Smokescreen? Drake’s Dad Shuts Down Rihanna Dating Gossip


Dennis Graham, the father of rapper Drake, has shut down talk that his son is dating R&B singer Rihanna. Talk had been circulating that the pair are an item, but it seems not according to Graham, who said:

“They’re friends, they’ve been friends for years”

When asked if the pair would be settling down together, he added:

“I don’t know about settling down, no they’re friends. There’s no relationship, they’re friends.”


Talk that the pair had rekindled their romance began to build after 29-year-old Drake admitted that he had been “in love” with Rihanna since he was 22, stating:

“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her, even though she’s younger than me.”

In fact, one ‘source’ even alleged:

“Drake is very committed to Rihanna. They are both mature and ready to commit now. Drake loves Rihanna so much and if it was up to him, he would marry her tomorrow. Things are different this time between them for the better. They want to make this work this time with each other.”

The rumors only increased further when it was revealed that Rihanna had a camouflage shark tattoo on her ankle – apparently as a reminder of a date the pair went on last month! Drake took Rihanna to an aquarium where he bought her a toy shark…


(Do ‘friends’ normally do this?)

What do you think? We’re not 100% sure about this one. OK, so they may be ‘friends’ right now, but we get a funny feeling there is more to their relationship than just that…
