She met Wayne while serving as a backup dancer for Ne-Yo during the Up Close and Personal Tour (which featured the rapper along with Chris Brown) and eventually passed the rapper Bangladesh's beat for "A Milli," which became a huge street hit for the Young Money leader.
Soon after, Shanell joined Lil Wayne's artist enclave and began recording, touring and performing her single "Play in My Band" as well as co-writing songs for Wayne.
Hailey and Drake even looked like a couple, according to onlookers who were at the bash.
“[She’s] someone I really love,” he told the publication.
“We spend a lot of time together.” Baldwin and the 22-year-old pop star first sparked the dating rumors earlier this year.
Another source told that “nothing is going on romantically” between the couple and that the blonde beauty is “still very much in love with” Justin Bieber despite the fact that the two are on a break at the moment.
Even sources told that the couple is “dating super casually” and “taking it slow,” despite the fact that Drake’s “really into her.” Unfortunately, his public displays of affection won’t be enough to win Hailey over.
"First I was dating him, then I was his girlfriend, then we were getting married, then we were settling down and now I'm pregnant. ' I don't care about the rumors, but I just want people to know that I'm not pregnant.
It's so foolish we haven't paid it any attention." So what of the widely circulated photo where the two are hugging? The singer/songwriter says that the dating rumors were fine, but the pregnancy chatter was not. I've got an album coming out, I'm a dancer, I'm in shape and children are not anywhere in my future." Lil Wayne agrees.
The two were previously seen heading to the Hollywood hot spot together on their date on May 31, shortly after they reportedly hooked up at a Memorial Day party.
Apparently things are going so well, that the aspiring model gave Drake the necklace as something to remember her by.
Even though it seems like the “Hotline Bling” rapper is into her, the couple is reportedly taking things slow at the moment. Gigi Hadid wore a “Zayn” necklace as well as a “Z” pendant.
