Drake & Rihanna's Status May Have Changed

by Nicole Pomarico

Just when I thought my favorite star crossed musical lovers were finally living happily ever after, there's a chance there relationship may have come to an abrupt end. According to E!, Rihanna and Drake have reportedly split up. But if you're just as heartbroken as I am about this new development, don't worry — all hope isn't lost, because there are also a few conflicting reports out there about the status of their relationship. Bustle has reached out to Drake and Rihanna's reps on the situation, but has yet to hear back.

After years of hoping that the "Too Good" singers would actually end up together, over the summer, that dream finally came true after Drake revealed that he'd been in love with Rihanna for years on the 2016 VMA stage. And although neither of them ever formally confirmed that they were dating, Drake and Rihanna have appeared to be together for months, much to the thrill of fans everywhere. They've been spotted out on what looks like dates, and have even been caught kissing in public. But now, that may have all changed. A source close to the apparent couple told E! that they've decided to date other people, and if that intel is true, it's definitely not looking good.

The source said:

"Rihanna and Drake are seeing other people at the moment. They are not exclusive anymore. They still love each other, but their schedules have gotten in the way. . . Anything can change between them though, for better or worse. They are still in each other's lives."

Oh, and to add insult to injury, the insider adds that Drake is reportedly "hooking up" with model India Love these days. (Drake and Love's reps did not immediately reply to a request for comment about this.) Um, that is not what I wanted to hear. What I wanted to hear is that they're planning a wedding officiated by Kanye West, but that's clearly not what's happening. Fortunately, though, it sounds like their relationship might not be dead and buried, if People's source is to be believed.

That insider says that Drake and Rihanna are still together, but have chosen to open their relationship — which means those India Love rumors might make a little more sense. It's a little unconventional, but if it works for them (especially with their hectic lifestyles), that's totally their call.

Being that these two have remained a little shady about their relationship status all along, an official update on what's really going on between them will probably never materialize. I just hope these crazy kids find a way to work things out, whether they're exclusive or not. They're just too perfect not to!
