Drake is single and seemingly ready to mingle with Jennifer Lopez.
According to reports, Drake and Jennifer were spotted getting pretty cozy during a trip to Las Vegas where the rapper was spotted hanging out backstage with the former American Idol judge during her “All I Have” residency in Sin City, sparking rumors of a potential romance.
That’s according to Hollywood Life, who alleged that Drake, who split from Rihanna this past October, was supposedly getting “flirty flirty” with Jennifer during their recent meet up amid claims he’s “obsessed” with Lopez and would even ask her on a date if he thought she’d be interested in dating him.
According to an onlooker who spoke out to the site about Drake and Jennifer’s backstage interactions, the duo allegedly took around two dozen selfies together after Drake headed backstage following Lopez’s show, during which time the “Take Care” rapper supposedly never stopped complimenting the Shades of Blue actress.
“[Drake] couldn’t stop complimenting her, hugging her and you already know he was checking out her banging body from head-to-toe,” the source revealed of Drake and Jennifer’s meeting, alleging that the “Hotline Bling” rapper was seriously “flirty flirty” with Lopez following her show.
“He was flirty flirty with her the entire time, telling her how she’s f*****g ageless and beautiful,” continued the source of Drake’s alleged non-stop gushing over Jennifer. “He was being typical Drake, trying to make [Jennifer] fall in love with him on sight.”
The site’s insider even went on to claim that Drake would be more than open to the idea of dating Lopez, alleging that it’s not out of the question that the twosome may soon be dating amid reports claiming that Drake is “obsessed” with Jennifer.
“If the opportunity comes to date her — he would not say no,” the site’s source claimed of Lopez and Drake, who both became single in 2016 after splitting with Rihanna and breaking up with Casper Smart respectively, potentially dating. “But [Drake’s] respectful, he would pursue her if he thought she would be interested.”
“This is crazy,” continued the insider amid the Jennifer Lopez and Drake dating speculation, “he posted pics of her on his social media at her Las Vegas concert — he never does that.”
While neither Lopez nor Drake have officially spoken out regarding reports claiming that they could soon be dating, both did seriously gush over each other on social media in the wake of their backstage interaction in Las Vegas.
Drake first posted a selfie of himself and Lopez getting close on Instagram on December 11, where he seemingly admitted that he does in fact have feelings for Jennifer, despite recent reports claiming that Lopez is actually looking to get back together with former husband Marc Anthony.
Though Drake didn’t give too much away amid the dating rumors, he posted a snap of himself and Lopez in Sin City alongside a heart eye emoji while teasing “Lotta those,” shortly after the rapper posted a photo from the audience of Jennifer’s “All I Have” show in which he was holding Lopez’s hat.
“Sure I’ll hold your diamond encrusted fitted while you catch this Vegas body #Jenny,” Drake captioned the snap, which showed him holding Jennifer’s bedazzled pink cap during the show.
Jennifer then went on to return the favor prior to the dating speculation hitting the headlines, telling the world that she “loves” Drake by posting a selfie of herself and the rapper backstage at the show to her more than 54 million Instagram followers.
“Look who rolled up to my show tonight to say hi!!” Jennifer captioned the photo of herself and Drake in Las Vegas, even adding the hashtag “#lovehim.”
