Rihanna, we know you’re not in any rush to make it ‘official’ with Drake. But we’ve seen your face and Drake’s body language and our insider sources at HollywoodLife.com are telling us that your new man worships the ground you walk on — as he should. Rihanna — Drake could be The One.
Rihanna, 26, you deserve to be treated like a queen by a man who loves you, and, guess what — Drake, 27, is That Man. After years of being involved with Chris Brown, 24, who couldn’t give you the commitment you deserved, you are finally falling deeply in love with a man who is making every effort to cement a real relationship with you.
Drake Could Be ‘The One’ For Rihanna
Rihanna, you’re 26, you’re a super star, you’re smart, talented, beautiful, and most important of all — you’re a warm and wonderful woman.
You’re the most loving daughter and granddaughter. You bought your mom, Monica Braithwaite, a magnificent $22 million beachfront mansion in your native Barbados and you financed a new state-of-the-art cancer wing in a hospital, also in Barbados, now named the Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine, in memory of your beloved GranGranDolly, Clara Braithwaite.
Any man should think you’re a precious prize, Rihanna, and at HollywoodLife.com we know that Chris Brown did love you in his way. He deeply regretted assaulting you and did admire and respect you, but he was NOT ready to make any commitment. He freaked out, HollywoodLife.com learned , when you asked him if he would like to have kids with you … in the distant future.
But Drake is not Chris. And he’s been showing you in every way that he can that he loves you and wants to win you over.
He was beaming from ear to ear on April 9 at the LA Clippers game, which you both attended. He looked so happy to be sitting close to you.
Even though you two decided not to sit next to each other so you wouldn’t be featured on the kiss cam, he couldn’t help himself from wrapping you up in a giant hug in front of the entire world. PDA on that level is a major commitment in itself.
But what really shows the level of Drake’s seriousness about you, Rihanna, is how he’s working hard at winning over not just you, but your family, best friends, and “crew.”
On Valentine’s Day, he smartly sent your mother beautiful white roses as well as sending them to you. He knew it was key to get to her heart, too.
Drake has also been wooing your friends and entourage because he wants their stamp of approval on your romance.
“With Drake, he makes sure everyone in the crew is all right and chill and having a ‘good time.’ He even makes sure everyone is happy and has a glass of champagne in their hands,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Drake And Rihanna Are Exclusive And In Love
On April 9, Drake went to LA’s Supper Club with you for a party held in honor of your best friend, Melissa Forde. “He didn’t have to come to Mel’s function,” the insider confides to HollywoodLife.com. “But he did, because he knew that would mean everything to Rihanna, and the world to Mel. He knows they’re practically sisters and he would do anything for his family.”
You see, Rihanna — Drake is willing to go that extra mile or 10 to make you happy and to have your friends and family support your relationship. He knows that it will help you make more of a commitment.
Drake understands that you are gun shy about giving too much of yourself to him. You were so hurt — first physically and then emotionally — by Chris Brown. He knows that you’re wary about opening yourself up to another man who could hurt you.
You’ve learned to be independent to the max. And that’s great.
As a strong woman with an incredibly successful career, you should be independent and self-reliant.
But I think some of that total independence is a result of fear about getting hurt again. You’re really taking your relationship to Drake in baby steps.
Rihanna: Chris Brown Is Firmly In Your Past
First, you asked Drake to be monogamous and he readily agreed. Now, you’re thinking that you could possibly start living together. “She’d love to maybe one day soon see if they can co-exist together and try the whole living with each other, thing,” a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “But she’s not trying to force anything. She wants it to unfold and to let him take control of that.”
Well, Rihanna, Drake is subtly taking control. He’s spending romantic time with you. He’s treating you like a jewel. He’s showing you, your family, and friends, love. He’s making you comfortable with his love without pushing you so hard that you might get scared.
Our sources tell us that Drake has been crushing on you for years, Rihanna, and he has patiently and confidently waited until the time was right to romance you.
Now, Chris Brown is firmly in your past and both you and Drake are free from world tours to spend time together.
Rihanna, you don’t have to think about marriage or forever, but do not discount the very real fact that Drake could be The One.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Drake The One for Rihanna? Let me know.
