The relationship between Drake and Rihanna goes far beyond musical collaborators, as the two routinely exhibit a chemistry that only comes with closer ties. With their current single "Work" continuing to soar, the question remains of just how close the two are, seemingly teetering in and out of relationship status with each passing year.

As E! News is reporting, the two were spotted partying together Tuesday night (June 28) in London, and shared the stage in Manchester the following evening. Drizzy performed "One Dance," and the two made sure to include "Work"" on the set list, but following Drake's appearance, he let his heart bleed for the singer.

In a fan captured video, included above, Drake can be heard saying, "Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I've ever seen...She goes by the name of Rihanna...I'm gettin' my heart broken."

A source told E! that the two "aren't seriously dating" but do hook up, so that last line may be in reference to Rihanna's many famous romantic interests, including LeBron James and Leonardo DiCaprio. Not that Drake doesn't spread the love himself, but ever the hopeless romantic, perhaps he pines for something more than a fling.

In a 2014 interview, Drake said of dating Rihanna, "She's the ultimate fantasy. I mean, I think about it. Like, 'Man, that would be good.' We have fun together, she's cool and shit. But we're just friends. That's my dog for life."
