Sorry, Rihanna, but Drake's Got a New Basketball Buddy

May 5 2014 - 6:54am

Drake traded Rihanna [1] for Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo [2] when he sat next to the actress and her husband, Chris Ivery, at a Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors basketball game in NYC on Friday night. The rapper, who is maybe-sorta-possibly dating Rihanna [3], posed for a cuddly photo with Ellen, which she posted to Instagram [4], writing that she was "playing nice." (Ellen is a big Nets fan while Drake, who is originally from Toronto, was probably there to support his home team.)

Ellen hit up the basketball game after wrapping up filming for the 10th season of her hit ABC show. The finale, which will air on May 15 [5], will see Ellen's onscreen buddy Sandra Oh [6] leaving the show after acting alongside her for a decade. Ellen honored her friend and fellow actress [7] when they finished filming in April, writing, "So proud of the work we've done together. We've laughed, we cried, we've kicked some serious acting ass together."
