The superstar couple has called it quits, according to an insider who revealed details about the breakup to E! News.
“Rihanna and Drake are seeing other people at the moment,” said the source.
“They are not exclusive anymore. They still love each other, but their schedules have gotten in the way.”
While this statement doesn’t sound totally final, it’s not good news for fans of the couple who have grown to adore their public displays of affection, and their awesome musical stylings.
The couple has been public with their love.
After months of speculation throughout 2016, the rumored couple appeared on stage together at the MTV Music Video Awards, and Drake said the legit sweetest things he could say about Rihanna.
He basically declared his love for the artist when he announced, “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world.”
They’ve performed together, as recently as last month, and even got matching shark tattoos so maybe there’s a chance for another reunion.
“Anything can change between them…for better or worse,” added the insider.
“They are still in each other’s lives.”
Perhaps what’s most interesting about their alleged break up is that different outlets are reporting very different reasons for the split. E! News claimed that it wasn’t Rihanna who made the move to break up.
An alleged source told the publication that “Drake and India Love have been hooking up for at least a few weeks,” leading fans to believe it was the “Hotline Bling” singer who moved on first.
“Drake and India Love have been hooking up for at least a few weeks,” said the source.
They recently attended a Toronto Blue Jays game together where an onlooker said they were “very coupley.”
E! claims that India’s ex “Cliff Dixon was rumored to have cheated on her with Rihanna.”
The source believe that may be the reason for this new relationship.
“Drake could be hooking up with India Love now to piss off Rihanna,” the source added, “which has clearly worked.”
Over the weekend, RiRi posted a meme on Instagram that could very well be aimed at the 6 God. It reads: “none of my exes are married or in happy relationships so it’s safe to say that I wasn’t da problem lol.”
However, US Weekly tells a totally different story, reporting that the break was Rihanna’s choice, with a source telling the magazine:
“She doesn’t want to be held down. They will always be close. If they end up together, it could happen, but not now.”
This isn’t the first time the couple has broken up.
Their on-again, off-again relationship has seen several ups and downs since 2009.
