We just texted each other the other day, and he was like, 'I miss you so much,' and I was like, 'I miss you more.' "
The teen star also revealed that the "In My Feelings" hitmaker gave her advice "about boys." She added, "He helps me. Yeah, yeah, yeah. He's great. He's wonderful. I love him." She, however, would not share more details about the advice she got from Drake, saying, "That stays in the text messages."
