Drake turned 30 over the weekend and celebrated with some pretty notable guests — lookin’ at you Taylor Swift! However, his ex-girlfriend Rihanna was clearly missing from all the fun…but the reason why may not be what you expect!
Drake and Rihanna, 28, have been pretty quiet about their relationship — from start to finish — and she was nowhere to be found at his West Hollywood 30th birthday bash at Delilah lounge on Oct. 23. However, her absence wasn’t because of their recent break-up, but because she was in NYC shooting the female-filled Ocean’s Eight!
“He understood,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re still close.” Rihanna and Drake are reportedly still talking, but sources tell HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she has some built up anger after their short-lived relationship went south. “She’s still mad at him for many reasons, mainly because he’s such jerk who won’t commit and wants everything his way,” the insider said. “But they are talking. She hit him up and they’re planning to celebrate.” Just after Rihanna becomes an international movie star filming Ocean’s, obviously.
Rihanna and Drake went public with their romance shortly after he presented her the Vanguard Award at the VMAs with an adorable speech heard ’round the world. It was too good to be true, though, as Drizzy’s wandering eyes reportedly became an issue in the relationship. The “Hotline Bling” singer allegedly cheated on RiRi with Instagram model India Love in early October, according to an E! News source.
Even though Rihanna wasn’t on the birthday guest list, Drake’s shindig was still LIT with A-Listers, including some unlikely additions like Taylor Swift, 26, Katy Perry, 32, and John Mayer, 39– who all happen to be exes/enemies. We see what you’re doing, Drake.
Us also reported that Taylor and squadie Karlie Kloss, 24, were taking pics with other guests all night, including a star-studded snap with Jamie Foxx, 48, and Zoe Kravitz, 27.
Well, we hope that there was no drama on Drake’s special day and that he and RiRi do get to celebrate on their own! HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Rihanna skipping out on Drake’s birthday? Do you think she’s mad or just busy filming? Let us know!
