Drake Brushes Off Rihanna Dating Rumors

Rihanna and Drake

Now that Rihanna is newly single, the dating rumors have started up again, linking her once more to Drake. But despite his admiration for the pop superstar, the Young Money rapper maintains the two are not an item.

Drizzy denies he is dating RiRi, who split from boyfriend Matt Kemp late last year. “Me and Rihanna have a great connection, but no, we’re not together,” he told BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Tim Westwood during his U.K. tour.

While he shared a brief romance with his “What’s My Name?” collaborator in 2009, their relationship remains platonic. “I care for her very much. She’s a great person,” he said.

The 24-year-old bachelor is in no rush to get into a relationship. “We’re young, young kids. Just living life. That’s it. I want to have some stories to tell the kids,” he joked.

Always the gentleman, Drake showered praise on RiRi, who helped him score his first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. “I think she sets a certain precedent as far as fashion, as far as all the things women care about—hair, the way you carry yourself, and obviously the music. I think it’s important.”

    I don’t know why they always link Drake to Rihanna,even though I love them both, he’s clearly not her type lol.

    I want her to date Zac Effron or someone young that can handle her lifestyle.

  6. GTFOH!!

    @Reasonable Voice: Zac Effron?? Yeah he is more her ‘type’. *rolls eyes*

    What is it with you Rih stans are your obsession with Rih and Drake? Are ya’ll that superficial that you have to see her with a ‘high profile’ celebrity? Rather than just a regular guy! At first ya’ll were in love with Matt and now that he is out of the picture ya’ll are swinging on Drake’s nuts! Ugh!

    Hasn’t Drake been all over Nicki Minaj lately and professing his love for HER. How many times has he said he wanted to marry Nicki. Why would Rihanna want to be with a man who is constantly professing his love for another woman? How desperate would that look! Plus her and Nicki are friends! Ackward much??

    You Rih stans need to get over this Drake and Rihanna fixation cause it ain’t gonna happen! He is not even that cute with his down syndrome looking ass! Ugh!

    @lee I agree with your statement a 100%… and that probably won’t even happen because Rihanna and Nicki Minaj are just flirts.

    Then why in his new song with Rick Ross does he say “one of my baddest women ever, I call her Rihanna
    but thats cause her name is Rihanna!”?

    Nah, dead serious though like, i feel Rihanna and Drake really don’t need to be together. I love Drake to the death of me, but he was cuter when he was on Degrassi and rihanna was cute too when she was first introduced as well. Now, honestly from my heart, like i take this stuff seriously and i care about Drake, and i just don’t think they’re a good couple. Rihanna isn’t his type, and it’s not like i know everything about him and all but i know he likes girls with big butts and big boobs, and not in the industry and Rihann clearly doesn’t fit into that catergory. At the end of the day Drake will definatley get waht he wants!:))))))))))

    P.S. @ Ebony i agree with you 100% girl!!!<3
