The talk, the smell, the sound that comes out of that city is home to me," he said. "When I think about the girls I want to get romantic with, it's a girl from Toronto who knows what I'm talking about when we drive around the city."
In March, Drake dropped his More Life album, and fans speculated that a few of the lyrics were about his former fling with Lopez. Check out the possible clues that he's rapping about the 47-year-old "Booty" singer:
