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.
