Being in a relationship when you’re famous has got to suck (bye-bye, any remaining privacy!), especially if the other person in the relationship with you is also famous, so you can’t really blame Rihanna for wanting to keep whatever she’s doing and whoever she’s doing it with under wraps. For a while now, there’s been a ton of speculation as to whether or not she’s in a relationship, and if she is, if it’s with Leonardo DiCaprio or Drake. On Sunday, both Drake and Rihanna appeared at the VMAs, and after he made a lovely speech about how fabulous she is, and gave her a truly excellent gift, he tried to kiss her on the mouth, and she gave him her cheek instead. (To be clear, she in no way owed him a public kiss, but the lack of one led everyone to believe the two were not, in fact, together.)
But wait! On Tuesday night in Miami, the pair was spotted at a club celebrating Drake’s sold-out show at American Airlines Arena, and they acted like a full-on couple, complete with kissing, dancing and neck rubbing, apparently uninterested in hiding their togetherness. According to a source, Rihanna seemed “totally comfortable and natural” with Drake, and the two stayed out until 4 a.m. with their famous friends, including Flo Rida, Future and Lil Wayne.
While this isn’t the first time they’ve been spotted being affectionate in public (they behaved similarly in Miami earlier this year when Drake supported Rihanna at the after-party for her concert), it’s the first time in a while, and it pretty much confirms the rumors that the off-and-on couple are back on. Whenever these two have performed on stage together, folks have remarked on how much natural spark is between them, and it looks like those who dreamed of a reunion between the performers have gotten their wish.
