Drake reportedly ended his romantic dinner date with Rihanna over the weekend with a kiss.

The rapper was involved with the pop star in 2010 and 2011. They reportedly rekindled things in July this year after Rihanna called time on her relationship with singer Chris Brown.

On Friday night Rihanna and Drake apparently enjoyed an intimate dinner date in New York City, which ended with a kiss.

“He gave her a hug and kissed her on the cheek,” an onlooker told “It... was just Drake being himself. He was such a gentleman. He had one of his muscle [bodyguards] scoot her chair back, he stood up after she did and he told her she ‘looked beautiful as always.’”

Rihanna dated Chris on and off since 2008. It was previously reported that Drake had anticipated Rihanna and Chris' split for a while, with the 26-year-old allegedly telling friends he has never stopped loving the Barbadian beauty.

“He wasn’t trying to be all up in the mix while she was figuring sh*t out with Chris and going through his bulls**t,” the source revealed. “He was nice, gave [Rihanna] her space and the time she needed to do her and figure out her relationship or whatever the f**k she was calling it this last time with [Chris].”

Despite the signs pointing to a potential romance, friends say Rihanna is happy being single. The insider added that at the moment Drake is just glad they are spending time together.

“Let’s be clear, they’re friends,” added the source. “Rihanna isn’t thirsty for a dude. She likes chilling with Drake and now that [Chris] is off her plate, he’s been hollering at her and she’s been answering.”

The New York Post first reported the news about Drake and Rihanna's Friday night meet-up.

“They were in very good spirits and were dancing and singing. Drake and Rihanna seemed to be just friends enjoying a fun night out,” a source told the paper.
