Rihanna and rapper Drake spend steamy night together

RIHANNA and Drake reportedly spent the night together after an intimate dinner.

The pair were spotted cuddling up together during a late-evening meal before heading back to the Bajan beauty's hotel after the rapper watched the 'Pour It Up' singer perform in Dallas,Texas on Monday night (US time).

Rihanna, 25, previously dated the 'Hold On, We're Going Home' hitmaker during her on-off relationship with Chris Brown - which famously resulted in a club brawl between the rapper and the 'Fine China' singer - and sources believe the rendezvous could reignite their romance.

An insider told HollywoodLife.com: "Let's just say it's easier for a [girl] to go to familiar territory than it is for her to get out there and [be with someone] new."

While the duo reportedly enjoyed one night of passion together, neither Drake, 26, or Rihanna are ready to jump into a relationship just yet.

The source explained: "You've got to remember, Rihanna has done a lot of growing and Drake's a real [guy] so there's not really any expectations that come with what they did. They're both adults and can compartmentalise things."

News of their steamy date came shortly after Ellen Degeneres quizzed Drake about his love life on her talk show, during which he admitted that he will always love Rihanna.

He blushed: "Yeah great girl. We had our moment. [I will] always support and have love for her and yeah."
