Are they or aren't they? That's the typical question that follows around celeb couples when they have yet to officially confirm their relationship status. (Heck, I'm still not convinced that Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift are really dating.) And when it comes to Drake and Rihanna, the public may never know if they are truly together. They definitely have one complicated history. And now there are even more rumors the two are dating. So, are they or aren't they? What is going on once and for all with Drake and RiRi? It's hard to say for certain, but there are clues that Drake and Rihanna are dating.
Bustle has reached out to reps for Rihanna and Drake regarding the rumors, but has not yet heard back.
When it comes to clues about this celeb couple, they are truly hard to ignore. For example, Rihanna and Drake are continuously spotted together, which has to mean something, right? Yes, it just might show how good of friends they are, but when there is so much chemistry between the two there just has to be more going on than a platonic friendship, right? I don't know about you, but I think that the musicians are heating up romantically.
With that, let's analyze the several clues that have been dropped recently that pretty much prove Drake and Rihanna are totally dating.
He Joined Her In Manchester
Not only did Drake make a surprise appearance during Rihanna's Anti World Tour shows in Miami and Toronto, but he also did the same while she was in Manchester at the end of June. I guess he really wanted to see and support her. Also, you might just need to fan yourself after watching the above video from their Manchester performance. It was on fire. Oh, and the way Drake looks at RiRi and vice versa? You can't tell me they aren't into each other.
He Said This About Her
During her Manchester show, Drake also gushed about Rihanna. He said to the crowd (via E! News and several tweets), "Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I've ever seen. She goes by the name of Rihanna... I'm gettin' my heart broken." Um, hello? That is a huge compliment and it shows how much Drake admires her. You don't say something like that if you don't mean it. There has to be something going on.
They Partied With A Pussycat Doll
Also, while in London, E! News reported Rihanna and Drake met up at Nicole Scherzinger's birthday party. They reportedly partied until the early morning and even closed down the club together. Even though they're said to have left separately (pretty much right after each other), that doesn't really mean anything. Maybe they just wanted to spend some time apart after hanging out all night? Or, you know, there's a good chance they didn't want to add to those dating rumors by leaving together.
They're Hanging Out — A Lot
According to a July Us Weekly report, Rihanna and Drake were spotted together four nights in a row while in London. Plus, in early June, they were both reportedly chilling at a restaurant in New York City. All I know is you don't hang out with someone that much unless you really, really like them. It certainly says something about their relationship.
Do you really need more clues? I didn't think so.
