The Real Rea­son Be­hind Their Split We thought Drake and Riri were ready to go the dis­tance, but af­ter just a cou­ple of months, Look can re­veal the real rea­son it hasn’t worked out…

When Ri­hanna posted a cryp­tic mes­sage to her 44.9 mil­lion fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram last week it was a nod to some­thing much big­ger.

The Bar­ba­dos-born star was at­tend­ing a fam­ily chris­ten­ing back in her na­tive Bridgetown, but her on-off beau Drake wasn’t by her side for the oc­ca­sion. How­ever, it wasn’t just that which caused the ‘have they/haven’t they split’ ru­mour mill to go into over­drive.

It was Riri’s post the day be­fore, say­ing: ‘None of my exes are mar­ried or in happy re­la­tion­ships so it’s safe to say I wasn’t da prob­lem’ fol­lowed by a hash­tag and a tro­phy emoji. We had to ques­tion why the 28-year-old, who was sup­posed to be all loved-up with rap­per Drake, was hark­ing back to her exes – in­clud­ing the likes of singer-song­writer Chris Brown, Leonardo Di­caprio and rap­per Travis Scott – and whether she was now in­clud­ing Drake in this cat­e­gory.

But now we know. We’re told that the pair split again last week af­ter a series of rows over her ex, with a pal ad­mit­ting: ‘Ri­hanna and Drake’s re­la­tion­ship is hang­ing by a thread. Drake was ir­ri­tated by how she till


still seemed to be “ob­sessed” with Chris Brown – and the cryp­tic mes­sage she posted about him be­ing un­happy just added to the prob­lem.’

Sources claim Ri­hanna spends a lot of time look­ing Chris up on so­cial me­dia, check­ing who he’s be­ing linked with, de­spite the fact that they split in 2013.

The source con­tin­ues: ‘Even though she doesn’t want to be in a re­la­tion­ship with Chris again, she doesn’t want any­one else to be ei­ther.’

In­sid­ers say Drake’s asked Ri­hanna to stop, claim­ing it ‘makes him re­ally un­com­fort­able and in­se­cure’, and that she said she would ‘cool it off ’.

But Drake’s yet to be con­vinced by Ri, who’s cur­rently on a break from her Anti World Tour, which is due to wrap in Abu Dhabi on 27 Novem­ber.

‘Drake kept ask­ing if Ri was com­mit­ted to their re­la­tion­ship or if she’s still hold­ing out for a re­union with Chris,’ says Look’s in­sider. ‘Ri­hanna hates that he thinks that and says he’s para­noid and needs to stop tak­ing out his in­se­cu­ri­ties on her.’

Just when we thought rap­pers could only be ro­man­tic if they rhymed about their feel­ings over a beat, Drake, 29, came along and blew that the­ory out of the wa­ter. He gushed about Ri­hanna at the MTV Video Mu­sic Awards, telling the world that he’s been ‘in love’ with her since he was 22, be­fore pre­sent­ing her with an award.

He again pro­fessed his love for her when she joined him on stage at a gig in LA last month, call­ing her ‘in­cred­i­ble, beau­ti­ful and tal­ented’. So when they got match­ing camo shark ink­ings too, we thought this time they were for keeps.

But it emerged last week that Drake had been spot­ted out with 20-year-old Cal­i­for­nian model In­dia Love (real name In­dia Love West­brooks). She at­tended some of Drake’s Sum­mer Six­teen Tour shows where she In­sta­grammed her­self back­stage – and Drake re­port­edly dated her sis­ter Crys­tal when he took her to Coachella last year.

Rub­bing salt into Ri­hanna’s wounds, In­dia – who fa­mously dated rap­per The Game – also pre­vi­ously dated Riri’s ex-flame, bas­ket­baller Cliff Dixon. Uh-oh.

So it’s no sur­prise that Riri has been left reel­ing. A source tells us: ‘She and Drake were spend­ing more time ar­gu­ing about his in­se­cu­ri­ties over Chris than hav­ing fun to­gether. But it was still up­set­ting for her that it was Drake who called time on their union.’

Amid the ru­mours, last Mon­day Drake pulled out of five tour dates af­ter doc­tors or­dered he rest his in­jured an­kle, while re­ports claim Chris sent Ri­hanna presents and flow­ers in the wake of the split.

Our in­sider adds: ‘If Drake feels he can’t ever es­cape the shadow of Chris, he’d rather walk away than be tor­tured by his in­se­cu­ri­ties.’

Come on guys, sort it out – your ro­mance is lit­er­ally Too Good to throw away…‘
