Jennifer Lopez ‘loves the attention’ she’s getting from this Drake relationship

FFN_MUG_Lopez_Jennifer_122816_52267710

Here are some photos of Jennifer Lopez out and about on Wednesday in Beverly Hills. She was shopping with some girlfriends (sidenote: she looks really busty in these pics, right? Is it just a great bra?). The shopping excursion came just hours after Jennifer and Drake coordinated their Instagram “confirmations” that they are in fact together… or something. Both Jennifer and Drake dropped the same Instagram photo of themselves cuddled up together. The IG drop came just a few hours after Rihanna unfollowed Jennifer on Instagram too, so if we’re going by Rihanna’s actions, J.Lo and Drake are totally together (and RiRi is pissed about it). So what now? Now we get a source explaining how Jen and Drake are together but maybe not and who knows?

Jennifer Lopez and Drake continued to fuel romance rumors Wednesday morning when they simultaneously posted the same cuddly photo on their Instagram accounts, and now a source tells PEOPLE things are heating up.

“Jen is looking forward with excitement to the new year. She keeps hanging out with Drake, and he has visited her house,” says a Lopez source. “She has nothing but nice things to say about Drake.”

Last week, an insider told PEOPLE the duo were just friends and were working on music together, but also spending plenty of time together.

But the Lopez source says while they “do work on music together,” the pair also “clearly enjoy each other on another level, too.”

“Jen loves the attention and she seems very happy to be spending time with him,” says the Lopez source. “Drake is very charming. He treats Jen with lots of respect. She seems very smitten.”

“Jen loves the attention” is perhaps the understatement of Jennifer Lopez’s life. Of course she loves that everyone is paying attention to her new love affair. I also believe that Drake loves the attention too, especially if it means that Rihanna is paying attention. As I keep saying, I’m all for this couple – I think they suit each other publicly and privately. As in, publicly they’re both willing to play the game and that’s always fun. Privately, she loves being a cougar and having some boy-toy around who worships her and he loves having a high-profile official girlfriend.

    They are a perfect match, they love love, they want the attention, they both wanna get back at Rihanna and Casper Smart.

  2. Embee says:

    I’m here for it. Let the games begin!

  3. QQ says:

    I love that first Pic outfit… that’s really all I’ve got, I don’t particularly ship them though it’s 100% believable they are going at it… I mean sure.. Why Not

    • mia girl says:

      I love the outfit too!

      As far as this thing between JLo and Drake I’m not believing. I’m thinking it’s a ochestrated PR distraction with many benefits with an imparticularly convenient one for JLo:. Marc Anthony filed for divorced yesterday… rather quietly given all the attention on this. Hmmmm.
      If not overshadowed by the Drake/JLo share, I imagine it would be getting more play (true or not) that she’s a big reason for that divorce.

    • Bridget says:

      That first outfit is fantastic.

      As for the rest… JLo loves her some public declarations of adoration. Drake is actually her speed in a lot of regards. She’s not normally one to play it close to the vest nor is she one to fake just for publicity but it is possible. I would totally believe that these two are together.

    • Eleonor says:

      Same here: I love the outfit !

  4. Nemera34 says:

    I can believe she is enjoying the attention. American Idol is GONE. So that weekly look at me, watch me perform, and so on and so on is over. She and Smart broke up. I don’t think anyone was particularly interested in that anymore either. So now everyone (well some people) are talking about her and Drake. And really is it that interesting either. Drake is very talented; but he is not the most interesting person. Which may be what JLo is looking for. She will shine more in this duo than not.

    Jennifer is closing in on 50 years old. I read an x rated comment yesterday what he wouldn’t have to do since she’s approaching menopause. Ha! Guess you had to be there because it was funny. I do hope I can pull off her look when I’m her age. Money doesn’t hurt, but the woman has good genes. One snap of the fingers though and he would run to Rihanna. He really has to get over her at some point!!

    • detritus says:

      Sigh. If you had just cut out the bit about laughing at how old Jlo is, I would have consigned, but nope, gotta laugh at how old ladies be gross and non sexy. On a post about Jlo. Who is sex on wheels.

      • Nancy says:

        No need to sigh. I wasn’t making fun of her age, but the meme you had to see to understand, is now a moot point. I said I only wish I could look as well as she does when I’m her age. I abuse a lot of isms, but not age.

    • naomipaige says:

      You’re right. The whole thing is pretty pathetic. Then, again, I wouldn’t expect any more from her. In my eyes, she’s beyond pathetic. Time to grow up chica!!

