Rihanna and Drake sent the rumour mill into overdrive after unveiling the steamy music video to their collaborative track, Work, but it seems that she wasn't just twerking for hits. People Magazine reports that the former lovers have reunited and have been "secretly dating for months."

Earlier in May, the pair took to the stage at the Forum as her Anti World Tour made a pit stop in Los Angeles and he admired the view as she gyrated on him in a sheer, fringed number. According to another source, they later headed to celebrity haunt, The Nice Guy, where they piled on the PDA as they "danced all night together."

RiRi briefly dated the OVO star in 2009, following her very public split from Chris Brown. They were romantically-linked again in 2014 when she supported him on his Would You Like A Tour? tour, and they enjoyed a string of romantic dates. And it looks as if they are back on.

"They have been keeping it a secret because this time around, they want to do it right and keep their relationship private," says the source of the couple.

"We're not just forcing the story. We have genuine energy between us," Drake told Zane Lowe earlier this week on Apple Music's OVO Sound Radio. "We do great music together... I think [our chemistry is] what makes the records better."

But while it is obvious the pair have great chemistry, an insider tells Page Six that it's nothing more than a PR stunt to ramp up publicity. "If you ask her, she says she's single. They do these shows together, and every time he goes to her show and performs, people start saying they're dating."

Drake previously admitted that he was left heartbroken when she called time on their whirlwind romance. "At the time it hurt, but she didn't mean to. I'll never put that on her," he told Elle Magazine.
