Drake's been in a giving mood lately, to say the least. "So I said, 'Drake!'" Paret told the Miami Herald about meeting the Grammy-winner.

The Haitian mother-of-five works a 14-room-a-day cleaning shift to support her family - however, her latest shift ended with a massage at the Fontainbealu's spa and a lobster dinner, thanks to a certain rapper.

When housekeeper Odelie Paret clocked out for the day on February 6 at Miami's famed Fontainebleau, the 63-year-old assumed she'd be headed back to her Opa-locka home.

After dinner, a vehicle was waiting to take Paret and a friend to Brickell City Centre, where they waited until the shopping center closed. So I said, 'Drake!' It made me happy. Then she was taken by auto to a Saks Fifth Avenue, where she was met by the rapper and football player and given 45 minutes (and no dollar limit) to buy whatever she wanted in the store.

She left with a $2,000 Valentino purse, four perfumes, a $6,000 18-karat gold and diamond necklace and an $800 pair of flats to wear to church. He donated $25,000 to a Miami High School.

He also paid grocery bills worth $50,000 for supermarket shoppers, but it was his day of luxury for one hotel maid that has really touched hearts.

After the giving spree, he took to Instagram and gushed, "Last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time...there's nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they need it the most". The rapper first learned about Paret from an article in the Miami Herald from 2017 where she spoke on the increasing rent prices in the city that's causing more than 80% of Miami workers to move further away from the city.
