Drake spilled his love for Rihanna at the VMAs this year…

The Controlla rapper decided to confess his love for RiRi with the most adoring speech, telling the huge audience: ‘She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old.’

*Cue every girl’s heart in the world MELTING*.

Rihanna swerved Drake on stage when he went in for the kiss

Except, it then got uncute, very quickly. Because the entire audience then watched as Drake went in for a smooch, arms wide, with Rihanna, and she swiftly shaded him with a quick turn of the head, offering her cheek instead.


And Twitter had a whole load of sympathy for poor, rejected Drake.

However, some had a different theory as to why Rihanna decided to shade Drake that night.

‘My theory on the #Drake #Rihanna *kiss* is that she didn’t wana ruin her bomb ass lipstick or night about her achievements-not her love life’, one viewer tweeted.

However, things weren’t all bad for the rapper, as later on, he was seen meeting the Bajan beauty’s parents backstage. YEAAAASSS.

The close pals then spent the night partying together at trendy hotspot Up & Down, before Drake took to Instagram to share a 3am selfie of himself kissing RiRi’s cheek, writing:

‘This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us! You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you! @badgalriri.’

At least he got his happy ending, eh?
