Last February, German-American supermodel, actress, designer, TV producer, and author Heidi Klum visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show for a fun, lighthearted game of “Who’d You Rather?” Little did she know that her answer to a question would spark months of juicy drama.
When asked to choose between Drake and many other celebrities, Klum repeatedly insisted she was “DTF with Drake!”
A couple months later, Drake apparently heard about his success on the show and decided to reach out to Klum via text.
In a surprise move, she ghosted him!
Heidi Klum really ghosted Drake ????

In September, Klum returned to Ellen to explain why she’d left Drake high and dry just after showering him with her praise:
Between playing “Who’d You Rather?” and receiving Drake’s text, Klum met the man who would become her fiancé. It was simply an issue of bad timing, but Drake didn’t know that at the time.
When she finally did reach out to apologize, Drake sent a single emoji in response, which Klum imitated:

Klum doesn’t have any regrets, however. After all, it took Drake months to text her.
“Sorry, Drake! Snooze you lose! You know what I mean? He was basically a week too late. I don’t remember when it was, and I didn’t have his number; he didn’t have my number.”
She went on:
“Someone who I know knows him, and I guess he asked to have my number, and then he texted me. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh. This is so weird!’ But I never texted him back, because I found the love of my life.”
Twitter couldn’t help but cringe at the awkward situation:
Can’t blame him for trying

Some things simply aren’t meant to be. In another world, Dreidi (Heike?) are happily married and living a perfect life together…but certainly not in this one.
