On Sunday night, she showed up to a Golden Globes afterparty that was DJ'd by Drake and fellow attendees say the rapper approached Rae. Rumor has it that he asked her to join him at another party later in the night.
According to E! News, Drake spotted Issa and "made his whole group stop so he could go talk to her." Then "he asked her if she wanted to come to the Netflix party with him." Unfortunately for Drake, sources at the party say Rae denied him, responding that "she was with all her friends" before walking away.
Another party guest says they saw Drake flirting with Rae. "He thinks Issa Rae is beautiful and talented," the attendee explains. "He would like to take her on date if he was given the opportunity. He talks highly of her talents to people."
Thursday evening, Rae responded to a tweet from E! that said she "turned down Drake." She had a correction to make and suggested a new headline that read: "Obsessed Fan Who Dedicated Entire Season to Artist Continues to Shamelessly Fangirl When She Sees Him at Party Later."
For what's it worth, while Rae took the time to reply to the rumor, she technically didn't deny that it happened.
She seemed pretty excited about seeing Drake at the party on Sunday night, even posting a video of herself calling him "Zaddy" as he was busy "z-jaying."
Later, Rae filmed a video of herself explaining how great her night was. She gushed, "I was at a party where Drake was the DJ, and I must say that he was a phenomenal DJ. He played all the correct tracks. The playlist was simply correct."
"I'm pleased," Rae added.
Stay tuned. We have a feeling this story isn't quite over yet.
