Young Money star Drake is once again getting attached to romance gossip involving a female R&B entertainer with reports claiming he is now latched onto Roc Nation protege Rita Ora.
While merely pure speculation as of now, reports claim they have begun flaunting their romance.
Rapper Drake sparked romance rumours with music sensation Rita Ora when he hired her as his support act for the UK tour. The two have already worked together on several tracks, but it seems their professional relationship has blossomed into a romance - they were seen kissing backstage at a gig here Monday, reports thesun.co.uk. "Ora and Drake have been good friends for a while now but things seemed more serious this week. They were all over each other backstage at the gig on Monday and weren`t trying to hide it," a source said. Drake had previously dated Rihanna, while Ora was linked to Rob Kardashian. (Zee News)
The love hype reportedly began buzzing around mid-April.
An insider has revealed that Drake is now dating "R.I.P." singer Rita Ora, who most recently dated reality show star/sock salesman Rob Kardashian. The two musicians have reportedly been flirting for months, but Rita didn't hook up with Drizzy until she and Rob called it quits. She was allegedly getting pressure from her handlers to dump Rob because the relationship wouldn't be good for her career, and MTO not-so-subtly implies that Jay-Z was the one responsible for pushing her to be with Drizzy instead.

Recently, Drizzy opened up about experiencing some past romance woes.
"I fell for somebody I liked so much. So, so much. Not a celebrity, just a normal girl. "She was like, 'I won't be in a relationship with you, you're a rapper and I think more of myself than to go through the (expletive); I can't read the rumors every day whether they're true or not.' That killed me. D*mn, it was a lose/lose, a fight I can't even fight because she's already bowing out." (AZ Central)
Lst fall, the rapper reflected on past crushes involving Young Money labelmate Nicki Minaj and singer Rihanna.
"I don't know if we were really pretending. I'd marry Nicki. I think Nicki would be one of the only people that would understand me at the end of all of this and be able to love me," Drake reveals about his Young Money group member. "I guess I thought it was more [with me and RiRi]. That was the first girl with any fame that paid me any mind. You spend days reading about this person in magazines. All of a sudden you have this number-one song and you're at some birthday party and there she is. And you're just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some sh--ty-a** hotel who got invited to this party on a whim. That's just how it happened." (Elle Magazine)
