Who is Drakeo The Ruler’s girlfriend Noel Bianca?

Noel Bianca is an Instagram model under the username noelbiancaa.

Although she has a 21.2k following, there is not much information on her background. However, we do know that she was born on 18 December, meaning that Drakeo The Ruler sadly passed away on her birthday.

The death also happened weeks after the rapper’s own 28th birthday.

Bianca wrote on Instagram:

“You asked me last Monday. ‘So does this mean we are soulmates’ they took my baby from me on my birthday. I will never be the same without u my rib. Thank you for the prayers. God give me strength.

If I had one birthday wish it would be for my man to be bear hugging me one more time. He gave me the best hugs. I don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel right now. I just wish you were here Darrell.”

Bianca does not post often on social media, but when she does, she has shared loved-up photos of their relationship and can be seen jetting around the world with Caldwell.

Does Drakeo The Ruler have any children?

Calwell has one four-year-old son called Caiden, born 5 January 2018.

Although the rapper keeps his personal life fairly private, he has shared images of his adorable son on Twitter to celebrate his birthday. Caiden has also made an appearance on his father’s Instagram Lives before.

The identity of his mother has not been confirmed.

Caldwell’s death is yet another case in the recent passing’s of much-loved rappers. In November, Young Dolph was killed in a drive-by shooting in Memphis, while Compton rapper Slim400 was shot in Inglewood, California on 8 December.

Snoop Dogg and Drake are just some of the musicians mourning the loss of Caldwell. The Canadian artist shared an image of him with the LA rapper on his Instagram Story.

Long Beach rapper-producer Joey Fatts tweeted an emotional response about Drakeo’s incident:

“Drakeo was killed while working. Was there for a performance. All these get out the streets tweets/leave your city tweets. Shut the f*** up. No reason why a knife should be able to be snuck into a music festival. Especially since the Travis Scott s***. Rip Drakeo hope his fam sue.”
