Rihanna reportedly doesn’t want to make her relationship official with Drake because she doesn’t like titles.

The “Kiss It Better” hitmaker and 29-year-old rapper rekindled their on-off romance last month and now insiders say the only reason the Bajan beauty hasn’t confirmed they are dating is because she doesn’t want to be labeled as in a relationship.

A source said, “Rihanna and Drake are hanging out a bit more lately. Rihanna loves Drake, but is still not ready to put a title on them.”

The 28-year-old R&B superstar is in no rush to settle down and is taking each day as it comes despite the “One Dance” star being besotted with her and wanting to make their relationship official.

The source told E! News, “Drake would make her his girlfriend in a second if he could. It’s more on Rihanna, though. They both care about each other and are having a good time spending time with each other. Drake has expressed to Rihanna that he only wants to date her and only her, but she wants to take day by day this time around.”

However, the pair are believed to be completely loved-up and things are “progressing nicely” between them.

The insider added, “Things are great though and their connection is really strong. Things are progressing nicely.”

Rihanna and Drake were first linked in 2009 and when he joined her on stage during her Manchester gig recently, he claimed she has been responsible for breaking his heart.

He said, “Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I’ve ever seen. She goes by the name of Rihanna … I’m getting my heart broken.”

Meanwhile, Drake recently ended a brief fling with Hailey Baldwin, but he has always wanted to make things work with Rihanna.

A source said, “Hailey was a fling, but Drake has always wanted to make things work with Rihanna … They are still dating. Things get more serious when they’re in the same place.”
