DRAKE Bell was spotted celebrating his birthday at Disneyland on Sunday with a mystery woman and baby.
The 35-year-old’s visit to the theme park comes just days after he pleaded guilty to crimes involving a teen girl.
Last Wednesday, the Drake & Josh actor – real name Jared Bell – pleaded guilty to "attempting to endanger children" after a 15-year-old girl said he sent her "inappropriate" messages.
Later that day, he performed music for his followers on Instagram and has continued to do so almost every day since.
To celebrate his 35th birthday on Sunday, Drake was spotted in public for the first time since pleading guilty, heading to Disneyland in a pair of Mickey Mouse pants.
He wasn't alone for the theme park outing, as he was joined by an unknown woman and a baby – it's unclear his relationship to either.
Both Drake and his companion appeared to have rings on their ring fingers.
The Nickelodeon star wore a themed ensemble for the outing, with a pair of blue jeans with Mickey’s face all over, a red-and-blue striped polo shirt, and Mickey-colored sneakers.
His female friend had on a pair of jean shorts with one large Mickey emblem on them, a white-and-blue striped tee, white sneakers, and a white Mickey cap.
Aside from pleading guilty last week to "attempting to endanger children," Drake also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles. He had pleaded not guilty earlier this month.
He will be sentenced next month in Cleveland, Ohio, when "why Mr. Bell chose to enter today’s plea" will be explained, his attorney Ian Friedman said on Wednesday.
The incident allegedly occurred on December 1, 2017, the day that the TV star was set to perform at a venue in Cleveland.
The California native, who also pleaded guilty to disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, was indicted last month and faces 18 months in prison.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office spokesperson Tyler Sinclair said the singer "violated his duty of care" at a concert after "developing a relationship" with the girl online for several years.
Sinclair said Drake, who was 31 years old at the time, sent the girl, 15, "inappropriate social media messages."
It has not been specified what happened with the girl at the Odeon Concert Club in 2017.
The girl reported the incident to Canadian officials in 2018.
This was not the first time Drake has encountered legal issues, as in August of 2020 he was accused of "verbal and physical" abuse by his ex-girlfriend Melissa Lingafelt.
