Rihanna did NOT warn Taylor Swift against dating Drake, despite a bogus webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to HollywoodLife, Rihanna wants Swift to steer clear of her ex-boyfriend after the two were supposedly “spotted flirting heavily” at his 30th birthday party last week. A so-called “source” tells the outlet, “Taylor doesn’t stand a chance with Drake. She ain’t got nothing Drake wants and she certainly doesn’t want the type of headaches and drama he’s capable of giving a woman.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim Rihanna believes a potential romance between Swift and Drake will end badly, and the pop star will “be writing songs about it until she turns 100.” The “source” adds, “Drake’s a deadly spider and Taylor can mess around and get bit if she wants to.” But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Rihanna hasn’t spoken to Swift about Drake, and the site’s story is simply “not true.”

In fact, Gossip Cop already busted HollywoodLife for falsely alleging Swift and Drake were dating. However, an insider exclusively assured us the two are “just friends” and weren’t flirting or getting cozy at his birthday party. Suffice to say, Rihanna hasn’t warned Swift against being with someone she has no intentions of dating.
