Drake Bell, the former star of the hit Nickelodeon sitcom, Drake & Josh, has left fans shocked after finding out where he is now.

You won't believe this. Here's the full story...

Drake Bell has been through some changes as of late.


The thirty-four-year-old actor is a million miles away from his life as an actor.

Admittedly, none of us saw this one coming.


When we first met Drake as, well, Drake, on the set of Drake & Josh, none of us quite had his life now envisioned for him.

But hey, life works in mysterious ways, doesn't it?


Alongside his co-star, Josh Peck, Drake appeared in every episode across the show's 4 seasons, and each and every one was a roaring success.

But, just like his on-screen character...


Drake is also a musician and managed to release his first 2 albums, Telegraph and It's Only Time while filming the show.

His third album, Ready Set Go! arrived in 2014...


And, in February this year, he released The Lost Album, which included songs from a missing hard drive that were originally supposed to be a follow-up to his 2006 album.

He has accumulated a modest fanbase over the years...

And, as it stands, has a strong following of 4.5 million on Instagram.

But, evidently, his fan base is stronger in some places than it is in others...

Because, late last year, it emerged that Drake had actually relocated to Mexico.

But this is where things start to get really weird...

Safe to say, fans don't know what to think after hearing the whole story.

The star changed his Twitter and Instagram handles to "Drake Campana"...

Making people come to the conclusion that he had legally changed his surname.

He even started posting videos where he spoke in fluent Spanish...

As well as captioning all social media posts in the language.

The musician tweeted this...

Which, once translated into English, explains that his social networks would only be in Spanish, adding "no more English."

Of course, people have been very confused by the whole thing.

But why has he moved to Mexico?

And why has he changed his name and his language?

Well, it looks like the name change is solely for appearances on social media.

Despite posting a photo of a seemingly photoshopped Mexican license, the musician posted a video as part of a promotion with Cameo in which he introduced himself as "Drake Bell."

As for the rest of it?

Well, maybe the Mexican life had always been a big dream of his - I suppose you can't argue with tacos, tortillas, and tequila, can you?
