Drake (née Aubrey Graham) took to Instagram to share rare photos of his 2-year-old son Adonis Monday morning which set the internet ablaze — who is the boys’ mother Sophie Brussaux? And the quest to answer that question led us down a few drama-filled rabbit holes trying to decode rap lyrics that might give insight into his relationship with the mother of his son, but we’ll spare the convoluted he-said-she-said and tell you what we know…
Sophie Brussaux, 30, was born and raised in France and is a former porn star who used to go by the name Rosee Divine during her adult film career. Brussaux, however, has now turned to art and is going by the name Sophie B.

According to Brussaux, in the bio featured on her website, she is “an award-winning and published artist who combines her fascination for cultural & social paradigms with a love of colorful pop-art & symbolism.”
“Sophie is also the founder and artistic director of ArtsHelp, a not-for-profit organization that provides a publishing platform for artists of all arts globally, who are making a difference through their craft.”
“She has become renowned for her vivid use of acrylics, oils, spray paints, palette knife,” Sophie’s bio reads, “She has exhibited in formal and informal places ranging from art-loving nightclubs to museums in cities like NYC, Dubai, Toronto, London, Milan, Paris, and more.”
Drake and Braussaux reportedly met while he was in Amsterdam in 2017 and when first told he was to be a father the rapper didn’t deny the news but wasn’t so sure. A representative for Drake told E! News, “If it is Drake’s child, which he doesn’t believe it is, then he would do the right thing by the child.”
Months later Drake publicly announced he was, in fact, a father in an interview for the HBO Sports show The Shop saying, “I have a son, he’s a beautiful boy.”
Drake and Sophie’s son Adonis, now 2-years old, made his Instagram debut on his father’s IG account in a series of candid photos.
