Drake and Rihanna
Leaked images from the promo show the former lovers getting very close

Being one of the sexiest women on the planet has guaranteed that Rihanna is never short of potential suitors.

Amid mounting rumours of a reconciliation between her and ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, it appears that the Bajan beauty has also been cuddling up to former lover Drake.

The pair dated briefly in 2009 following her very public split from Brown. The hip-hop star claimed in an interview with Elle magazine in 2010 that she broke his heart when she called time on their fling.

Drake said: "At the time it hurt, but she didn't mean to. I'll never put that on her."

Leaked stills from the video for their collaboration, Take Care, show the former couple getting very close and suggest sparks are still flying.

In the black-and-white promo directed by Yoann Lemoine, the 24-year-old We Found Love hitmaker is seen in a tender embrace with her Canadian ex-lover.

When quzzed about Rihanna and Drake's relationship, Lemoine hinted that it was a case of art imitating life. "They seemed to be super close and that's what I wanted for the video,2 she told MTV.

Rihanna caused a stir this week after stepping out in New York wearing a see-through black jumper, which exposed her breasts.
