Drake took the time to mention some circulating "rumours" during a recent concert, days after the purported leak of a viral X-rated video.
The Canadian rapper, 37, has been the subject of social media this week after a video allegedly showing him engaged in a sex act was released online.
It is still unclear whether the footage is genuine, with concerns linked to the recent AI-generated "deepfake" pornographic photographs of Taylor Swift that surfaced on social media last month.
On Thursday (8 February), during a pause between songs during the Nashville leg of his Big As The What tour, the "Rich Flex" artist addressed the audience directly.
Drake addressed the audience at Bridgestone Arena, stating, "I know y'all have been waiting on me to address this, so the rumours are true...
My father is here tonight!"That's what you've all been waiting for, right?" he said, to which the audience responded with cheers.
Drake has not made a direct mention to the video since it was posted online on Tuesday (6 February), nor has he stated whether it is true or not.
The closest acknowledgement of the footage occurred just hours after it went viral, when the "One Dance" musician tweeted a photo that appeared to be taken from the cockpit of a plane.
