A new report claiming Drake is “lusting after Rihanna” now that she’s dating Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel is entirely made-up. Gossip Cop can expose this bogus story.

HollywoodLife is pretending to have “exclusive” details about how the rapper is pining for his ex-fling after seeing her with another man. A supposed “source” tells the site, “Drake has always had a thing for Rihanna, and still does. They’ve hooked up and tried dating numerous times over the past, but it’s never worked out to be a permanent thing, and that’s something he regrets to this day.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to theorize, “If they did try to date again it would likely never work out because it’s all about the passion and sex with them, and when every day life starts to creep in they inevitably start drifting apart.” The “source” concludes, “But that doesn’t stop Drake lusting after her, and he can’t help thinking that Rihanna could be the one that got away.”

Of course, HollywoodLife routinely pretends to have insider knowledge about celebrities when it doesn’t, so Gossip Cop was hesitant to buy this latest story. Our doubts were confirmed after checking with a source close to Drake, who exclusively assures us no one in the rapper’s inner circle gave the webloid this scoop. The site is arbitrarily dragging Drake into Rihanna’s new romance under the guise of having “exclusive” insight about the situation, but it’s all bogus.

Unfortunately, this wouldn’t be the first time we’ve had to call out HollywoodLies, as it’s known, for purporting to know the rapper’s innermost feelings. Gossip Cop recently busted the site for pretending to know Drake’s stance on marriage and children. We also recently debunked the webloid’s phony claim that Drake urged Rihanna to dump Jameel. This latest article is similarly fabricated.
