A source close to Athiya revealed how she and Drake became friends.
“Athiya was in London recently for a trip. She was out with friends and Drake spotted her at a club. He saw her, thought she was pretty. After that, he just added her on Instagram and got in touch with her. There is nothing more to this, this is exactly what happened.”
