The 31-year-old ‘God’s Plan’ rapper sent fans into a frenzy after it was discovered on Tuesday that he unfollowed his former collaborator on Instagram.
The move comes just five days after Vogue released Rihanna’s June 2018 cover story, in which she was asked about the current state of her relationship with Drake.
We don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is. She told the magazine.
The estranged pair who both dated on and off from 2009 until their recent split in October 2016, worked together on songs like ‘What’s My Name’ in October 2010, ‘Take Care’ in 2011 and ‘Work’ in 2016.
Back at the 2016 MTV VMAs, Drake paid tribute to Rihanna who’s now dating Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel.
While presenting Rihanna with the Vanguard award on stage, he said:
She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life I’ve looked up to her even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry.
