We totally saw this coming here at HollywoodLife.com. First, we revealed that Drake recently told Rihanna that she was being too “needy” and that he wanted space to focus on his career. Then we brought his revealing new rap lyrics about Rihanna to your attention: “We’re not in this for commitment.” Ouch!

We told you that trouble has been brewing between Rihanna and Drake, and now it looks like it’s come to a head.
“Rihanna and Drake had another fight,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He is too in love with her, which has always been the problem. They have been fighting, but that could all change any day now. It is how it always is with them.”
Here at HollywoodLife.com, we’ve also heard that Rihanna and Drake have been having problems.
A source close to Drake tells us EXCLUSIVELY that the rapper has even asked Rihanna for a little space so he could focus on his career. However, the insider adds that Drake “still loves” Rihanna deeply, which leads us to believe that there’s still a chance for them!
Drake Tells Rihanna She’s ‘Too Needy’
Relationships are never easy, and obviously they’re even harder when you’re two superstars with two super-busy schedules! Rihanna and Drake have been spending every possible minute together, but it sounds like that’s just not enough for Rihanna anymore.
“She’s mad at him a little bit because he told her, ‘Babe, you’re too needy. Let me hustle, babe. Let me work.’ That really hurt her feelings because she really loves him and wants things to work out between them,” a source close to the rapper tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Drake and Rihanna are both hugely successful artists but RiRi definitely has a leg up on Drizzy, and he’s trying his best to catch up!
“Rihanna has made her career and her name and Drake’s just trying to do the same thing,” another source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He has goals and ambition and that’s first and foremost in his mind. If Ri can’t understand that then maybe it wasn’t meant to be. He does still love her.”
The thing is, Rihanna does totally understand and admire Drake’s ambition — she’s just acting out because she really misses him and the romantic quality time they spent together in Malibu.
“She’s being stubborn. When he told her she’s too needy, she was like, “All right, I’ll show you needy,” and she’s been doing her own thing since then, trying to make him miss her.”
If this new report is true, it sounds like Rihanna’s plan may have backfired. But we still have faith that Drake and Rihanna can find love in a hopeless place.
