Rihanna has achieved a lot since launching her first internationally successful studio album, titled Music of the Sun(2005). However, her relationships have been a little bit more complicated, with the list of men that she has dated including Shia LaBeouf, Drake, Matt Kemp, and Chris Brown.
Her most publicly drama-filled relationship was with Chris Brown, with the couple splitting after he assaulted her. Speaking about the time of the unfortunate incident to 20/20‘s Diane Sawyer in 2009, she revealed the following about what happened that night, saying the cause of the altercation was a text that Chris had received from his ex.
“The more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other, equally as dangerous… It was almost as if he had nothing to lose. It wasn’t the same person that says I loved you. It definitely wasn’t those eyes… It was ugly. I fended him off with my feet … but it was not like, it was not like a fight with each other. I just … I really just wanted it to stop,”
Rihanna finally called the police and he was arrested for assault. Fast forward to recent and definitely happier relationships, she was recently rumored to be dating Drake. However, she shot the rumors down while speaking to Vanity Fair, saying her last real relationship was with Chris Brown. The following is an excerpt on this from the site.
“Rihanna says her last real, official boyfriend was Chris Brown—when they briefly got back together three years after his arrest for assaulting her in 2009,”
This seemed to have thrown major shade at Drake, who was rumored to be dating the “Work” star at the time. However, according to a report by Hollywood Life, Drake didn’t seem to mind Rihanna’s comment. The following is an excerpt on this from the site.
“For once, Drake agrees with Rihanna! Her saying they weren’t an official item is an accurate characterization. Not to be cocky but Drake knows he’s the prize. He’s the man and every woman 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… She’s a lovely woman but she’s too wild and out of control for him. 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!”
Presently, Rihanna is rumored to be secretly dating Leonardo DiCaprio. The two were spotted getting cozy during the recent Coachella Festival. They were reportedly inseparable at the Neon Carnival in the festival, and seemed to have a lot of chemistry. However, their relationship is yet to be confirmed.
