“Tried to airdrop this woman a pic of herself cause she’s a dime,” Drake wrote, as he shared the snap of the unnamed blonde woman with his 118 million followers.

The beauty donned white chandelier earrings with a pink crop top and appeared to be concentrating on her phone, while joined by a male companion.

It is unknown if she accepted Drake’s AirDrop.

Fans swiftly took to Twitter, slamming the rapper’s attempt at flirting as “creepy” and have claimed that he is “abusing” his fame.

One person wrote: “I mean isn’t this.... invasion of privacy + creepy + abuse of fame?”
