Drake has banned Rihanna from speaking to her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
The "Hold On, We're Going Home" rapper has reportedly told his beau he'll only make their relationship official if she agrees to cut all ties with the 24-year-old singer. "Rihanna and Drake are just having fun at the moment. Neither of them are relationship people really. But Drake has made it clear that if things are going to get serious with them, he doesn't want her speaking with Chris. They are never going to get along properly," a source said.
Despite their turbulent past, Rihanna, 26, has never been able to stop complete contact with Chris, who left her bloodied and bruised when he physically assaulted her during an altercation in 2009.
Drake has parted ways with his his PR team.
The "Hold On, We're Going Home" hitmaker was allegedly dropped by his representatives at ID-PR, shortly after complaining about being ditched from the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in favor of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
A source told Billboard.com that the firm, which handled publicity for his third album Nothing Was The Same, as well as his current Would You Like A Tour?, which wraps in London on March 26, initiated the split after the 27-year-old star posted a series of furious tweets, which have since been deleted, about the magazine's decision not to feature him on the cover after the Capote star's tragic death from an apparent heroin overdose last month.
Another source told the New York Post's Page Six that the rapper's comments were "the last straw," as he previously had a lot of drama behind-the-scenes with ID-PR and allegedly hadn't shown up for several other magazine shoots and TV appearances the firm had arranged. "It's a shame that someone with so much talent is surrounded by kids who are burning bridges left and right," the source said.
Rihanna has been partying in Paris with Drake.
The "Pour It Up" singer fueled rumors she was back with her ex by joining him at Soixante Dix Neuf nightclub in the French capital, where Drake was making a personal appearance for the venue's first anniversary on Monday night. The Bajan beauty - who had a brief fling with the rapper in 2009 in the wake of her split from on/off beau Chris Brown - sipped on cocktails made with Belvedere Vodka and watched as Drake took to the DJ booth.
"She didn't want to be seen at all. She kept her head down and charged through to the back of the club with her friends. They had a private space and stayed there most of the time. Drake looked very tired, but was smiling around Rihanna. They chatted, danced a little, and seemed close," a source said.
Apparently for Drake, a "stolen" magazine cover is apparently worth more than honoring a recently departed star.
The 27-year-old rapper and actor was set to appear on the upcoming cover for Rolling Stone magazine when the publication informed him that they would be opting instead to highlight actor Philip Seymour Hoffman's death. Although initially ranting on his Twitter about a misquote from him about fellow rapper Kanye West in the article, Drake then wrote, "They [Rolling Stone] also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue."

Rihanna and Drake left a nightclub together on Friday night.
The former couple fueled speculation they have rekindled their relationship after they were spotted getting into the same taxi outside Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood. The duo, who collaborated on the track "What's My Name" in 2010, tried to keep the fact they were together under-wraps as they left the club separately.
The 25-year-old beauty left first before the 27-year-old rapper followed her out and got into her waiting taxi seconds later, according to the MailOnline website.
An insider recently told HollywoodLife.com that the "Stay" hitmaker began seeing Drake again late last year but they aren't ready to have a "committed" relationship. "They're doing what they do on the low, and they like to keep it that way. They fill each other's needs when they can, and that's how they're choosing to roll," a source said.
Rihanna and Drake reportedly spent the night together after an intimate dinner.
The pair were spotted cuddling up together during a late-evening meal before heading back to the Bajan beauty's hotel after the rapper watched the "Pour It Up" singer perform in Dallas,Texas on Monday night.
Rihanna, 25, previously dated the "Hold On, We're Going Home" hitmaker during her on-off relationship with Chris Brown - which famously resulted in a club brawl between the rapper and the "Fine China" singer - and sources believe the rendezvous could reignite their romance. "Let's just say it's easier for a [girl] to go to familiar territory than it is for her to get out there and [be with someone] new," an insider said.
While the duo reportedly enjoyed one night of passion together, neither Drake, 26, or Rihanna are ready to jump into a relationship just yet. "You've got to remember, Rihanna has done a lot of growing and Drake's a real [guy] so there's not really any expectations that come with what they did. They're both adults and can compartmentalize things," the source revealed.
Drake wants nothing to do with Chris Brown ever again. The rapper is still fuming over his New York City club bust-up with the R&B singer last June, during which several people were injured after note passing about mutual flame Rihanna turned into a bottle-throwing brawl between the two love rivals and their respective entourages.
One year on, Drake has spoken openly about the W.i.P nightclub incident for the first time, insisting he will never patch things up with the "Don't Wake Me Up" hitmaker. Referring to Chris' on/off relationships with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, Drake told America's GQ magazine, "I hear he has everything he could want now. I don't want my name to be synonymous with that guy's name. I really don't. I wish we could sit down ... and talk it out man-to-man. But that's not going to happen."
Amanda Bynes is ''sorry'' for calling Drake "ugly."
The Easy A actress lashed out at the "Best I Ever Had" hitmaker last week, but has now backtracked insisting she's eager to "become friends."
"I'm sorry about the tweets I said about @drake I didn't mean what I said. I hope to become friends with him instead of smashing him!" she wrote on Twitter.
Her comments are a remarkable u-turn from her previous tweets in which she insulted the rapper in a series of verbal attacks. "Drake has the ugliest smile, ugly gums uneven teeth ugly eyes," she had said before deleting the tweet. However, she later took to her Twitter account and added, "I won't deny calling @drake ugly."

Chris Brown and Drake are being sued over their New York City nightclub brawl.
The duo escaped charges following a fight at W.i.P. Nightclub in June 2012, which left a number of people injured including Eva Longoria's former husband Tony Parker and after he filed a civil suit against the club seeking damages after suffering a corneal laceration, W.i.P's owners filed documents insisting all damages should come from Drake and Chris.
