Rihanna is reportedly back with Drake, whom she dated briefly in 2010 and 2011 during a break from her on-again off-again boyfriend Chris Brown. "[Drake's been] waiting patiently on the sidelines. Just over a month ago, Drake gave Rihanna an ultimatum. He told her he needed to move on if she wasn't going to commit," an insider told entertainment site Belfast Telegraph.
"His love life was paused when Chris and Rihanna reunited, and Drake claims it caused him stress headaches, writer's block and anxiety. He was obviously sick of it, but Rihanna wasn't ready for him. Now that Chris and Rihanna are done for good, Drake might finally get his chance."
The 26-year-old rapper and Brown, 24, have had an ongoing feud ever since Drake dated singer Rihanna, 25, a few years ago. The feud escalated in June 2012, when the two got into a brawl in a New York City nightclub. Four bottles were thrown from Drake's table, one aimed straight at Brown. Brown's then-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, suffered a concussion, and Brown tweeted a picture of a cut on his chin following the altercation, reports said.
In April, Drake spoke about Brown and Rihanna, telling radio host Elliot Wilson, "At one point in life, the woman that he loves fell into my lap. I did what a real [expletive] would do and treated her with respect. She's not up there talking down on me."
Rihanna may have been hinting at a rekindled romance with Drake earlier this month when she released a video of herself dancing to A$AP Rocky’s “F---in’ Problems,” which also features Drake and Kendrick Lamar.
