Drake is making it pretty clear that he’s ready to settle down and get serious with Rihanna.
After the two seemingly confirmed that they’re back together and officially dating following their public display of affection at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards and a number of cozy sightings since, new reports are confirming that Drake is doing all he can to prove his love and gain Rihanna’s trust.
According to Hollywood Life, Drake has been making a number of romantic gestures for Rihanna in recent weeks because he knows that “actions speak louder than words” when it comes to letting his rumored official girlfriend know how much he loves her and that she can trust him.
“Even though he says he loves her relentlessly, he’s being 100 with her and reassuring her that he wants to be exclusive with her by killing his old ways,” a Drake insider recently revealed after the two appeared to confirm they’re seriously dating.
And it sounds like Drake is proving to Rihanna that he’s a changed man by being completely transparent with the singer amid their big dating reconciliation earlier this year.
“Drake’s given her the code to his phone to show her that he’s not hiding anything and to gain her trust,” an insider alleged of just one of Drake’s big romantic gestures to prove he’s ready to settle down and get serious.
“He’s agreed to always be available to her, to listen to her and understand her feelings,” the source continued.
The latest reports claiming that Drake is staying on the straight and narrow to prove his love for Rihanna come just weeks after Life & Style claimed that the rapper has been changing his playboy ways since reconciling with the “We Found Love” singer, and that includes staying away from potential distractions.
According to a source who spoke to the site last month, Drake has been keeping other woman away while he’s on the road for his “Simmer Sixteen Tour,” and allegedly even told his security team not to allow other women in his VIP section while partying at 1OAK nightclub in New York City recently.
“All those women that flock to his trailer, bus and VIP sections to be with him are seeing a changed man,” the source said, seemingly confirming that Drake is now proving to Rihanna that he’s ready for a serious relationship with her as the dating rumors swirl.
The reports came shortly after it was claimed that Rihanna wasn’t prepared to settle down with Drake, despite the rampant dating rumors, because she allegedly didn’t believe he was ready for a serious commitment.
“He’s always throwing crazy parties with butt naked women and Rihanna doesn’t have time for that,” an insider said of why Rihanna was dragging her heels when it came to seriously dating the “Hotline Bling” rapper.
“[Rihanna’s] got love for Drake but he’s made his bed several times and has proven to her he’s not ready for anything serious,” the source added. “If it ain’t Rihanna, it will be another girl.”
E! News also reported earlier this year that it was Rihanna who was reluctant to settle down, revealing prior to Drake’s romantic VMAs gush that she didn’t want to put a title on their recently reconciled relationship.
“Drake has expressed to Rihanna that he only wants to date her and only her, but she wants to take day by day this time around,” the site alleged, admitting that “Drake would make her his girlfriend in a second if he could.”
But it looks like all that’s now changed, as Hollywood Life claimed that Drake’s sweet VMAs gush, in which he told the world that he has been in love with Rihanna since he was 22-years-old, changed everything in the couple’s top secret dating life.
“Their relationship is stronger than ever and they really are in love. For the first time since they started hooking up, Rihanna now feels confident and secure with Drake,” a source admitted. “[Rihanna] is happy now that they whole world knows, from Drake’s own mouth, how he really feels about her.”
