Fans might be getting excited about the prospect of Drake and Rihanna finally getting together, but according to Drake's dad, people need to dial back their enthusiasm. Caught by TMZ cameramen, Mr. Graham was asked his thoughts on Drake and Rihanna's relationship. "They're friends, they've been friends for years," he said when first asked about the pair. When asked whether he was happy about them "settling down" together, he replied "I don't know about settling down. No, they're friends."
Then the kicker came when one of the cameramen asked if he was at least happy to see them in a relationship. "There's no relationship, they're friends," he replied curtly, seeming to cut off any speculation on his part about the nature of their relationship.
It might be tough to hear for fans of Aubrih, but the response could also just be Mr. Graham not trying to fan tabloid speculation about his son's relationship.
Still, it's hard to ignore all of the very obvious and very public signs that Drake and Rihanna are once again more than friends. First, Drake congratulated Ri on her Video Vanguard award with a bilboard and then publicly declared that he had been in love with Ri since he was 22-years-old at this year's VMAs. Many people speculated that Ri curved Drizzy's attempt at a kiss onstage, but a new angle pretty much proved that the kiss really did happen. Since that night, they have been spotted out partying several times together and they even got matching shark tattoos.
Mr. Graham was asked about the tattoos, and had a hilarious response to the paparazzi. "I gotta tattoo of you on the back of my…" he said while pointing to his neck, insinuating people get tattoos of things all the time.
