Are Rihanna and Drake dating again? The previously-linked couple was spotted out and about during the recent 2013 MTV Video Music Awards weekend in Brooklyn, New York. Sources indicate that the two were on a date, and a patron of the restaurant they were at even claims he was kicked out of his seat by a bodyguard for one of the two.
An Aug. 25 report at Vibe.com indicates that the pair was seen dining out together at Sons of Essex in New York during the week, prior to the MTV VMAs taking place. In an interesting twist, the duo was announced as together at the eatery by the chef, Chris Coleman, who tweeted out on Twitter:
"Rihanna and Drake in the House @SonsofEssexNYC by Chef, Chris Coleman @COLEMANCOOKING"
The Wetpaint report also mentions another diner who tweeted that he was kicked out of his seat at the establishment by one of Drake's bodyguard, calling it a "big personal milestone." Apparently, the couple wanted extra privacy while together.
It's believed that Rihanna is the subject of Drake's latest single called "Hold On We're Going Home." The two previously dated back in 2011 but things didn't work out. Since then, Drake has also been involved in a club altercation in New York with another of Rihanna's former flames, Chris Brown.
Both Rihanna and Drake were in attendance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Both were nominated for awards but neither took home any Moon man statues. Drake performed several songs on stage during the event, while Rihanna was more of a spectator in the audience.
