Is Drake making his way back to Rihanna after his fling with Jennifer Lopez?
The rapper wished his on-again, off-again girlfriend Happy Birthday during a concert in Dublin on Monday, Feb. 20. "It's somebody's birthday today — somebody I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect for," he said, causing the crowd to scream in excitement. "Instead of singing 'Happy Birthday,' though, we're going to set it off just like this…" he added as the duo’s song “Work” began to play.
The exes, who broke up in October after less than two months of dating, have a long and complicated history. Things heated up between the duo last August when he presented the 29-year-old with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the VMAs.
"She is someone I have been in love with since I was 22-years-old. She is one of my best friends in the world,” the “Hotline Bling” singer gushed. “All my adult life, I've looked up to her even though she's younger than me. She's a living, breathing legend in our industry.” Rihanna reciprocated the sentiments on Instagram, writing, "Your speech was so touching and I love you for that… Best night ever!!! I'm a lucky girl!!!"
Over the last few months, Drake has been linked to J.Lo, but during a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the mother-of-two seemingly confirmed that the pair had split.
"She says she's single at the moment and too busy and doesn't have time for first dates and stuff, so we're going to find a man for her in a game we call 'Who'd You Rather?’” Ellen revealed, while offering up a slew of celebrities for the brunette beauty to choose from — one of which was 23-year-old Brit, Harry Styles. "That's my new boyfriend? He's a little bit young," the 47-year-old hilariously admitted.
Here’s hoping Drake and Rihanna make it stick this time!
