Drake has opened up about his relationship status with Rihanna. The two have sparked rumors that they are dating again after a brief stint in 2011.
In recent months, the Barbadian bombshell has been spotted going out to dinner and various events with Drake, whom she briefly dated during one of her breaks with Brown. On Saturday, the two grabbed dinner at Nobu in London together. Two days prior, Rihanna and Drake were in Amsterdam dining at a local sushi restaurant. Drake is currently on a world tour, and it seems Rihanna is his traveling buddy. But are they anything more? Drake says they are not, telling Rolling Stone in a recent interview, “I mean, I think about it,’ he said. ‘Like, ‘Man that would be good.’ We have fun together. She’s cool and s–t. But we’re just friends. That’s my dog for life.”
Regardless of their status, Brown reportedly approves of Rihanna’s blossoming relationship with Drake, though the same could not have been said in June 2012. That month the two artists had a violent clash over mutual romantic interest Rihanna at New York nightclub W.I.P.
The fight reportedly started when Drake's entourage rebuffed Brown's gesture of a bottle of champagne at the Soho nightclub. Ice chips were thrown at Brown and then a bottle was reportedly thrown from Brown's table into the crowd. Four bottles were then thrown from Drake's table, one aimed straight for Brown. Brown's then-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, suffered a concussion, and Brown tweeted a picture of a cut on his chin following the altercation.