  6. Locke Lamora says:

    I know celebrities tend to mentally get stuck at the age they became famous, but did all 3 of them get famous aged 13? Posting maybe confirmation on instagram? Unfollowing your maybe ex’ maybe new squeezze? You should stop doing that when you graduate middle school.

  7. als says:

    Right, because people that are just starting new and hot relationships lock themselves in the house and keep it a secret forever.
    People brag about their partners all the time and they enjoy the attentìon of being in a relationship, especially when the relationship is with JLo or Drake.
    The hotter the partner, the more attention you get. It’s not just celebrities that love it, most people love it.

    Considering the stigma that is put on being single, people that are in relationships, old or new, really do get a lot of positive attention. And for doing nothing at all if you think about it.

  8. Jacqu says:

    It was said in Lainey gossip that rihanna unfollowed before the pic was posted. Which one is it?

  9. Eva says:

    Why does it matter? She probably heard about them hooking up well before they went public.

  10. TrueStory says:

    Drake and Rih got matching tattoos like….3 months ago ….and even chose drake to present her MTV vangauard award to her on a massively public stage….so I get why she would unfollow…

    I think things are still fresh and despite all of this drake is crazy about rih narrative….I think he’s actually been the one blowing hot and cold for years

    I doubt this thing with jlo will last very long …

  11. OTHER RENEE says:

    I don’t believe there’s anything romantic going on between them at all. This is the thirstiest woman of them all. First she busts up her ex husband’s marriage and now she’s anxious for everyone to believe this youngish stud would prefer her to Riri. There’s probably a musical collaboration around the corner and that’s all.

    • CatFoodJunkie says:

      No woman can “bust up” a marriage – good
      Marriage or bad. Takes two to tango and any man can say “no.”

    • CynicalCeleste says:

      No person is thirstier than Drake.

    • naomipaige says:

      I have no doubt she had her hands in the ending of his marriage. He seems like a very weak person. She’ll definitely be wearing the pants in that relationship. Even a visually impaired person could see that Drake and her so called ‘relationship’ was as fake as her butt!!!!

  12. laur says:

    For some bizarre reason I love the idea of this relationship!! I’ll see myself out…

    • Gatita says:

      It’s what gossip should be: silly, juicy and completely inconsequential. No domestic violence, no kids involved.

  13. stinky says:

    those shoes are glowing/reflecting on the sidewalk!

  14. Skins says:

    I think Dralo is going to give us some good stuff in the next month or so. This is good work by J-Lo, she knows this is going to raise her profile by a ton

  15. Mar says:

    These 2 are both super corny

  16. GigiC says:

    I want that cardigan in the first pic! And that bag, is that a Birkin? Idk but I’m feeling that color.

    Other than that, Drake is annoying. I think it’s just me, but I never bought the whole ‘just a nice boy looking for true love’ narrative. He’s always seemed calculated and creepy to me.

  17. Libra girl says:

    I don’t believe it. It’s allll for attention. No way. He is, was and always will be in love with Rihanna.

    • naomipaige says:

      She’s all about the attention. In my opinion, that’s what her whole ‘career’ is based on! Nothing more!

  18. Happymama says:

    I love jlo gossip. Bring it on!

  19. aiylaane says:

    I love her outfit in the first picture. No, I don’t think she got bolt-ons. I am going through peri-menopause and I had to change out all my bras for more padding. Now, I look like I have bolt-ons. The best thing about going through peri-menopause I actually have her curves now, lol. Celebrate. I love her. I love the Drake thing too. He’s a player but seems sweet. I hope she has fun. I hope with her history she doesn’t get too attached. I keep thinking she’s going to marry him in six months. Don’t do it girl. I admit I would love the attention too. It is fun at any age. I bet it especially more fun in your late 40′s. I had a mechanic check me out the other day. I was smiling all day. I am happily married girl in my mid-40′s. :)

  20. Sera says:

    She I just trying to keep the tabloids away from her being responsible for Marc Anthony’s divorce. She showed no respect for his wife. She needed a cover. Drake wants Rihanna to be jealous. Two users.

  21. Emma corcoran says:

    This relationship is the only part of 2016 that has made any sense to me.

  22. naomipaige says:

    Wow! Even now, she’s still thirsty!! Grow up already!

  23. MARCIE F says:

    Anyone else notice she’s wearing a safety pin on her lapel?! Love this…
