KYLIE Jenner and Drake are once again facing dating rumors this week after years of speculation about their relationship.
The KUWTK star, 24, and rapper, 35, have been friends for years, with Drake even performing atKylie's 16th birthday party in 2013.
Kylie – who is heavily pregnant with her second child with Travis Scott – has been linked to Drake numerous times over the years.
The Certified Lover Boy rapper performed at her sweet 16 and there are social media photos of him kissing her on the cheek at the bash.
They first sparked dating rumors in 2019 after she split from Travis.
US Weekly claimed at the time that their relationship was more than platonic with a source revealing that their friendship "did take a romantic turn."
“Kylie and Drake’s friendship did take a romantic turn recently," the source revealed, adding, “at his Halloween party, they were affectionate and clearly there together. They’ve been seeing each other romantically. He also showed up to [Kendall Jenner’s] birthday.”
There was never any official announcement from the pair and Kylie went on to rekindle her relationship with Travis while Drake was linked to model Imaan Hamman in February 2021.

In May 2020, they were back in the headlines after Drake reportedly called Kylie his "side piece" in an old song, a statement that she"wasn't surprised about," at the time.
Drake is also a friend of Kylie's baby daddy Travis and was seen performing at the 2021 Astroworld Festival.
The Toronto-born musician was also romantically linked to Kylie's sister Kim Kardashian, famously insinuating that they slept together in his song, In My Feelings – claims she later denied.
The Kylie and Drake dating rumors resurfaced this week after false claims made by a fake Instagram account pretending to be Tristan Thompson's baby mama Maralee Nicholls – who gave birth to the athlete's son last week.
The person behind the account wrote on their Instagram Stories: "You know Drake slept with Kylie last year but you aren’t man enough to tell Travis (Scott).
"There it is. Good night folks. More tomorrow."
Drake's rep confirmed to The Sun that the account is fake and that the allegations made are false.
Kylie and Travis are parents to their three-year-old daughter Stormi.
Despite seeming like a solid couple on social media and in public, they faced split rumors this week after a W Magazine writer claimed the duo haven't been together for two years.
The author wrote: "Travis and Kylie seemed very comfortable under the sheets, but even though they will soon have two children together – their daughter, Stormi, is three – they are not a couple, and haven't been in two years. They're a modern family!"
Kylie and Travis had posed for W Magazine with Stormi, but decided to scrap the piece in the wake of the Astroworld tragedy – although several copies were still mailed out.
Discussing the W Magazine's claims, a fan claimed in a TikTok video: "My friend worked this shoot and said they didn't talk to each other the whole time."
After the leak, Kylie's sister Khloe denied the split claims, writing on TikTok: "Wow I don't know why this magazine would write this but they are very much a couple."
Prior to her relationship with Travis, Kylie was linked to Jaden Smith and rapper Tyga.
Throughout his career, Drake has been linked to the likes of Imaan Hammam, Bella Harris, Malaika Terry, Sophie Brussaux, Serena Williams and Rihanna.
As of June 2021, he has been linked to model Johanna Leia after the two were spotted at the Sierra Canyon basketball game.
On July 8, Drake was also seen renting out Dodgers stadium for a private dinner.
