Rihanna and Drake are back again for the third time after several episodes of flirting and breakups.
According to a close source, Drake and Riri are keeping quiet about their relationship because they want it to be private. "They have been keeping it a secret because this time around, they want to do it right and keep their relationship private" the source told People Magazine.
This information is coming on the heels of the success of their smash collabo 'Work' which is still dominating charts globally. If true (which is most likely) this is the third time that Drake and Rihanna are hooking up.
The first time the pair started dating was circa 2011. None of them admitted that they dated publicly but in 2011 during an interview with Elle Magazine Drake opened up and said Rihanna hurt him. "At the time it hurt, but she didn't mean to. I'll never put that on her. I was hurt because I started to slowly realize what it was. I guess I thought it was more" he said.

He further said "That was the first girl with any fame that paid me any mind. You spend days reading about this person in the magazines. All of a sudden you have this number-one song and you're at some birthday party and there she is. And you're just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some s—y-ass hotel who got invited to this party on a whim. That's just how it happened."
The fallout led to a bit of bitterness between the two. At the 2012 MTV VMA when Drake was on stage to receive an award Rihanna was seen telling her friend that Drake was an asshole. After reconciling the two were seen in Paris looking rather intimate in 2014. The two would go across Europe together for the next few months. Unfortunately their romance did not last long again. Now they are back. What is it about the Canadian rap god that makes Rihanna keep going back to him?
Drake is the polar opposite of Rihanna's other boyfriend- Chris Brown. While the R&B star is seen as cocky and brash, Drake is perceived as a kind gentleman. It may just be that whenever Rihanna is tired of dating bad boys she runs back to Drake who treats her like a lady. Maybe Drake has another hold on her that we don't know about.
The Canadian rapper is known to have a strong effect on his ex-girlfriends. Drake has been with Serena Williams twice. Maybe he just knows how to love women better.
Can Drake and Rihanna go the distance this time around. Old habits die hard. I won't be surprised if Rihanna goes back to a bad boy when she is fed up with Drake.
