Less than two months after confessing his love in public for the Barbadian singer, the on and off couple Drake Rihanna was reported to have split again. Sources also confirm that the two are seeing other people at the moment. Is Chris Brown back in the picture?
The Drake Rihanna tandem has boggled the minds of many for seven years now. The two singers always had a close relationship, sometimes romantic, other times simply friendly.
But it’s no secret that Drake has always been in love with Rihanna even when she was still dating Chris Brown in 2007, In fact, Drake has made his feelings publicly known on the MTV Video Music Awards last August 2016. Before presenting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award to Rihanna, the 29-year old rapper blurted out “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” followed by a quick kiss.
According to US Weekly, a week following his confession, Drake Rihanna got matching shark tattoos.
History repeats itself, however, since multiple reports are claiming that the Drake Rihanna love team is no more. According to an E! News source, “Rihanna and Drake are seeing other people at the moment. They are not exclusive anymore. They still love each other, but their schedules have gotten in the way.”
Another E! source debunks the first claim saying that the two were never a couple and have always been just close friends. “Everyone wants them to be together, but they are just close friends who are always in each others lives,” shared the source.
Because of their busy schedules– Drake with his back to back tours and music and Rihanna, also with her music career and fashion line– the two would have a difficult time keeping the relationship together. Not to mention the two living on the opposite sides of the country with Rihanna at New York and Drake in California.
Another rumored reason for the Drake Rihanna breakup are the new people in their lives. Some speculations are that the split was because of Drake’s new love interest, model India Love who was spotted watching the Toronto Blue Jays game with Drake last week.
A post Love made on Twitter caused speculations that she is indirectly attacking Rihanna, saying “I think it’s mad crazy how you could really be dating someone for a period of time & be completely blind to who they really are.” However, there is no confirmation of a Rihanna- India Love feud brewing.
Another speculation is that Rihanna is back together again with her long-time on and off ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown. The two dated from 2007 to 2013, but the relationship had no definite ending. While Chris Brown and Rihanna’s relationship ended in the controversial assault of Brown to Rihanna, the two still saw each other.
The Hollywood Life reported that the two are still close with each other and Chris Brown still reaches out to Rihanna every now and then. “He sent her a joking text telling her telling her she could lay on his chest if she needed a rock for support. She hit him back with ‘lol.’ That made Chris smile. RiRi’s always giving him attitude and making him work it and he loves that about her.”
Though it has not been confirmed that Chris Brown is dating Rihanna again, the star did say that the Drake Rihanna tandem is boring and that he expected it would not last.
A source close to the rapper shared with The Hollywood Life that, “He knew it wouldn’t last. No diss to Drake but he ain’t man enough for Rihanna. He’s not edgy and when you peel back all his sweet BS lines and charm you see the real Drake: a boring mamas boy.”
