Any bad vibes between Drake and Rihanna after their very public 2016 romance cooled off have passed. E! and The Shade Room report that Rihanna made an appearance at the rapper’s birthday party at Poppy nightclub on Monday night—and it wasn’t a brief visit either. Lyrica Anderson, who posted an Instagram Story of her and RiRi there, confirmed it was a “girls’ night out” and a “fun time!”
E! was told by a source that Rihanna “stayed for several hours [at Drake’s party]. She was with two girlfriends and was escorted to Drake’s table by security. Her and Drake were talking for a while and were smiling and laughing. It seemed like a very pleasant interaction, and they looked like they were having fun together as friends.”
RiRi generally enjoyed the party: “Rihanna was dancing to the music and bobbing her head and seemed to be in a good mood. The whole vibe was very chill,” the source detailed. “Drake had a huge smile on his face and looked excited to see Rihanna when she arrived.”
The Shade Room additionally reports, via its own sources, that “nothing too crazy happened but Drake pulled a cute move. He had McDonald’s delivered to the club for Riri and her whole crew.” Anderson shared an Instagram Story of that McDonald’s delivery, writing, “When Drake brings McDonald’s to the club.”
The last update Rihanna gave on her relationship with Drake was in 2018, when she suggested they didn’t have much of a relationship then during a Vogue interview. “We don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is,” she said. Rihanna, by the way, is now dating billionaire businessman Hassan Jameel and has been for the last two years.
