When Drake was a no-show at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on May 1, we couldn’t help but wonder if his absence had something to do with Rihanna. But HollywoodLife.com found out EXCLUSIVELY what the Canadian rapper was doing without his gorgeous girlfriend.
While Rihanna was busy accepting her prestigious Artist of the Year award at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that her boyfriend Drake was in New York City celebrating a friend’s birthday.
Drake–His Guys Night Out Revealed
No need to worry about rifts between Drake and RiRi — though the two switched coasts on May 1, the handsome rapper was just in New York City to spend time with his buddies and celebrate a friend’s birthday. It was a guys night out affair, with Drake and his crew rolling into the Ainsworth in Gramercy to party.
“They got there at 11pm, and Drake arrived with eight people — all guys,” an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They were there to watch the Clippers game and celebrate his friend’s birthday. The entire restaurant sang happy birthday to his friend.”
Sounds like Rihanna doesn’t need to worry, as the night out was your run of the mill guys night, full of revelry… and fried food.
“They were overheard saying a few times, ‘Yea Drizzy!'” the source also says. “They had the spinach dip, hot wings, steak sandwich, thai kale salad, filet mignon, fish sandwich. They drank Ciroc and Hennessy.”
Finally, at the end of the night, “the bill was $800 and the birthday boy paid and left a $150 tip,” the insider adds.

Drake may have also been celebrating how sexy his girlfriend is. After all, another source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that he supports Rihanna’s recent decision to bare it all in a Lui magazine.
“Drake would never complain or criticize Rihanna‘s sex appeal because in his mind, she’s FLAWLESS! Nobody does it better than her. She’s grown and sexy, with a banging body and if she wants to wear her birthday suit all day long, he’s down with that,” the source told us EXCLUSIVELY.
