rihanna: ‘i’m so over it’
‘I’m So Over It’
After a dramatic few weeks and a bitter love triangle, Riri has finally had enough
Rihanna has never been one to put a man ahead of her career (as Look reported in January, one reason why she split with Drake in October was her busy work schedule). But now Riri, 28, has sworn off men after several dramatic weeks negotiating the tense love triangle between her on-off beau Drake and her former BFF Jennifer Lopez.
Rihanna was apparently ‘hurt’ by the shock news that Drake and J-LO were getting close, after finding out from an industry insider – a mark of total disrespect in her eyes. Soon after, Drake threw shade at their 2016 duet Work, publicly declaring it to be ‘an old vibe’ at his New Year’s Eve do.
But despite the drama-filled start to January (which saw Ri apparently cut both of them off and unfollow J-LO on Instagram), the singer has relented slightly after Drake, 30, reportedly made a series of grovelling apologies. Last week, he even called Ri ‘the queen of everything’ at his London gig. But while Ri is considering her response, J-LO, 47, is apparently far from impressed. ‘I’m sure it’s hard
for Jen that Rihanna and Drake are still in contact,’ says a close pal.
While Drake and Ri have smoothed out their issues, Look thinks we’ll be waiting a while for a full reconciliation between the former bezzies. ‘Rihanna thinks it’s a major overreaction,’ says another insider. ‘She’s just friends with Drake. She wants Jen to back off. She’s just over it all.’
Despite Rihanna’s Twitter row with Azealia Banks a couple of weeks ago (which saw the pair post each other’s mobile numbers online after fighting over America’s immigration policy), Ri is said to be bored with the drama and wants to focus on her career. ‘There’s something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world,’ she said last week.
Rihanna’s confirmed her second Fenty X Puma show at Paris Fashion Week later this month. Next up is her appearance in TV series Bates Motel (which hits US screens next week), the film Ocean’s Eight and our sources say she’s also keen to land a new Disney film following animated movie Home – but that sequel might be thrown into jeopardy as J-LO provided the voiceover for Rihanna’s character’s mum. Awks.
‘Rihanna hasn’t completely given up on Mr Right,’ says our source. ‘I know she desperately wants children too. But she’s just got more going on for her at the moment and she’s not going to settle.’ Too bloomin’ right, Riri.
