Rihanna and Drake, who have been rumored to be dating for months, are now officially a couple, Entertainment Tonight reported Tuesday.
On Sunday, Drake presented Rihanna with Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards. At the time he said: “The first time I met Robyn Fenty [Rihanna] was in 2005. The song was ‘Pon de Replay’ and the director of the video was Little X. I was introduced to her as the kid who played background music at the restaurant as people ate at their dinner. It's hard to believe that 11 years later all three of us would come together to create the visual for a song called ‘Work.’”
The 29-year-old “Hotline Bling” singer left fans guessing whether the two are seeing each other. However, according to Entertainment Tonight they are “definitely a couple.”
“They are fully dating,” a source told the entertainment website. “No one really knows how long they have been ‘official’ — they just decided to let it become a thing instead of hiding it from everyone. They’re happy.”
On Monday night, both the singers went to Miami, Florida, where Drake has scheduled shows at the AmericanAirlines Arena as part of his Summer Sixteen Tour, the source told Entertainment Tonight
Rihanna and Drake sparked dating rumors after they were spotted together on several occasions following the release of her “Work” song, which featured Drake. The two first dated in 2009 and have been in an on-and-off relationship ever since. They performed together at the Brit Awards in London in February and after their performance, the rumored couple was reportedly seen getting intimate at a London nightclub.
