Rihanna and Drake are together. I know we’ve had false alarms about this before, but it really looks like it’s happening now. Last time I checked in on Drake, he was doing something with Zoe Kravitz… but that was months ago. Rihanna has been in Europe for several weeks, and I guess she and Drake met up in Paris, then they went to Amsterdam, then London and Glasgow. I’m including some assorted photos from some of their outings – they actively try not to get photographed together, so that says to me that they’re okay with us knowing that something is happening, but they’re not ready to make it official yet. Or are they? TMZ claims that Rihanna and Drake have just become “exclusive”:
Rihanna’s locking it down — she and Drake are officially exclusive.
Multiple sources extremely close to the couple tell us, Rihanna and Drake have gone from casually hooking up to seriously dating … they’ve decided to give it a serious shot.
We’re told Rihanna wants to spend as much time with Drake as her schedule will allow — because he treats her better than anyone she’s ever been with. Not a high bar.
As we reported, the pair have been virtually inseparable while Drake’s been touring in Europe — we’re told Rihanna has spent every single night with him since she arrived.
As for Drake, he’s smitten — one source said “he’s in the best mood he’s been in a long time.”
Well, Drake has always been into it. I get the feeling that he’s always put Rihanna up on a pedestal, that she is, to him, The Forever Girl, the unattainable, the girl he would always want a shot with. I remember reports – years ago – that Rihanna and Drake were hooking up casually, that he wanted more and she wasn’t ready for all that Drake had to offer. Rihanna is used to douchebags, I think. And she didn’t know what to do with a guy who worshipped her and treated her like gold.
In Drake’s recent (and controversial) Rolling Stone interview, he was asked point-blank about Rihanna and he described her as “the ultimate fantasy… I think about it. Like, ‘Man, that would be good.’ We have fun together, she’s cool and sh-t. But we’re just friends. That’s my dog for life.” I want to believe… I want to think that Rihanna is finally ready for some Drake Realness. But Rihanna is a self-saboteur. I kind of think she’ll mess this up somehow.
