Drake’s Beverly Hills home was recently broken in by a man claiming to be the rapper’s son.

An employee at the LA home reportedly spotted the 23-year-old intruder near the property’s pool on July 15 and immediately alerted police. Upon arrival, the man told authorities that the 35-year-old rapper his was father.

Given that such a truth would have meant that Drake became a father at the age of 12, the claim was quickly dismissed and the man arrested for misdemeanour trespassing.

Further details are yet to emerge, but it’s believed that the man did not make it inside the property.

The man’s brush with the law comes days after Drake’s representatives were forced to confirm that he had not been arrested in Sweden.

Representatives for the star told The Hollywood Reporter that rumours circulating on social media last week (July 14) were just that. Speculation was rife that Drake had been detained by local police at a Stockholm nightclub, with the hashtag #freedrake being used online.

The Grammy award-winning rapper, singer, and producer was in fact in his hotel in the Swedish capital and had not been arrested.

Last month Drake released his house-inspired seventh album Honestly, Nevermind. He appeared to respond to the seemingly mixed reception of his new album by saying in a video that it’s “all good” if people don’t “get it” yet.
