Drake is reportedly self-isolating after partying with NBA superstar Kevin Durant, who has COVID-19


Drake is reportedly the latest celebrity to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The GRAMMY-winning Canadian rapper is reportedly in self-isolation at home in Toronto after having partied with NBA star Kevin Durant, who announced on March 17 that had he tested positive for COVID-19.

Page Six reports the Toronto Raptors' global ambassador has opted to self-isolate after he and the two-time NBA champion were said to have partied last week at The Nice Guy, a bar in West Hollywood. Drake shared a photo of them to his Instagram on March 11.

On March 17, Drake posted a video to his Instagram Stories that was purportedly taken from his home basketball court in his mansion in Toronto's Bridle Path neighbourhood.

"My life for the next however long," he wrote.

He's been sharing similar updates since, including an image of an OVO basketball shooting machine and more.

Kevin is one of at least seven NBA players who have contracted coronavirus, including Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Golbert of the Utah Jazz and Christian Wood of the Detroit Pistons. Three other Nets players have the illness, though the team hasn't named them. They're receiving treatment from the team's physicians and are isolating as per medical instruction, the Nets have said in a statement.

"Everyone, be careful," Kevin said after revealing his diagnosis this week.

While he said he was feeling fine, he stressed the importance of what's going on at the moment.

"Take care of yourself and quarantine," he said. "We're going to get through this."
