Good things take time! Drake has been waiting for the perfect opportunity to ‘proclaim his love’ for Rihanna, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. As the newly public couple continue to flaunt their love, read on to see how the rapper FINALLY made his move!
Ladies, can you imagine if we had to make the first move — if we had to call the guy and ask him out?! We have no idea what kind of pressure men are under to initiate a first date. Even a star like Drake, 28, wonders when is the right time to strike. “For Drake, publicly proclaiming his love for Rihanna, 28, is something he had been wanting to do for a while,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He was just waiting for the right opportunity.”
The VMAs were a BIG night for the Barbadian singer. Not only did she win the Michael Jackson Vanguard Video Award, she also fell into Drake’s LOVE TRAP! “He was going to proclaim his love during a concert but instead decided to wait until she received her award,” the source continues. “He wanted to make the night extra memorable and special — and it worked! They have never been happier or stronger as a couple.” As soon as Rihanna accepted her award, Drake kissed her, and they walked off stage.
And the rest is history. Rihanna and the former Degrassi actor have been running at full steam ever since. Their VMAs reunion was followed by a hot and heavy night at E11even nightclub in Miami, where the two were spotted dancing ALL over each other. She was whispering in his ear and getting freaky on the dance floor. Rihanna also just got a new ‘Shark’ tattoo on her ankle after he got her a shark stuffed animal! The ANTI album-maker has been carrying that plush shark around with her everywhere she goes!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Drake and Rihanna will make it last this time?
