Are rihanna and drake dating
"She's someone...she's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old, she's one of my best friends in the world," he told Rihanna on stage.
"All my adult life, I've looked up to her even though she's younger than me.
Ever since Drake took to the VMAs stage in a tuxedo and pronounced his undying love for Rihanna to the entire world, the internet has been obsessed with trying to figure out whether they are lovers or just insanely close friends.
The two have been notoriously tight-lipped about putting a label on their relationship, but it just takes a quick look at their history together to see that they've always been soul mates.
Drake -- who also bought a billboard sign for Rihanna ahead of her MTV honor and later shared a kissing selfie of the two -- only had eyes for the "Love On the Brain" singer at a VMA after-party at Up & Down nightclub, a source told ET.
"They walked in together and never left each other's side all night," the source said.
She never would go; she would have a million excuses why she couldn't talk to me.
That's how [Rihanna] made me feel, she made me feel small; she made me feel nervous.
They were really cute together." According to Drake's comment about being in love with her since he was 22 (at their first meeting, he was 18, Ri Ri was 17), it would appear that this was when the sparks started flying, at least on his part. She was doing exactly what I've done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear.
"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 later gushed, prompting big cheers from the audience. 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." And the flirtiness between the two didn't stop there.
