The musician and actor Drake is $1 million richer – before taxes of course. He won that much money on a bet that he placed on the NBA playoffs this year. So, at least something has gone right in the life of the 35 year old millionaire, celebrity, sex symbol and successful businessman also known as Drizzy.

Born Aubrey Drake Graham in Toronto in 1986, Drake is the son of an African American father and a Jewish mother. As such, he shares the same lineage as Lisa Bonet, also the daughter of a Jewish mother and African American father. And her former husband Lenny Kravitz also shares the same roots, only in his case his father was the Jewish one.

Some estimate that Drake’s personal wealth will hit almost $200 million by the end of the year.
