This Is What Happened When Drake Asked Heidi Klum Out Via Text
"Heidi, do you love me." - Drake (probably).
Here's the story: In February, a “very single” Heidi Klum appeared on the Ellen Show and played a round of “Who’d You Rather?” (which is exactly what it sounds like).
The model chose Canadian rapper Drake a record 9 times throughout the game, beating fellow heartthrobs like Brad Pitt, Harry Styles, Chance the Rapper, and Jake Gyllenhaal. Eventually, Drake was ousted by Joaquin Phoenix, but word of his impressive streak still made it back to the artist.
When the model returned to Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show on Tuesday, she thanked her host for making her play “Who’d You Rather?” on that fateful February day. She met her current boyfriend, Tom Kaulitz, just hours later.
"You put it out into the universe! You really did,” Klum gushed to DeGeneres.
Unfortunately, the stars didn’t quite align for Heidi and her rapper crush.
"You snooze you lose. [Drake] called, like, a week too late,” Klum shared. "Someone who I know knows him and he asked to have my number and then he texted me. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so weird!’ but then I never texted him back because I found the love of my life.”
So … not even a “taken, sry” for the “In My Feelings” crooner?
"Like, what do you say?” Klum wondered aloud. “You want to go out? And I’m like, ‘No.’ It’s better not to say anything. I’m embarrassed about it. Drake, I’m sorry I didn’t text you back.”
Somehow, we think the ever-romantic rapper won’t be too torn up about the missed connection — "God’s Plan," y’know? In the end, Heidi found her person.
"I went to the birthday party and there he was!” she told Ellen of meeting her 29-year-old musician beau. "It was to the point so bad when I couldn’t even look at him. You know when you’re attracted to someone so badly you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t even look at him.’ So, I had to sit next to him instead of across because then I would have had to look at him.”
