Captioning the picture, 'blessed to have my security be my +1 at the netflix party', Millie showed off her cheeky side by calling Drake her security and once again showed off her budding friendship with the 'In My Feelings' rapper.
It was a surprise to the world when Drake dropped his latest album 'Scorpion' without any notice, but Millie Bobby Brown was one of the lucky few who appeared to know all about it as she was gifted her very own 'Scorpion' merch.
Sharing a picture of herself wearing her Scorpion jacket a whole month before the album was released in June 2018, Millie Bobby Brown captioned the snap 'thank u @champagnepapi for this sick jacket!! tour starts in June! and i'm sooo excited to catch a show! Love youuuuu'
