Millie Bobby Brown has spoken out following criticism of her friendship with Drake.
The 14-year-old has been open about her adorable friendship with the rapper and recently said that he often gives her advice on boys.
The Stranger Things actress also revealed to Access that Drake texted her “I miss you so much,’ recently, to which she responded: “I miss you more.”
Many fans were unsure about the friends’ relationship and took to social media to criticise their friendship.
Millie was not happy with the negativity surrounding her and the 31-year-old’s friendship and stated on Instagram: “Why u gotta make a lovey friendship ur headline? U guys are weird… for real.”
“I’m lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance. I’m very blessed to have amazing people in my life. U don’t get to choose that for me,” the young actress continued.
“It’s nice to have people who understand what I do. Now get back to talking about real problems in this world other than my friendships… jeez.”
Millie then thanked her fans, as she wrote: “To all the supporters: I love you guys. Thank you for supporting me. Many thanks to u guys. Sending my love to wherever u are in the world.”
Many fans of both Drake and Millie have openly criticised the pair’s friendship as they labelled it “creepy” due to the celebs’ 17-year age difference.
Some fans have acted negatively towards the friendship due to Drake’s alleged romance with an 18-year-old model.

Drake is creepy af for texting Millie Bobby Brown and taking her out to dinner multiple times. She’s 14 & he’s in his 30s. That is so disturbing.
