“Rihanna is embarrassed for Drake after hearing the news that he may have knocked up a random hookup,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She’ll always have love and a soft spot for Drake, so the news still bothered her a bit.”
The pair began dating in August after the rapper declared his love for the brunette beauty during the VMAs. "This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us!" he said at the time. "You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you!" Unfortunately, they split up less than two months later.

“Rihanna knows he can be a player, but doesn’t believe any of the accusations,” the source continued. “She’s totally Team Drake on this one!”
In a lengthy Instagram message, Layla accused the Canadian of ignoring her phone calls after she told him that she was expecting. “I should of ran for the hills but no I felt [sic] for the ‘Good Guy’ image that this ass hole portrayed to be. What a #Fraud,” she wrote. “I feel so stupid!!! I never told this man ‘No’ I did everything he told me to do Smfh!!!! (((NEVER))) asked him for a dime!!!” Her account has since been deactivated.

DJ Spade recently claimed that Layla is lying about the paternity based on an alleged text conversation he had with her. “Publicity will make me $ even if he don’t want me idc,” she reportedly wrote. But when DJ Spade warned that everyone will “hate” her once the truth comes out, she allegedly responded, “I’m still gonna get this money.”
At least Drake has a solid support system while dealing with this drama.
