Drake may want to turn in his player card. The rapper has a guilty conscience and believes he’s to blame for Rihanna’s recent meltdown. Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details!
Drake, 29, may be responsible for Rihanna‘s meltdown. Toronto’s finest is having quite the guilt trip. The “Big Rings” rapper feels the 27-year-old pop princess’ current mental state is due to him not wanting to commit to her romantically, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
It’s pretty obvious Rihanna’s not having a good week. First, she backed out of her performance at the Grammys. Plus, to add insult to injury, the ANTI artist just announced she’s delaying her tour. And now, Drake’s stepping up to the plate. Only this time, he’s taking responsibility, sort of, for RiRi’s meltdown.
“He feels it’s partly his fault she’s moody. He was flirting with her the entire time they shot ‘WORK,’ knowing all along she wanted something serious, like a commitment, but he couldn’t give it to her,” a source connected to the rapper told HollywoodLife.com. “She was emotional during parts of the shoot, yelling at him from time to time, calling him names and downright angry at him. He feels his player behavior has contributed to Rihanna’s meltdown. He feels bad, yes, but he still isn’t trying to settle down with her or anyone anytime soon.”
We’re told Drizzle tried to make peace with Ri, and even apologize, but to no avail. “He’s called and texted her several times, telling her to hang in there and offering his services by joining her on her tour to help boost excitement, but she has not responded,” the source added. “Drake’s never known her to be this way.” As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, fans are not excited about the ANTI tour, as ticket sales have been far from impressive. “Tickets aren’t being sold and the money people behind her tour don’t want empty arenas, it’s as simple as that,” another source revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “Rihanna hasn’t had new music since 2012 and her new album flopped.”
