The pair – whose love lives have been the hot topic of conversation for years – set tongues wagging on Wednesday night when they flaunted their undeniable chemistry while performing their sexy track ‘Work’ on stage at The Forum in Los Angeles as part of her Anti World Tour, before dancing the night away at The Nice Guy nightclub.
A source told People.com: “They’ve [Rihanna and Drake] been secretly dating for months. They were dancing all night together [at the club]. They were very affectionate.”
This isn’t the first time the brunette beauty has been romantically linked to the 29-year-old rapper as it was thought they also dated briefly a few years ago.
The insider added: “They have been keeping it [their relationship] a secret because this time around, they want to do it right and keep their relationship private.”
Drake previously boasted about the “genuine energy” he has with the 28-year-old singer after he was pressed on their friendship and collaboration on his track ‘Too Good’.
He said at the time: “We’re not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music and energy we have is genuine. We have a genuine energy. [I was like] I think I have one that would follow this one [‘Work’] up really nicely. It was like a flawless victory when she sent it back. Every nuance, every cadence was perfect … That’s what makes the record.”
Meanwhile, the duo’s new relationship status will no doubt come as somewhat of a surprise to fans as just a few months ago Rihanna declared she was very much single.
She said: “I’m single right now. And it’s not that I’m like, ‘Oh, pro single. Yes, I hate men.’ I just think that I just have so much on my plate that I can’t even find the time to entertain a steady relationship or anything serious … [I don’t even have time to send] a text. Right now it’s just crazy.”
