DRAKE dedicated his new album CLB to tragic Instagram model Mercedes Morr, whose family believes she was strangled by an "obsessed stalker."
When Certified Lover Boy (CLB) dropped on Apple, he included a touching tribute to the slain OnlyFans model, 33, whose real name was Jenae Gagnier.
Drake wrote: “A combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking.
"Executive produced by me, Noah ‘40’ Shebib, Oliver El-Khatib, and Noel Cadastre. Dedicated to Nadia Ntuli and Mercedes Morr. RIP 💖 —Drake."
Also referenced in Drake's message was the late model Ntuli, who died earlier this year, according to reports on social media. Morr's body was found by her dad on Sunday at her Texas apartment.
The social media starlet – who worked with the brand Fashion Nova – had an impressive 2.6 million followers on Instagram, including rappers Cardi B, Snoop Dogg, and Megan Thee Stallion.
Drake's album dedication was revealed after Mercedes' heartbroken dad described how he found her dead on the stairs in her home with graffiti on the walls saying "I was used."
Mark Gagnier found his daughter's suspected killer Kevin Accorto, 34, "twitching" and "gurgling" upstairs with a knife in his neck surrounded by more graffiti.

The family said it had been several days since they heard from Jenae, which was out of character, and her initially thought his daughter had an accident when he saw her lying at the bottom of the stairs.
“I walk in and Janae’s on the floor, and her clothes are all torn up and stuff,” Gagnier told KPRC. “I go upstairs, guy upstairs with a knife in him, still alive. He was twitching, he was gurgling.
“I just couldn’t do nothing but stand there and call the police. That’s the true story and that’s what I want out," he added. "I could look in the room and there's writings all over the wall,"
Around him, Accorto had used pens and lipstick to write all over the wall, confessing his love for Jenae and making a confession.
They included bizarre claims like: "I was used for money," "sorry to the landlord and the community," "I hurt a lot ok," and "I wished I never loved her."
'STALKER KILLED MY BABY'
Gagnier said he had previously warned his Instagram model daughter about possible danger from her fans.
"My monthly conversation is, Jenae you have all these followers. Some probably because they love you, some because they like your look, some more crazy, and some obsessed," he told KTRK-TV.
"I don't know how he found her and I don't know how all this happened," Glover continued. “She’s very cautious about her surroundings Unfortunately, someone basically was stalking, and killed my baby.”
The family also blasted the rumors and speculation that surrounded Jenae's death as they said it made it harder to mourn their daughter.
"It went from false accusations of HIV or Covid to other things," they said.
CAUSE OF DEATH
Cops revealed on Tuesday that Miss Mercedes Morr's death was ruled a homicide after she was strangled and suffered a traumatic concussion.
Accorto's death was ruled “suicide by multiple sharp force trauma.”
“He murdered her and then he killed himself,” Grover said. “That’s what needs to be known.”
Investigators are still searching for how Accorto found his way into her apartment; Mark said he believed it could have been through the garage with he knows she often left open.
Accorto's previous criminal history included only a string of minor traffic violations.
After news of Mercedes' passing broke, tributes starting pouring in for her on social media.
Rapper Tory Lanez posted a photograph of her on his Instagram story, saying, "Rest in peace Queen," while Cardi B also spoke out calling her a "sweetheart" and slamming criticism of her lifestyle.
