Drake and Chris Brown may have once feuded over Rihanna, but it looks like their beef may finally be behind them. A source tells HollywoodLife.com that the ‘Back To Back’ rapper would like nothing more than to see Breezy and Riri get back together, despite the tangled love triangle they once had.
Long before Drake, 28, and Chris Brown, 26, were feuding over Karrueche Tran, the two had a serious, and sometimes violent, beef over their mutual love Rihanna, 27. But perhaps it’s true what they say, time does heal all wounds, because despite all of the back-and-forth over the years, Drake actually wants Breezy and Riri to get back together, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned!

“As far as Chris Brown’s concerned, Drake thinks he and Rihanna are perfect for one another,” a source close to the rapper told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They’ve got that special connection between them and they’ll never stop loving one another. Drake thinks they both need to stop playing and get back in the game together.”
We definitely didn’t see that coming! Especially not after Rihanna openly dissed Drake in her Nov. 2015 cover story with Vanity Fair. When asked about “rumors of sexual liaisons,” the “BBHMM” singer revealed that the last time she was “officially” with someone, it was with she reconnected with Breezy in 2012. Of course, as any true Rihanna fans knows, the Barbados bad girl got back together with Drake in 2014, at which point he was calling her his “girlfriend.” Sadly, their romance fizzled later that year, but they didn’t stop them from acting “couple-ey” at Coachella in April 2015. They two even shared some steamy PDA in a NYC nightclub a month after the music festival.
Don’t worry, as it turns out Drake actually agrees with Rihanna — the two were never officially together, but let it be known, it was all his choosing. “Not to be cocky, but Drake knows he’s the prize. He’s the man, and every women he’s ever been with has wanted to make a husband out of him. Rihanna was one of those women and unfortunately for her, he wasn’t trying to go there with her on that type of commitment level,” our source continued. “That attitude and party animal energy is fun every now and then, but that’s not what he’s looking for long term, especially not in a wife!”
Meanwhile, Rihanna clearly still has a spot in her heart for Chris. “I will care about him until the day I die,” she told Vanity Fair. “We’re not friends, but it’s not like we’re enemies.” Though Riri said she and Chris don’t have “much of a relationship now,” she did admit that she’s still very “protective” of him. Now, that’s sweet!
