Drake and Rihanna parted ways weeks ago, and now the rapper is reportedly hoping to get revenge on his former girlfriend with the help of his rumored flame, Taylor Swift.
According to a new report, Drake and Rihanna are not on good terms and as false rumors continue to tie him to Swift, the rapper will reportedly use his working relationship with Swift to get back at his on-again, off-again girlfriend with a new song.
"There will definitely be some digs at [Rihanna]," an insider told In Touch Weekly magazine on November 16. "Drake's still devastated by his breakup from Rihanna and is hoping that this will get under her skin."
Drake and Taylor Swift have been working together in recent weeks on a new song and Swift reportedly has high hopes for the upcoming track.
"She is hoping the song is a major hit — better than [her ex] Calvin Harris' song ['This Is What You Came For'] with Rihanna," the insider explained.
Over the summer, Drake professed his love for Rihanna, who he's been linked to on and off for the past several years. A short time later, they began enjoying several outings together in New York City and Miami. They even got matching shark tattoos. However, just weeks later, they called it quits, and Drake has since been linked to Swift.
While the rumors regarding Drake's alleged new romance have been confirmed as false on multiple occasions in recent weeks, the suggestion that he may be dating someone new has reportedly did not sit well with Rihanna. According to one particular report, she demanded that he remove her from his Instagram account after seeing that he had shared a photo of himself and Swift.
"Rihanna's one of the baddest b****es on the planet and she will not be one of Drake's conquests that he puts on his page for bragging rights," a source told Hollywood Life earlier this month. "She texted [Drake] and told him to delete every picture of her off Instagram. She's not a notch on his belt and she sure isn't one of his pieces. [Drake] can play those games with Taylor and parade her all on his social media, but she wants off his page before she reports those pics of her to be inappropriate."
Drake and Rihanna have been linked for years, but Drake surprised everyone when he publicly proclaimed his adoration for the singer during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City in August. With millions watching, Drake revealed that he had been in love with Rihanna since he was just 22-years-old, despite her being in a relationship with Chris Brown at the time.
"The first time I met Robyn Fenty [Rihanna's real name] was in 2005," Drake said, according to a report by Entertainment Weekly. "She was shooting a music video at a restaurant called Avocado in Toronto. The song was 'Pon de Replay' and the director was Little X. I was introduced to her... It's hard to believe that 11 years later we'd come together to create the visual for a song called 'Work.'"
"She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old," Drake continued. "She's one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life I've looked up to her even though she's younger than me."
Immediately after the event took place, Drake and Rihanna went out together in New York City, and on Instagram, he shared a photo of the two of them together. At that point, fans believed the two musicians were official, but unfortunately, their time together didn't last.
