(NEW YORK) -- Ellen Degeneres couldn't help herself, so when she had Drake on her show Friday, she decided to ask the Grammy-winning rapper about the many women he has been linked to in the past.
"We're gonna play a game while you're here, because you're a very private person and I think people want to know more about you," Degeneres said. "You've dated a lot of people. ... I'm going to show you some pictures, you say 'Dated her,' 'Dating her now,' 'I've kissed her once,' or, 'Maybe I've just held her hand.'"
Ellen questioned Drake about his rumored relationships with Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Tyra Banks, Kim Kardashian and Kat Dennings.
Drake denied relationships with Kardashian and Minaj, admitting that he and the latter are "like family."
When asked about Rihanna, Drake remained vague, calling the singer a "great girl."
Drake did acknowledge going out with both Banks and Dennings. With Banks, the rapper said, the two went to Disneyland in disguise, though he stopped short of referring to the outing as a date.
When questioned about Dennings, Drake told Ellen that he "always had a huge crush" on the Two Broke Girls star, and that the two went out for dinner at least once.
Drake's latest album, Nothing Was The Same, will be released on Sept. 24.
