Did you pull off the rear drums and check the shoes for the parking brake?

If your parking brake is/was seized and you drove around you may have worn the shoes down to the metal.

If they're still rubbing when it's cold it may be that when you drive around and everything gets hot they loosen up allowing you more play in your handbrake.

Just a thought. Should only take 10 minutes to pull the rotor off and look at them.

Impossible to diagnose over the internet, pull your rear discs off and check all the hardware. Sounds to me a spring let loose or pads jumped off and are jamming things up in the parking brake.

I'd do it semi soon, they can shear off a part of the knuckle if left
