Have Drake and Rihanna found love in a hopeless place? After the “One Dance” rapper, 29, professed his love for the “Work” singer, 28, at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, he hit the town with his longtime collaborator and rumored girlfriend on Monday.
Rihanna was spotted out in Manhattan on her way to Nobu wearing a belted white mini-dress and strappy brown heels. Drake went casual in khaki pants, white sneakers, and a leather jacket with yellow detailing.
An eyewitness tells ET that Rihanna stayed at Drake’s hotel overnight and through to dinner the next day after receiving the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The two shared a sweet moment onstage when Drake presented RiRi with her award, and the PDA didn’t stop there.
“They walked in together and never left each other’s side all night,” a VMA after party source tells ET. “He was so attentive to her. His eyes were never off her. They were necking a lot. They would hug and he would kiss into her neck.”
The duo were spotted in the VIP section and were showered with bottles of D’USSE and Armand de Brignac. There were also faux $1,000 “United States of Rihanna” spotted on the scene.
The source adds, “He is so into her.”
Drake’s declaration of love during the VMAs wasn’t the first time he’s expressed his affection for Rihanna, but it may be the most swoon-worthy. The Canadian rapper told the crowd that he had been in love with RiRi since he was 22 years old before praising her talents in the industry.
He also took to Instagram to share a sweet kissing selfie, writing, “This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us! You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you! @badgalriri.”
