This past weekend (May 11), hip-hop superstar Drake, 27, returned to New York City's Meatpacking District hot spot "The Raven" for the second week in a row after telling main squeeze Rihanna that she is "too needy," according to The Hollywood Gossip. The rapper joined friend DJ Spade in the DJ booth, telling club goers to look out for “Johnny Cleveland" aka Johnny Manziel, who was picked up by the Cleveland Browns in the 2014 NFL Draft. Drake partied at The Raven until the early hours of the morning, even posting pics from the night on his Instagram.
According to the reports, Rihanna is upset with Drake because he allegedly told her "babe, you’re too needy. Let me hustle babe. Let me work.’ Rihanna's friend has been telling the press that his comments have really "hurt her feelings."
"She really loves him and wants things to work out between them, but she doesn’t play when it comes to her heart and she’s letting Drake know about it."
The source has informed The Hollywood Gossip that Rihanna is creating distance from Drake now to offset his cramped feeling.
“She’s being stubborn. When he told her she’s too needy, she was like ‘all right, I’ll show you needy’ and she's been doing her own thing. Tying to make him miss her. You know, all this high school s--t.”
A source close to Drake has defended the rapper's harsh words.
“It wasn’t like he was trying to be mean," the source acknowledges. "The way he delivered the message was respectful. He basically told her that he’s on a ‘serious paper chasing mission and wants to get all of it while the getting is good.'”
To prove he is not going to be easily swayed by Rihanna, Drake has been opting to go out and party it up with friends. He is not going to sit at home playing Rihanna's "hard-to-get" attitude change, which she's allegedly been laying on thick to Drake.
As his social media displays, Drake has been having an amazing time at The Raven in NYC without his lady love. The source does confirm that the two celebrities are still very much together, just not joined at the hip, for now.
