Rihanna and Drake have fuelled rumours that they might be on the verge of getting back together, as the former lovebirds were spotted partying late into the night together in London for a second night in a row this week.

28 year old Rihanna is currently in Britain on tour, in support of her latest album Anti, and the Canadian rapper, whom she dated briefly in 2009, has joined her on-stage in a number of performances, most recently in Manchester on Wednesday night.

They were spotted leaving Tramps nightclub together at 4:30am on Thursday morning, just 24 hours after they put on an even later stand at 5:30am for Nicole Scherzinger’s 38th birthday in the same club - with a live date in Manchester squeezed in between.

The rumours of a reconciliation started last month in early May, when the pair put on a particularly steamy performance of their recent collaboration ‘Work’ at the Forum in Los Angeles. Viewers of this year’s BRIT Awards will remember them dancing intimately performing the same song earlier this year.

A source told People magazine that RiRi and Drizzy had “secretly been dating for months”, and that backstage they were being “very affectionate” to each other.

Earlier this year, Drake explained to Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe that he and his ex still had musical chemistry together. “We're not forcing some story on people,” he insisted. “A lot of the music and energy we have is genuine. We have a genuine energy.”

Meanwhile, back in Britain, Rihanna was considerate to her fans who waited for hours in the rain for her open-air gig at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, ordering 20 pizzas to be sent to them as they queued. However, residents nearby complained about the loud noise from the gig.
