Rihanna and her former lover Drake reunited on Friday night over dinner and drinks before again spending time at a VMA after-party. The 25-year-old beauty had dinner with the rapper at Beauty and Essex in New York.
“They were in very good spirits and were dancing and singing. Drake and Rihanna seemed to be just friends enjoying a fun night out,” a source told the New York Post. Rihanna sat across from Drake, 26, who was there with another female friend. Sources said Rihanna and Drake left separately.
Two nights later, after the VMA awards, which were held at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, Rihanna and Drake headed to PDH Rooftop to party with other huge names such as Beyonce and Jay-Z. Though she dressed down for the actual awards show, wearing a simple T-shirt and denim jeans, Rihanna showed off her sex appeal afterward in a black sparkled minidress. When she left the rooftop party with a drink in her hand, Drake left just minutes later.
Earlier this month, it was rumored that Rihanna had eyes for Drake again, after tweeting about her new favorite song, "Hold On, We're Going Home,” which was recently released by the rapper. Rihanna dated Drake briefly in 2010 and 2011 during a break from her on-again, off-again boyfriend Chris Brown.
Since then, Drake and Brown, 24, have had an ongoing feud. 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.
On Twitter, Rihanna tweeted her favorite lyrics to his new song, writing, "I got my eyes on you. Cuz you're a good girl and you know it [sic]!" Afterward, a fan wrote more of the song lyrics, to which the Barbadian stunner replied, "My new fave record, period."
Drake spoke in April about Brown and Rihanna, telling radio host Elliot Wilson: "At one point in life, the woman that he [Brown] 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.”
