According to an onlooker, their dancing got somewhat dirty while they partied at Miami’s Liv nightclub. The source told UsMagazine.com that the twosome got “hot and heavy” while out together, saying, “Rihanna was all over Drake this weekend. They were holding hands and dancing all close on the dance floor.”
This is hardly the first time these two have sparked romance rumors. They briefly dated in 2009, but the relationship fizzled from romance to friendship. Since their platonic transition, they have collaborated on several hit tracks including Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” and most recently Drizzy’s “Take Care.” They even steamed up the videos for both tracks by playing lovers.
“We weren’t really sure what it was,” [artist id="1940303"]Rihanna[/artist] told Elle magazine in 2011 about her relationship with the MC. “I definitely was attracted to [artist id="2545682"]Drake[/artist], but I think it is what it is, like what it was. We didn’t want to take it any further. It was a really fragile time in my life, so I just didn’t want to get too serious with anything or anyone at that time.”
While it seems the twosome have since moved on from their ’09 fling , at the time, Drake had some strong emotions about the breakup.
“She’s just such an overwhelming and incredible person,” Drake said. “And such a talented person and someone that I was like, ‘I can’t believe I’m here talking to this individual,’ that she just gave me that feeling like when I was 17 years old trying to take Nikki Ramos, this girl from Toronto, out on a date and she never wanted to go with me. She never would go; she would have a million excuses why she couldn’t talk to me. That’s how [Rihanna] made me feel, she made me feel small; she made me feel nervous. It just put me back to the Acura in Toronto, feeling like Aubrey Graham, not Drake.”
