Back Together Again? Rihanna and Drake Get “Hot and Heavy” in Miami
Could Rihanna and Drake be rekindling an old flame?
The two friends were spotted dancing all night at Miami’s Liv nightclub on Sunday and reportedly looked anything but platonic. One onlooker told Us Magazine that the pair was acting “hot and heavy,” saying, “Rihanna was all over Drake this weekend. They were holding hands and dancing all close on the dance floor.”
This isn’t the first time Rihanna has been linked to the Degrassi alum. The two dated briefly in 2009 but when the romance fizzled, the two became friends — and collaborators — instead. Most recently, Rihanna was featured on Drake’s track “Take Care.”
"We weren't really sure what it was," the pop star told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez of her relationship with the rapper. "I definitely was attracted to Drake, but I think it is what it is, like what it was. We didn't want to take it any further. It was a really fragile time in my life, so I just didn't want to get too serious with anything or anyone at that time."
Drake, on the other hand, wasn’t quite as cool with taking the duo’s ‘09 romance from love to friendship. Is he ready to try again?
"I guess I thought it was more," he told ELLE magazine last October. "That was the first girl with any fame that paid me any mind. You spend days reading about this person in the magazines. All of a sudden you have this number one song and you're at some birthday party and there she is. And you're just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some s---y-ass hotel who got invited to this party on a whim."
