Years after the release of Drake’s song “Search and Rescue,” which featured Kim Kardashian, rumors of a romantic connection between the two resurfaced. The fact that Drake name-dropped Kim in his lyrics only added fuel to the speculation.
Kim and Drake faced dating rumors several months ago, but the reality TV star has consistently denied them, even commenting on an Instagram post, stating, “Never happened. End of story.”
However, during the third season of “The Kardashians,” Kim revisited the speculation. The beef between Drake and Kanye, who was previously married to Kim in 2014 but has since divorced her, seems to be resolved as they posed together for a photo at Drake’s home in November 2021.
While Kim has spent time with Drake in the past, she clarifies that Kanye West, the person who should have protected her the most, was the one who started the rumor about her having an affair with Drake. She reveals that he publicly accused her throughout their marriage.

In addition, Drake’s track “Search and Rescue” features Kim discussing her divorce from Kanye. The cover art even depicts Drake wearing a motorcycle helmet next to a woman who bears a striking resemblance to Kim.
Furthermore, an audio clip of Kim talking about her breakup with Kanye is featured in Drake’s song. This audio was first heard on the 2021 series finale of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” where Kim expresses her determination to find happiness.
Kim shares with her mother that Kanye not only started the rumor but also asks for approval regarding what she says about him on the show. She admits that Kanye’s behavior has been problematic, causing her stress and worsening her psoriasis condition.
With Kim Kardashian setting the record straight and attributing the dating rumors to Kanye West’s actions, the speculation surrounding her relationship with Drake can finally be addressed.
