Everyone’s favorite emotional rapper Drake knows how to keep people on their toes.
Just a few weeks after dropping an unannounced mix tape, ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,’ on Feb. 12, the 28-year-old made another debut of sorts!
While vacationing in Australia earlier this week, he was photographed kissing a woman, named Bernice Burgos, believed to be his new girlfriend.

So who is the lucky lady? We gathered everything we know about her, check it out!
Bernice is a 34-year-old model and bartender from the Bronx. Apparently she’s known the rapper for a while, as she has a picture with him as far back as 16 months ago — though, at the time, she called him her “homeboy” in the caption.
She also takes a lot of selfies, because of course she does.
She was once a video girl, but it’s totally no big deal.
Like, who hasn’t been flown to Anguila and St. Maarten to shoot a Rick Ross music video? Did we mention Drake is featured on the track? Not that we’re surprised, of course…
She’s been name-dropped by — wait for it! — Drake himself! In his verse on Romeo Santos’ song “Odio,” the former ‘Degrassi’ star spits, “And you look like you drawn by an artist/No you – you look like Bernice and Yaris/But both put together, those are some girls that I know from back home.”
The song came out January 2014 — but, like we said, these two are old pals!

Right. Here’s where things get dicey… She was once arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
According to ‘The New Jersey Newsroom,’ the charges came after a December 2010 incident during which she allegedly struck a 14-year-old female acquaintance.
