Rihanna and Drake were spotted having a friendly group dinner at Sons of Essex in New York City on Aug. 23 — but was it just a cover-up for hooking up? Read on to judge for yourself!
Rihanna has definitely had her fair share of drama over the years with exes Chris Brown and Drake, but on Aug. 23, the mood was much more low key. Rihanna and Drake were spotted at NYC hotspot Sons of Essex for dinner with a group of people. Were the former lovers there as more than just friends?
Rihanna & Drake In Good Spirits On Dinner Date
Drake arrived with a group of 10 people and Rihanna joined them later, solo, and sat across from him, according to the New York Post. The group was reportedly in good spirits and even did shots!
“They were in very good spirits and were dancing and singing. Drake and Rihanna seemed to be just friends enjoying a fun night out,” a source told the paper.
Bouncers blocked fans from snapping photos. Meanwhile, Drake and Rihanna left separately after the group left a $500 tip.
Could Rihanna & Drake Be Hooking Up Again?
From having a friendly, normal dinner with Drake to acting composed at the MTV Video Music Awards, Rihanna seems to be acting very into Drizzy lately (minus the unimpressed stink eye she seemed to give Drake during his VMA performance). However, she could be playing it cool to disguise anyone from knowing that she’s still hooking up with Drake.
“All the people inside were talking about them hanging together inside [the party],” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. ”They left separately at the same time, but through different exits.”
The two have such intense chemistry from dating and being in sexy and sultry music videos, “What’s My Name” and “Take Care” together that we wouldn’t be surprised if the pair was able to keep their hands off each other for long!
What would Chris say? And what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is this a cover up or are things just friendly between RiRi and Drake?
