On Monday, Althoff’s podcast episode with Drake was removed from Spotify and her YouTube page, and the two unfollowed each other on Instagram.

Some fans have speculated that Drake wasn’t amused by her “uninhibited” reaction to his concert, prompting a falling out between them.

“This Bobby Althoff girl is weird. I won’t blame Drake if he’s offended. Who goes to someone’s concert looking like that?” Support him like he supported you, honey. He gave you relevance and views,” one fan posted.

However, others have speculated that the mutual unfollowing was merely a publicity stunt – because after they unfollowed each other, Althoff penned a cryptic text Instagram Story on Monday: “Big announcement coming next Monday. Set a reminder because you don’t want to miss this. Nine in the morning, someone’s time zone.”

Some fans believe Drake was offended by Bobbi Althoff’s video in which he pretended not to be impressed with his concert.

Althoff, who now has over 5 million TikTok followers, has been posting since 2021. She started out with content about life as a new mom and raising children and only recently turned to celebrities. She also interviewed disgraced YouTuber Colleen Ballinger, Lil Yachty, Mark Cuban, Rick Glassman, and YouTuber Funny Marco.

“When I started my podcast in April, I wanted to do celebrity interviews but didn’t know how to get there. “It’s been really hard getting guests, so I made a video on TikTok saying I would give $300 to any person who successfully hooked me up with a celebrity for a podcast,” she said said Cosmopolitan.

“Rick Glassman, the comedian, was the first person I was able to interview because someone tagged him and he was like, ‘Okay, I’ll do it.’ So I sent her $300 and did the episode with Rick Glassman.”

That’s how she ended up at Funny Marco, she explained.

“Then I got a random comment on TikTok asking if I’d heard about Funny Marco… I took a screenshot of the comment and posted it to my Instagram Stories and tagged it with the words, ‘Marco if you like this Girl wanna make $300.'” ‘Dm me.’ He had over 4 million followers back then and I only had 500,000. I thought, ‘He’s not going to see this.’ But he answered about a second later. So I sent the girl $300 and he got on the podcast. Our joint video I got so many views.”

One of those views came from Drake, who then followed her, she said.

When that happened, she decided to “try and get my shot.” She sent Drake a direct message inviting him to her podcast, and he agreed.

“He sent me his tour schedule and I knew I had to do it quickly, so my friend and I flew to Memphis two days after the original DM shipped to record the episode.”

She missed her daughter’s first birthday to interview Drake.

She defended that decision, telling Cosmo, “We celebrated her birthday the weekend before, and she’s 1. She doesn’t know anything.” For her, it’s like any other day. People are so dramatic. They said, “You did that for Drake?” I don’t even know what my parents did for my first birthday. They probably worked. I know I’m a good mother. It was work and much needed.”

Due to her abrupt rise to fame between April and August, there was even speculation that she was an “industrial plant” backed by Hollywood insiders. She made fun of this rumor post a tiktok videoo of herself dancing to Ice Spice and Nicki Minaj’s “Barbie World,” captioned “Celebrating Because the Industry Planted Me.”

She told Cosmo that while she has ties to Snoop Dogg, she is not a “Nepo baby,” as some of her detractors have speculated.

“My dad is a contractor and worked on Snoop Dogg’s neighbor’s house… I couldn’t be further from someone with connections and money. People say, “Your father had ties to Snoop Dogg. My father was a handyman.”

Although she denied that she’s “someone with money,” she did admit that she self-funds her flights for her podcast, and she didn’t reveal where she gets the $300 that she regularly offers to influencers join her podcast.

Althoff, mother of two daughters and married to computer programmer Cory Althoff previously said At Dave Portny’s BFF Podcast that she and her husband sleep separately while she sleeps with her children.

“I like dry humor; That comes naturally to me, so I want to see where that takes me,” she told Cosmo.

“I would like to start acting. That’s definitely my goal. I know my 10 seconds of fame could be gone at any moment, and then what? But that doesn’t matter because my life is bigger than me. My kids are my goal, and after all this, if I need to find a job at McDonald’s, I will.”

Althoff and Drake didn’t respond when The Post reached out to them for comment.
