Rihanna’s having a rough start to 2017.
Not only is the singer’s ex Drake publicly hooking up with Latina bombshell Jennifer Lopez, but he allegedly dissed her during a New Year’s Eve performance. Yet sources say the Barbadian beauty is directing most of her anger at J.Lo.
“Rihanna and Jennifer used to be good friends. She’s even confided in J.Lo about her rocky relationship with Drake over the years,” an insider told In Touch. “Rihanna is very hurt.”
The “Umbrella” singer first revealed how she felt about the new couple last week when she unfollowed Jen on Instagram after the 47-year-old posted a cozy photo of herself and Drake, which he also shared.
“[Rihanna] is really freaked out about Jennifer, especially because they’re friends,” a different source told Hollywood Life. “She thinks of Jennifer as a mentor, so the fact that they’re now Eskimo sisters is pretty overwhelming.”
Not to mention, Drake pretty much kicked her when she was down by refusing to sing their song “Work” during an appearance at Hakkasan night club in Las Vegas. When the DJ began to play the tune, the rapper told the crowd that he’d rather play some newer music. After his set, he left the club with J.Lo through a back door.
Rumors about the duo first surfaced last month when Drake was spotted at the mother-of-two’s Vegas show. Then on Dec. 29, they couldn’t keep their hands off each other while attending a Winter Wonderland-themed prom party. Video from the event shows the pair kissing and grinding on the dance floor.
News of the romance came shortly after Jennifer called things off for good with longtime love Casper Smart after he allegedly cheated on her.
