In the wee hours of Monday morning, Drake posted a shot of himself and Rih engaged in what certainly looks like couple-y behavior, which Drake fans quickly surmised came from the couple’s rumored date at Toronto’s aquarium earlier this month.
So, either they are dating for real, or Drake is the 2016 equivalent of Anthony Michael Hall in Sixteen Candles.
(Rihanna has always insisted they’re just friends, while Drake has spoken about a brief fling in the past that ended in heartbreak.) For those who are not well versed in the “it’s complicated” love story between Riri and Drake, here, a comprehensive timeline.
May 2009Like the opening scene in a romantic comedy, Drake and Rihanna’s meet-cute reportedly happened at a bowling alley.
The two were spotted getting cozy at Lucky Strike in New York, just a few months after Rihanna’s relationship with Chris Brown ended.
November 2009During a candid interview with Angie Martinez, Rihanna talks about her breakup with Brown.
"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.
After releasing two hit duets earlier this year, Drizzy and Ri Ri have been spotted out on the town in Europe, and, of course, dancing together onstage during several of major awards shows.Rihanna and Drake seem to be popping up all over the place with each other and not just because of their single “Work”.Tonight, Rihanna is performing at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards and, ahead of the show, Drake gave a performance at a Vegas club with Rihanna hanging out in the crowd.Earlier this year, Drake and Rihanna starred in the supersexy music video for their song "Work," and the rapper has popped up on stage with the sexy singer at a handful of her concerts to help perform the hit.It wasn't long before rumors swirled that the former couple could be giving things another try, and most recently, the pair heated things back up after they put on quite the lovey-dovey show at the MTV VMAs, with Drake revealing that he's "been in love" with Rihanna since he was 22 years old.
