Drake and Rihanna romance heats up in Miami

On Aug 30 Drake hosted the first of two back to back Summer Sixteen after-parties at the 24/7 ultraclub E11EVEN Miami following his sold out concert at the American Airlines Arena. The party was a star-studded event with guests including Flo Rida, Future, 'Lil Wayne, DJ Irie and Bow Wow, to name a few. But the person close by his side was none other than his boo, Rihanna.
On Aug 30 Drake hosted the first of two back to back Summer Sixteen after-parties at the 24/7 ultraclub E11EVEN Miami following his sold out concert at the American Airlines Arena. The party was a star-studded event with guests including Flo Rida, Future, 'Lil Wayne, DJ Irie and Bow Wow, to name a few. But the person close by his side was none other than his boo, Rihanna.

Following their coupledom-coming-out party Tuesday night at E11EVEN, Drake and Rihanna were on full display Wednesday night at the Canadian rapper’s second show at the AAA. RiRi showed up onstage and, unlike at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday, she accepted a kiss from her man.

The crowd went especially wild when she threw her arms around her boyfriend. Also appearing onstage but not nearly as viral: Lil Wayne. Following the show, Rihanna’s tattoo artist was backstage and gave Drake a new tattoo before heading to E11EVEN to host another Summer Sixteen after party, where the couple was seen dancing at their VIP table, laughing and taking pictures of each other. While Drake was performing hits like “Jumpman,” “One Dance” and “Energy,” Rihanna was seen dancing and seemingly enamored. Toward the middle of his show, Drake gave out bottles of his Virginia Black Whiskey to the VIP tables. Closing out the night, Drake thanked the E11EVEN family and his fans for two incredible back-to-back nights. Says our backstage spy, “Rihanna and Drake appear to be very much in love.”

More about Rihanna. On Tuesday, the singer will unveil her exclusive PUMA x Rihanna Fenty line of hoodies, sweatpants and track suits at stores in LA and NYC. On Wednesday, the line will be available to only seven stores around the country — the only Florida location is at Foot Locker’s Six:02 store in the Aventura Mall via a pop-up shop. Merchandise is limited, and, says our source, “will remain only as long as it’s available and will not be restocked.” The famous designer of the line, we’re told, will not be at the store.

Star chef Art Smith was seen emerging Monday morning from a sweaty workout with instructor Jason Morss at Flywheel in Boca Raton, about which he tweeted to us later, “What a fun, fun class.”
