Nick Cannon appeared as a guest for an episode of Complex’s Everyday Struggle last week (Aug. 30), where he described the theory of Drake and his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian having sexual relations as “Isn’t a far-fetched thought.”
However, Kim Kardashian had enough of the noise and quickly shut down rumors of an affair with the 6 God on Monday (Sept. 3).
“I think Drake smashed Kim K,” DJ Akademiks said while trying to make sense of the feud.

Nick Cannon chimed in on the speculations as he agreed.
“That ain’t that far off of a concept,” Cannon, who dated Kim back in 2006 said.
“As a fan, stepping back, there’s something real personal Drake holds over that whole family, that he’s like, ‘Ya’ll don’t want me to let this out,’” he added.
The Shade Room posted that segment of the interview to its Instagram. Hours later, Kim K hopped into the comment section to swiftly diffuse the speculation.
“Never happened. End of story,” she commented.
Also, an investigative Twitter thread picked up steam over the weekend (Aug. 31) in an attempt to once again connect the dots between Drake’s subliminal hints that he’s been romantically involved with Kim Kardashian in the past.
The original thread from Twitter user @TMorrison24 examined the feud between Drake and Kanye West by piecing together subtle bars from Drake’s verse on Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” when he describes possible directions from his house to Ye’s mansion in Calabasas.
“I crept down the block/ Made a right/ Cut the lights/ Paid the price,” he raps.
Drake also recently followed Kim on Instagram, according to TMZ.
The aforementioned quarrel began in May when the Degrassi alum released a song titled “Duppy Freestyle” in which he dissed both West, 41, and Pusha T, also 41.
On the track, Drake raps about helping West out on two songs, “Father Stretched My Hands” and “30 Hours” from his 2016 album Life of Pablo. He later sent an invoice for $100,000 stating “promotional assistance and career-reviving” to West’s G.O.O.D. music label.
West also debunked rumors of a beef with his fellow rapper during Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI Morning Show on Aug. 29.
“I was thinking just my mood, like when we was talking about the Drake thing, like it hits me in a really sensitive place. Look it ain’t no beef. Ain’t nobody got beef,” he said.
“We understand he was upset about [‘The Story of Adidon’], and I felt it was insensitive of him to stress me out in any way after TMZ while I’m in Wyoming, healing and pulling all pieces together,” he added.
Kanye West and Kardashian tied the knot in Italy in May 2014 and share three kids; North, 5, Saint, 2, and Chicago, 7 months.
