After just over two months of whirlwind romancing, rap megastar Drake and singer Jennifer Lopez are reportedly taking “a breather” from their relationship because of their hectic work schedules.

The rumoured couple had been spotted together at New Year’s Eve and in mid-January, with Drake at one point said to have bought a $100,000 necklace for J-Lo, who is 17 years his senior.

However, last weekend Lopez posted a cryptic message via Instagram, a quotation normally associated with break-ups that read: “Timing is everything. If it's meant to happen, it will, and for the right reasons.” Many took this to mean that things had either fizzled out or they were taking a break.

On Thursday, an insider told E! News that the two have “taken some time apart, not because they don't want to be with each other, just because their schedules started getting insane.”

“J-Lo and Drake are still talking, so people should know they are not in any means angry or that some incident happened. It mainly had to do with timing,” the source added. “They have just cooled things off a bit and it's not as fast as it was in the beginning. They very well may go to dinner tomorrow or in a month. They are in each other’s lives, just doing their own thing now.”

Another source speaking separately to Entertainment Tonight told much the same story. “She’s a mom with an insanely busy career. He's touring in Europe. Who knows what will happen in the future when they’re more able to be in the same place.”

Drake is in the middle of his Boy Meets World tour of the UK and Europe until the end of March, touring his last album Views and his much-anticipated upcoming project More Life.

Lopez recently resumed her ‘All I Have’ concert residency at the AXIS auditorium at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, showing off clips and pictures from the shows on Instagram. The pair have been dating ever since Drake was spotted catching one of the spectacular shows back in November last year.

However, the two of them are due back in Los Angeles when the 2017 Grammys takes place on Sunday night (February 12th).
