Drake took Thor beauty Kat Dennings out for sushi after she was flooded with abusive messages from his fans on Twitter.
The Canadian rapper - who has confessed to having a crush on the 26-year-old actress - sent her a message on the social networking site, resulting in a backlash for Kat from his jealous fans.
Kat explained on US chat show Chelsea Lately: "Drake was super nice and said something on Twitter about me, but I didn't realise that happened.
"So when I got home I had like 50,000 new followers on Twitter and then I looked and they were like 'F*** you Kat Dennings!' and 'You can't take Drake from me, he's mine.' And I'm like 'I'm literally not trying to take Drake from you.' And then I realised what had happened and he's super super nice."
So after chatting on Twitter they ended up going on a date.
Kat revealed: "We had sushi. It was a hangout, it was a hangout... he was a gentleman, he was cool... but we were being followed by a black SUV with his security dude."
The actress also explained she had met Drake before in Toronto while shooting an indie film when she was 19.
Drake previously revealed he had a crush on Kat to Elle magazine in October 2012 when asked about his birthday plans.
He said: "I'm gonna invite Kat Dennings. I'm in love with her. She's really funny. But I think she's dating someone."
