Everyone has probably heard all about Rihanna and Drake’s are-they-aren’t-they relationship. But did you know that this complicated relationship goes all the way back to 2009? Here’s a look at the Rihanna-Drake Timeline.
Where it All Begins
May 2009: Drake was Rihanna’s first rumored beau-thing after her horrible and violent split with Chris Brown that same year. They were spotted out together at a Lucky Strike Lanes and Lounge in New York. This was a time when Drake was still relatively unknown. Back in 2009, a source said, “She was drinking whiskey and apple juice and making out with him all night… They were really cute together.”
June 2009: The two were once again spotted together at an after-party for the film Year One.
May 26, 2010: You may say this is a long time but this was the release date of Drake’s single Fireworks f.t. Alicia Keys. Read these lyrics and weep, “Who coulda predicted Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me? What happened between us that night, it always seems to trouble me.” Hmm, what could this mean?
Drake was asked about the song in an interview in New York Times where he revealed the nature of their relationship. He said, “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear…”
Some Secrets are Coming Out Now
October and November 2010: Rihanna’s single What’s My Name f.t. Drake was released and the two starred in the song’s music video together. Rihanna was reported to be dating Matt Kemp (Los Angeles Dodger’s outfielder).
November and February 2011: Rihanna was quoted saying this about Drake, “We just became friends and we left it at that. We get along really well.” Then the two gave a sexy performance of What’s My Name at 2001 Grammy awards after Rihanna was no longer dating Matt Kemp.
October 2011: A little bit of a rewind but Drake did an interview for Elle magazine where he gave insight into his feelings about Rihanna. He talked about how she was the first famous girl who gave him any attention. He explained how he put more meaning into their relationship they he should have but it wasn’t Rihanna’s fault.
June 2012: The main event of their story. The infamous Chris Brown and Drake brawl at a nightclub. It’s up in the air if this was a feud over Rihanna but Chris Brown and Rihanna were reported together at the time.
What About Now?
Rumors have been flying around about their relationship since last August. The two have denied a romantic relationship with each other. However, February of this year, the two were reported gallivanting through Paris while Drake was there for a performance. In March, the two were spotted in both Amsterdam and London together. What a cute little European romance.
