Rihanna and Drake have been teasing the world with their sultry stage performances and undeniable connection, now they finally admit to being a couple.
If Drake pouring his heart out couldn’t get the Barbados singer to accept being his girlfriend after all these years, we don’t know what else will.
Drake started his wooing by giving his new bae a big holla via a billboard in LA where he congratulated her MTV Vanguard award at the just concluded 2016 MTV VMAs event held in Madison Square Garden, New York, Sunday, August 28.
RiRi responded with a classic Instagram caption as she reshared the image which read, “When he extra loves you”, adding a love emoji to it.
Antoinette Bueno for ET Weekly said a source close to Rihanna told the site, “They are fully dating. No one really knows how long they have been ‘official’ — they just decided to let it become a thing instead of hiding it from everyone. They’re happy.”
The Hotline Bling singer presented Rihanna with the Vanguard Award and took the chance to declare his love for Robyn Fenty saying, “The first time I met Robyn Fenty was in 2005. I was introduced to her as the kid who played background music at the restaurant as people ate their dinner.”
“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” he added, “She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her, even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry.”
Rihanna and Drake were spotted leaving the VMAs together, on Sunday and Rachel McRady for ET Weekly said an eyewitness informed them that, “Rihanna stayed at Drake’s hotel overnight and through to dinner the next day after receiving the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The two shared a sweet moment onstage when Drake presented RiRi with her award, and the PDA didn’t stop there.”
Quoting another source who saw the couple at a VMA after-party, McRady stated, “They walked in together and never left each other’s side all night. He was so attentive to her. His eyes were never off her. They were necking a lot. They would hug and he would kiss into her neck.”
On Monday night, August 29, the new Hollywood couple took a flight out “together” for the Views hitmaker’s performance in Miami.
Drake was slated for two shows at the American Airlines Arena on Tuesday, August 30 and Wednesday night, August 31, as part of his Summer Sixteen Tour.
Finally, we have a new couple on our radar.
