Drake ‘cut Jennifer Lopez from album after failed romance’

March 20, 2017 GMT

Drake reportedly cut Jennifer Lopez from his new album after their romance failed.

The 30-year-old rap star recently enjoyed a brief fling with the ‘Jenny from the Block’ star - but Drake decided to cut their collaboration from his new album ‘More Life’ after Jennifer broke off their romance and started a relationship with baseball legend Alex Rodriguez.

Jennifer, 47, was poised to appear on the track ‘Get It Together’ but the female verse was instead recorded by Jorja Smith after their fling ended, according to the Daily Star newspaper.

Despite this, Drake recently hinted that he is not quite over the star.

On the song ‘Free Smoke’ on his new album ‘More Life’, Drake raps: “I drunk text J-Lo/ Old number, so it bounce back.”

Jennifer, meanwhile, has rubbished claims she only dates younger men, following her on/off romance with Drake and a previous long-term romance with Casper Smart, 29.


She explained: “First of all, stop! I don’t date younger men. I don’t think men have to be younger. It’s not about that. I just meet people, and if I go out with them, I go out with them. And if I like them, I like them, and if I don’t, I don’t. It’s about the person, you know what I mean? It’s about who they are. It has nothing to do with age!

“There’s this thing, because I dated beau [her backing dancer Casper Smart], and he was younger, and he was the first guy I ever dated who was younger than me, but then I got labelled right away.

“For me, it isn’t [about age]. If they’re older, they’re older. If they’re younger, they’re younger. It depends on whether or not I’m attracted to their spirit, their soul, their whatever ... their energy.”
