Rihanna shows support for Drake

Rihanna supported Drake at a performance in Las Vegas on Friday (20.05.16).

The 29-year-old rapper took to the stage at the Jewel Nightclub grand opening weekend event at the Aria Hotel while Rihanna - who has reportedly been secretly dating him for months - cheered him on.

According to PEOPLE, Drake surprised fans with a selection of his hits and said: "They want me to do two songs but I got nothing better to do than stay here with you all."

This isn't the first time the brunette beauty has been romantically linked to the rapper as it was thought they also dated briefly a few years ago.

A source said: "They have been keeping it [their relationship] a secret because this time around, they want to do it right and keep their relationship private."

Drake previously boasted about the "genuine energy" he has with the 28-year-old singer after he was pressed on their friendship and collaboration on his track 'Too Good'.

He said at the time: "We're not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music and energy we have is genuine. We have a genuine energy. [I was like] I think I have one that would follow this one ['Work'] up really nicely. It was like a flawless victory when she sent it back. Every nuance, every cadence was perfect ... That's what makes the record."

Meanwhile, the duo's new relationship status will no doubt come as somewhat of a surprise to fans as just a few months ago Rihanna declared she was very much single.

She said: "I'm single right now. And it's not that I'm like, 'Oh, pro single. Yes, I hate men.' I just think that I just have so much on my plate that I can't even find the time to entertain a steady relationship or anything serious ... [I don't even have time to send] a text. Right now it's just crazy."
