Drake has reportedly been mentoring his new girlfriend Johanna Leia’s son about dealing with fame.
The Hotline Bling hitmaker is believed to have met the 40-year-old model at a high school basketball game, and the 34-year-old rapper has since been giving her son, Amari Bailey, guidance on dealing with fame, TMZ reports.
Amari plays for the the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers alongside Bronny James – the son of LeBron James.

He’s a top prospect on the team and will be heading to UCLA next year. The Canadian rapper is reportedly giving the teen advice on ‘finances, fame and life, in general.’
The website reports that Drake and Amari have hung out one-on-one and all three of them have spent time together at Drake’s house.
Earlier this week, the Grammy-winning songwriter notably secured the entire Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for a romantic date night with Leia.
The musician was spotted wining and dining the dark-haired beauty at a table for two along the baseball field on Thursday, after renting out the entire stadium for a romantic dinner date with the model.
ABC7 helicopter reporter Chris Christi tweeted about the news after spotting the two while flying overhead.

Their table had champagne glasses and various vases filled with flowers on it.
Drake – who has three-year-old son Adonis with Sophie Brussaux – has kept his love life out of the spotlight in recent years, but his most high-profile romance was with fellow musician Rihanna.
The couple broke things off in 2016, and although it was claimed at the time they could have rekindled their romance, the pair stayed separated.
A source told E! Online at the time: ‘Rihanna and Drake are seeing other people at the moment.’

The insider also pointed out that the couple was ‘not exclusive anymore. They still love each other, but their schedules have gotten in the way.’
‘Anything can change between them though, for better or worse. They are still in each other’s lives,’ they added.
However, the pair still have a permanent reminder of their romance as they recently had matching shark tattoos.

The etchings were inspired by a date they went on to a Toronto aquarium, where the One Dance singer bought his girlfriend a toy shark as a memento.
Meanwhile, Drake previously admitted he had been ‘in love’ with Rihanna for years.
Presenting the S&M hitmaker with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2016, he said of the brunette beauty: ‘She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old.’

The performer went on to express that he was grateful for her companionship and noted that he saw he as a role model for his own career.
‘She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her, even though she’s younger than me,’ he said.
Drake concluded by noting that Rihanna was ‘a living, breathing legend in our industry, ladies and gentlemen.’
