The singer has special plans for the rapper’s 30th birthday
Rihanna has been head over heels for long-time admirer Drake, and she is now planning a romantic vacation for his 30th birthday.
The rapper will be celebrating the big 30 on October 24 and the Work hitmaker’s planned trip will involve visiting Barbados to enjoy some alone time.
A source revealed to HollywoodLife.com: “She’s planning a surprise trip for him to Barbados! It’ll be just the two of them. She’s really excited for this and wants her plan to go smoothly. She’s even told her family about it and they’re expecting to give Drake a huge birthday party.”
But not all will be fun and games for her, as she reportedly has other plans in mind. The star would like to see if Drake is capable of handling a low key adventure that doesn’t involve too much drinking and luxury.
The insider continued: “Honestly, the trip is more for her than it is for him. It’s a test to see if he can give up the clubs, the after parties and the whole turn-up scene with his crew, and do something more low key and special with her.”
Although their romance has never been confirmed, the two have been spotted flirting on numerous occasions and being quite open, too. In fact, they even had matching tattoos to remind them of a trip to an aquarium where Drake bought her a toy shark.
Their tattoo artist, Keith ‘Bang Bang’ McCurdy, subsequently shared the artwork on Instagram with the caption: “Camo shark for my dear friend @badgalriri. Also… I just found out you can zoom on IG- enjoy :).(sic)”
And the birthday boy practically professed his love for the singer as he presented her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this summer, adding: “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world.
All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her, even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry, ladies and gentleman, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016, Rihanna.”
