Oh, please. R. Kelly’s ex-girlfriend Azriel Clary took to Instagram to clap back at a fan who accused her of trying to hook up with rapper Drake after congratulating him on the success of his song “Tootsie Slide.” The 22-year-old set the user straight in the comments on Tuesday, April 7.

“They just mad cause I passed em’ like a test, yeah you hatin’ but you really just impressed,” the aspiring singer captioned a video of her skateboarding and then rapping to the 33-year-old’s latest hit. “CONGRATS to @champagnepapi for ‘TOOSIE SLIDE’ being number 1 on the charts,” she added.

“Girl, you [are] trying to shoot that lil shot at Drake,” the fan wrote with laughing emoji after Azriel gushed over the Grammy award-winning artist. Clearly annoyed by the accusation, she replied, “Girl, I’ve been doing what I do every day. Bye,” she said with several eye roll emoji.

Considering Azriel was already involved with a celebrity, it makes sense she would be hesitant to jump into another romance with someone in the public eye.

The up-and-comer moved out of R. Kelly’s Chicago Trump Tower condo in December 2019 after five years of dating. Since leaving the disgraced R&B singer, 53, Azriel has been extremely outspoken about their disturbing relationship. She alleged Kelly was “controlling” and “abusive” in an interview with The Sun in January.

“[I] could not do anything without him knowing. You have to ask him if you could go to the restroom, you would have to knock anytime you would enter or leave a room,” she told the outlet. “He controlled you to what you wore. Anything that was tight, hugging, revealing, was not allowed. You had to wear very loose clothing. The fact that I looked so young, I had to wear hats every time I left to go out.”
