Drake claims he only loves his bed and his mama, but it seems he loves Miami, too.
After reading a story in the Miami Herald about the hours-long commutes some Fontainebleau hotel housekeepers endure, the hip-hop star decided to surprise one of the hard-working women with a luxurious spa day and a $10,000 shopping spree.
Odelie Paret, who has worked at the hotel for two decades, received a mysterious phone call from a woman arranging for her to have a massage at the Fontainebleau’s spa and dinner at the property’s steakhouse, the Miami Herald reports.
After the mother of five feasted on a lobster dish, enjoyed the spa and relaxed in the hotel’s opulent lobby — all the while trying to figure out who had gifted her such an unimaginable evening — a car then took her and a friend to Brickell City Centre.
As they stood in front of Saks Fifth Avenue, a hand touched her shoulder, and behind her stood none other than Drizzy himself.
“I always just saw him on the TV. So I said, ‘Drake!’” Paret told the Herald on Tuesday. “It made me happy. … I thank him so much.”
Drake, along with Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, were inspired by the feature about Paret’s four-hour work commutes, and arranged to treat her and two other local women to shopping sprees.
“We took the ladies for a nice little shopping spree … giving back,” the “God’s Plan” rapper says in a Snapchat video.
Paret was given no budget and 45 minutes to shop for whatever she wanted Saks. She landed on a comfortable pair of $800 shoes she could wear to church, a Valentino purse, four perfumes and a $6,000 gold-and-diamond necklace, according to the Herald.
Drake’s kind gesture comes on the heels of several other large donations he doled out like pocket change across Miami.
The OVO Sound founder recently spent $50,000 on everyone’s groceries at a local supermarket, shelled out $50,000 for a women’s shelter, offered a $25,000 check to Miami Senior High after swinging by to film for his new music video and awarded a University of Miami student a $50,000 scholarship.
