Los Angeles - Drake has "never stopped" loving Rihanna.
The 29-year-old One Dance hitmaker has allegedly rekindled his romance with the 28-year-old - whom he had allegedly been dating in 2009 - and has revealed he has always loved the Barbados-born beauty, although it's the Sledgehammer singer who has allegedly been putting off starting a relationship with the rapper.
A source close to the Canadian artist told E! News: "He still loves her and never stopped. Rihanna is the one that's been not wanting to settle down in the past. "They are having fun spending time with each other."
It is alleged the pairs budding romance is all down to their collaboration on their recent hits Too Good from Drake's latest album Views and Work, which is from Rihanna's Anti album.
The source explained: "Their music together got them close again."
And Drake has admitted the reason behind their successful tracks is the "genuine energy" they share.
Speaking previously, he said: "It wouldn't be a record without Rihanna, would it?
"We do well as a team."
Meanwhile, Drake has recently declared during Rihanna's concert , which was held at the Emirates Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester on Wednesday, he is getting his "heart broken" by the creative director of the sportswear brand Puma.
Speaking to the audience during Rihanna's gig, which saw the brunette beauty gyrate on Drake's crotch, he said: ''Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I've ever seen.
"She goes by the name of Rihanna ... I'm getting my heart broken."
