Rapper Kevin Gates recently made headlines when a sex tape allegedly featuring him and a woman other than his wife was leaked online. It got people talking about how Kevin’s real-life performance compares to his sexual lyrics.
But how is Kevin’s wife Dreka reacting to this? The answer is that she’s not. At least not publicly. However, she’s still supporting him on social media, so does that mean things are going well?
Kevin Gates’ Wife Dreka Responds To His Sex Tape
As Hot 97 points out, Dreka recently posted a clip from Kevin’s Vice series “Kevin Gates Helpline” on Instagram. There was no reference to the sex tape in her caption. However, the full helpline episode she’s promoting is partly related to cheating.
“When Cheating Doesn’t Actually Count as Cheating,” reads the title of the video. Some commenters remarked on the interesting timing. In the clip, Kevin gives advice to a college student who fell into a relationship and ended up hooking up with another girl.
He encouraged Kevin to talk to the girl he’s dating and tell her, “I need to make myself happy before I can make anyone else happy.” Could Dreka’s post be a hidden message hinting at the cheating rumors?
Things get complicated when you discover that Kevin and Dreka have something of an open marriage. In a past interview, Kevin said he’d been with other women, and Dreka said she was fine with it if she was involved. How that might affect her reaction to the alleged tape is unclear.
How Did Kevin React To The Sex Tape Leaking?
Over the weekend, Kevin seemed to respond to the social media uproar over the tape. He posted a tweet reading, “Distractions come and go but by all means stay focused!!!!” He added the hashtags #EyesOnThePrize and #StillHoldUp, along with a flexing arm emoji.
However, it looks like he sent this tweet early Saturday morning, while most of the reactions to the tape seem to be from later in the day. So it could just be a generic motivational tweet that has nothing to do with the scandal.
Kevin recently released a new single called “Still Hold Up,” as well as an accompanying music video. However, many people’s focus right now is on the other video. We’ll have to wait and see if he or his wife ever address it directly.
