No Drake show this weekend

Drake has more to worry about than press reports he's dating Rihanna. The rapper just lost a beloved uncle and has canceled a weekend show so he can mourn the death with his family.

Drake was supposed to play a show at Universal Orlando Resort Saturday night, but has canceled the concert so he can be with his family.

"We regret to announce that Drake will not be able to take the stage at Universal Orlando Resort due to a death in the family," Drake's rep said in a statement.

"He hopes that his fans understand the situation he finds himself in and know that he fully intends to return to the area in the future. He thanks Universal Orlando Resort and his fans for their continued support."

No word on whether or not Rihanna is helping the guy through his time of need.
