Drake and Rihanna are reportedly heating up as the dating rumors continue to swirl.
Amid reports claiming that Rihanna was reluctant to get serious with Drake after the two allegedly rekindled their dating relationship earlier this year, Drake is now changing his ways to prove to Rihanna that he’s ready to settle down.
A new report by Life & Style is claiming that Drake has proven himself to be a changed man since reconciling with Rihanna and has reportedly been so keen to show the star that he’s serious about their relationship that he’s been staying away from distractions while on the road for his “Summer Sixteen Tour.”
“All those women that flock to his trailer, bus and VIP sections to be with him are seeing a changed man,” an insider recently told the magazine, admitting that Drake even opted to “close off the VIP section” while out in New York earlier this month.
It’s thought that Drake and his crew hit the big city clubs while the rapper was on the East Coast for his four tour stops at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on August 4, 5, 6, and 8 but wasn’t about to let himself suffer from a wandering eye amid the Rihanna relationship reconciliation rumors.
According to a source who spoke to Life & Style, Drake “told bouncers not to let any women in” while partying at 1OAK nightclub in the big apple earlier this month.
The reports come shortly after it was revealed that Rihanna was reluctant to settle down and get serious when it comes to her relationship with the “Hotline Bling” rapper because of his partying ways.
“He’s always throwing crazy parties with butt naked women,” an insider close to the reconciled couple recently told Hollywood Life, “and Rihanna doesn’t have time for that.”
“[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 insider continued as the dating reports continued to swirl around the two. “If it ain’t Rihanna, it will be another girl.”
Claims that Drake is now staying away from other women to prove to Rihanna that he’s ready to settle down come shortly after E! News revealed that the two are, in fact, officially dating again and confirmed that it was Rihanna who was dragging her feet when it comes to getting serious.
“Rihanna loves Drake, but is still not ready to put a title on them,” the site said, admitting that Drake has revealed to his “Work” and “Take Care” duet partner that he’s ready to date her exclusively on numerous occasions.
“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 revealed.
“Drake would make her his girlfriend in a second if he could,” E! News’ insider continued shortly before Drake also made a very public dating declaration about their relationship while on stage with Rihanna in Canada.
Drake made it pretty clear that he has big plans to settle down with Rihanna when the two hit the OVO fest stage in Toronto, Canada, earlier this month, telling the superstar in front of an excited crowd, “You showed up two nights in a row for my city. You might have to go half on a baby.”
Us Weekly also claimed that Drake then told Rihanna that she was “looking good” before describing her as being “the greatest entertainer in the world.”
Drake and Rihanna have yet to officially confirm that they’re dating again, though People reported back in May that the two had actually been “secretly dating for months.”
