Nevertheless, Drake went ahead to use her picture for his single cover. Halle Berry expressed her anguish over the same while replying to a comment on her latest Instagram post which was a sharp dig at the rapper. A netizen had questioned the X Men: The Last Stand actress’ displeasure over the singer using her image as his single’s artwork since the picture is owned by Getty Images and that the ‘God’s Plan’ hitmaker might have paid for the same. However, Halle continued her stance that Drake went against her discontent over the same.

One you worked hard for. And deserve a say in how and when it’s being used. As an artist that’s vital. But as a mom that’s imperative.” Talking about Drake’s single ‘Slime You Out’, it marks the second release from his album For All The Dogs.
