AceShowbiz - Kendrick Perkins might not suit up for Cleveland Cavaliers during the team's match with Toronto Raptors on May 1, but he managed to make his own headline. The basketball player was caught on camera getting into a heated exchange with big Raptors fan, Drake.
It's unclear what caused the fight, but many speculated that the Toronto rapper said something which offended Perkins. The two men could be seen angrily shouting at each other before J. R. Smith came along and ushered Perkins away. Should Smith not separate them, they could get into a brawl for real.

This wasn't the first time Drake spoke bad of other team's player during a game. The hip-hop superstar, who is the global brand ambassador for Raptors, was seen unsubtly badgering Chicago Bulls player, Justin Holiday, as the latter attempted to inbound the ball back in 2016. His badgering seemed to be effective as the refs called a five-second violation and his favorite team got the ball.
Aside from supporting Raptors, Drake is currently busy working on his new album "Scorpion", which will be released in June. The "Hotline Bling" hitmaker announced the new album to his Instagram followers, sharing a picture of himself standing with his back to the camera as well as a photo of a gold pendant with the image of a scorpion.
It remains to be seen whether "God's Plan" and "Diplomatic Immunity" will be included on the forthcoming album, as the songs have already been featured on his second EP "Scary Hours". As of now, the only song which is confirmed to be included on the set is "Nice for What". The hit song has ruled the U.S. pop chart for 13 consecutive weeks.
"Scorpion" will be his fifth studio album and a follow-up to his 2016 album "Views".
