Some may have interpreted Rihanna looking on at Drake during his performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night as negative, but it’s now being revealed the two had dinner together just a couple of nights ahead of the show.
The “Stay” singer, 25, and “Started From the Bottom” rapper were seen in a private room at the New York City hotspot Sons of Essex.
"Drake came in around 10 p.m. with 10 people and had 4 large security guards. Rihanna came about an hour later, alone, not counting her security," a source told E! News.
The former flames, which is reportedly what caused Drake and Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown to have bad blood, reportedly only talked to each other while there.
“They sat in a back room, the lights were dimmed, and there was sort of a barricade of tables blocking their group off," said the source. "Drake and Rihanna sat right across the table from one another. They were avoiding photos, and the security kindly asked some fans to leave, because they were trying to get too close.”
The insider also said the outing was “very casual.”
Back in April, Drake talked about hooking up with Rihanna, saying the Barbados-born beauty “fell into his lap.” He said about Brown, “At one point in life, the woman that he loves fell into my lap. I did what a real n---a would do and treated her with respect. She's not up there talking down on me."
