‘People in Rihanna’s circle are saying she is very unhappy about the whole thing,’ the source added.‘Jen is one of her friends in the industry which made her all the more surprised.’ Likewise, JLo split from her backing dancer boyfriend Caspar Smart in the summer following a four-year relationship.Just a few months later, however, Drake and Jennifer Lopez were photographed being affectionate with each other in public.So, it looks like Rihanna and Drake’s romance again hit the skids.
Explaining how they have been secretly dating for ‘a number of weeks’, the source added: ‘The age gap doesn’t bother them.
In fact, Drake went to not one, but TWO of her Vegas shows at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where she has residency, last week.
And now it is thought that the couple – who have a 17 year age gap with Drake having just turned 30 and JLo being 47 – are officially dating, having originally only been linked with reports claiming they were just ‘making music’ together.
When Rihanna was awarded the Video Vanguard Award by MTV over the summer, Drake presented her with the award and a kiss.
He also told the audience that he’s been in love with Rihanna since she was 22 years old.
