After Drake poured his feelings for Rihanna at the 2016 MTV VMAs, it seems like the couple is getting even more serious.
Rihanna and Drake have been spotted a lot together in recent days. The “Needed Me” singer even got a tattoo on her ankle that symbolizes Drake’s adoration for her. Rihanna’s new tattoo has a “special meaning,” reports E! Online. She has gotten a tattoo of a camouflage shark on her ankle, which is a reference to one of Rihanna’s dates with the rapper, who took her to an aquarium in Toronto where he bought her a stuffed shark. Celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang shared a photo of Rih’s new ink on his Instagram page.
The two artists have taken their relationship to the next level ever since Sunday night’s VMAs, where Drake confessed that he’s been in love with the “Work” singer ever since he was 22-years-old. Since then, Drake and Rihanna have been spotted in Miami, where E! Online even posted the photos of them kissing inside a packed E11even nightclub.

Sources told the outlet that Drake and Rihanna spent most of the night “kissing, hugging and dancing close to one another.” They also stayed at the VIP table throughout the whole time. While Drake performed on stage, Rihanna couldn’t take her eyes off of him as she danced away.
Although they spent time at the club together, Rihanna and Drake arrived at separate times. Rihanna arrived around 2:00 a.m. while Drake entered the nightclub at 2:30 a.m. Both of them left at 3:30 a.m., separately and five minutes apart.
“Rihanna and Drake were happy, not hiding and totally affectionate in front of everyone. At one point they were kissing and holding each other. They seemed very comfortable with each other. Besides for when he was performing, they didn’t leave each other’s side. They looked like they were having a great time.”
At the Miami stop of Drake’s Summer Sixteen Tour, he brought out Rihanna as his surprise guest. After she performed, Rihanna and Drake kissed on stage, in front of all of their fans, reports People.

On Sunday night, Drake presented Rihanna with the Video Vanguard Award at the awards ceremony. But, before RiRi accepted her award, he poured his heart out for her on stage.
“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world,” Drake said as tears welled up in his eyes. “All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry.”
Sources previously confirmed to People that Rihanna and Drake have been secretly dating for the past few months. Obviously, the rapper is “very smitten” with his “Work” collaborator.
“They’ve been secretly dating for a while now and are very happy together. Rihanna is the most beautiful girl Drake’s ever been with, and he treats her like a princess.”
Drake’s former girlfriends won’t be happy to hear that. The “Hotline Bling” rapper has been linked to tennis player Serena Williams and model Hailey Baldwin. Meanwhile, Rihanna has been linked to various men, including rapper Travis Scott, Formula One race car driver Lewis Hamilton, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, and R&B singer Chris Brown.
Drake and Rihanna have been involved since they first collaborated in 2010 on their hit songs “Take Care” and “What’s My Name.” But the dating rumors picked up steam earlier this year with their killer chemistry in their performances and music videos for “Work.”
