8:06 AM PT -- Kim just put the rumor to rest herself, commenting, "Never happened. End of story." on a social media post about the theory with Drake.
Drake definitely started the rumor with his song, "In My Feelings" where he refers to Kiki. That's her family nickname, and also the color of one of her KKW Beauty lipsticks.
The other clue people on social media are using to connect the dots is from Drake's collab with Kylie's baby daddy Travis Scott -- "Sicko Mode." Drake's home is pretty close to Kim's and the lyric goes ... "I crept down the block, made a right, cut the lights, paid the price."
We're told the two do have some mutual friends and are cordial when they have run into each other at events in the past, but they've never had a personal friendship or relationship.
As for the hooking up thing, our Kim sources say it's all BS ... that she's never slept with Drake. Didn't happen while she was married and didn't happen before.
