Drake took time out of his packed schedule to fly down to his father’s hometown in order to take his young cousin and her date out on the town. The occasion was cousin Jalaah’s senior prom, which was documented in a photo from the Canadian superstar.


The 2017 Fairley High School prom might have been the hottest ticket in town this weekend with Drake crashing the party. While cameras were certainly snapping for Drizzy, Jalaah and her date dazzled as well in matching glitter gold outfits. The unnamed young man wore a matching glittery tie with his ensemble, while Jalaah wore a classy backless and sleeveless number as the perfect complement. TMZ reports that Drake paid for the matching outfits, a Rolls Royce to drive them to the prom in style, and an afterparty at Hard Rock for 400 friends. He reportedly did not perform. 


This isn’t the first time Drake has shown up to support his cousin, now 17. Last year, she was crowned her school’s homecoming queen and the Toronto native gushed with pride.


“I love my cousin more than anything in the world…Homecoming Queen everything fleeky af ???? you a star girl enjoy it love you,” read the caption for the photo posted last October.

Jalaah hasn’t hidden her connection to her famous cousin (would you?) and posted an older photo of them together back in 2013 that was quite cute as well.
