Rihanna & Drake: Date Night In Canada Again! Are They Back On Even Though Drake Says Rihanna Used Him?

Drake has sure changed his tune about Rihanna! Just one year ago, following their brief courtship, he slammed her in a ‘New York Times’ article for using him. Now? They’re inseparable!

And they’re making an effort not to be seen together: They were each photographed (see above) leaving their hotel separately Sunday night in Montreal—where Rihanna performed as part of her LOUD tour—and spotted later having dinner at Buonnotte restaurant in the city’s downtown.

Sunday night’s outing capped a week of sightings together: Earlier in the day, the pair attended the Formula 1 Race together in Montreal. The previous evening, they were spotted together at a Montreal Club, where they were photographed hanging out, and whispering into each other’s ears.

And there’s more! On Friday night, also in Montreal, they were spotted sitting in a Maybach outside Drake’s hotel before they made a beeline for Terrasses Bonsecours nightclub. And the pair kicked off the “are they” or “aren’t they” buzz last Tuesday night, when Drake joined Rihanna on stage in his hometown of Toronto, where they performed their smash hit “What’s My Name.”

Their seemingly newfound tight relationship comes as a bit of a surprise, considering he told The New York Times last June, “I was a pawn [in our relationship.] You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, wow, this feels terrible.”
