Part 5: Just Friends? OK, We'll Buy That
- February 2014: In a Rolling Stone interview, Drake reveals that he doesn't have a girlfriend and that he and Rihanna are just friends, saying, "She's the ultimate fantasy. I mean, I think about it. Like, 'Man, that would be good.' We have fun together, she's cool and sh*t. But we're just friends. That's my dog for life." Sure, Jan.
- March 2014: Drake and Rihanna kick off the month with a series of romantic-looking dates overseas. Rihanna joins Drake on stage during his tour stop in Paris, and they go to dinner after the show. They are also spotted leaving restaurants and clubs together in Amsterdam and London, and the dating rumors pick up speed when they are caught holding hands while leaving a bowling alley in Manchester, England. What is it with these two and bowling?
- April 2014: The pair keeps us guessing about their relationship status weeks later when they step out together — but kind of not together — to watch the LA Clippers play the Oklahoma City Thunder in LA. Rihanna is all smiles while sitting courtside with her best friend, Melissa Forde, snacking on popcorn and snapping selfies with some fellow front-row fans. Meanwhile, Drake sits a bit farther down from his rumored girlfriend and looks equally happy while watching the game. Even though they don't sit together, they meet up during the game for a sweet hug.
