Well, maybe it was all a little too good to be true. The late night selfie, the onstage declaration of the love, the debated curve seen ’round the world, the way Rihanna only shouted out Barbados, not Drake, in her VMA Vanguard acceptance speech. Sigh.
After a petty Instagram post from Rihanna this weekend, it seemed all was not right in paradise. Then, like clockwork, E! News reported that Drake and Rihanna have broken up. Hey, they would know. As usual, the article cites multiple anonymous sources, but includes accounts of Drake making out with a new boo India Love at a Toronto Blue Jays game this weekend. The similarities between the two women are… striking.
Except, of course, it’s Drake so things gets juicier — according to E! there are rumors that Love’s ex-boyfriend Cliff Dixon hooked up with Rihanna while he was still dating India. This fuels the suspicion that he might just be hooking up with India to irk Rihanna — that doesn’t sound like the behavior of a healthy, loving partner, does it?
If that’s the case, then Rihanna’s Instagram was the least petty move in this whole affair. Of course, Drake just had to cancel his last tour dates due to an ankle injury, so he’s not in the best place right now either. But don’t worry, he’s heading to Europe next year. Just don’t count on Rihanna showing up as a surprise guest for any of those shows.
