Two months ago, we were talking about how Drake was totally and completely in love with Rihanna and how he wanted to marry her and get lots of tattoos celebrating their love. Unfortunately for all of us, Drake and Rihanna had some kind of falling out earlier this month and it doesn’t look like they’ll get back together… anytime soon. They’ll probably be back together by Christmas though, let’s face it. Still, Drake and Rihanna’s split happened just about a month after Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston’s split. Coincidence?!? Probably. But isn’t it interesting that two super-famous musical stars are single at the same time? Not only that, but isn’t it interesting that Tay-Tay flew back to LA immediately after her Austin, Texas concert just so she could attend Drake’s big 30th birthday bash? New York Mag thinks it’s suspicious! Especially since Tay-Tay came to Drake’s party knowing that she could possibly run into Madame Bad Blood herself, Katy Perry, not to mention “Dear John” Mayer. Taylor still went to the party and she ended up spending a lot of time with Drake.
Drake celebrated his 30th birthday at LA hotspot Delilah on Sunday with starry guests including “Bad Blood” exes Taylor Swift and John Mayer.
“The tension was so thick, you could cut it with a knife,” a spy told us. Mayer’s other ex Katy Perry also attended, and sources told us she and Swift completely avoided each other.
“They were put on opposite sides of the room and didn’t even look at each other. Taylor came through the front door with Karlie Kloss and the Haim sisters while Perry entered through the back with a gang of friends, who were inappropriately dressed for the formal affair. Katy and John chatted, but Taylor avoided both of them,” a spy said.
Guests noshed on dinner from Carbone and sipped Virginia Black whiskey cocktails. We’re told after the dinner, Drake joined Swift in her booth, where they “were intimately flirting, talking closely and laughing. The only person he spent more time with other than his mom was Taylor,” the source said.
Other outlets insist that Drake spent the most time with his mom, although it is notable that Taylor did make such a point of attending his party AND that Drake and Taylor spent so much time together at the party. Which brings me to a series of questions. How does a guy go from Rihanna to Taylor Swift? Are there men who are attracted to both Rihanna and Taylor Swift? How badly does Drake want to be in all of the gossip columns? And finally: is this really happening? TELL ME IT’S NOT HAPPENING. I would not know what to do if Tay + Drizzy really happened.
