Drake and Rihanna are back together.

Although the rapper recently had a brief fling with model Hailey Baldwin, he and Rihanna have reportedly rekindled their on/off romance.

A source told PEOPLE: "Hailey was a fling, but Drake has always wanted to make things work with Rihanna. They are still dating. Things get more serious when they're in the same place."

Drake, 29, and Rihanna, 28, were first linked in 2009 and when he joined her on stage during her Manchester concert last week, he claimed she has been responsible for breaking his heart.

Drake said: "Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I've ever seen. She goes by the name of Rihanna ... I'm getting my heart broken."

The pair have since been spotted partying together in London.

It was previously claimed that Drake has always been in love with Rihanna but the 'Work' hitmaker was hesitant to settle down.

A source said: "He still loves her and never stopped. Rihanna is the one that's been not wanting to settle down in the past. They are having fun spending time with each other."

And Drake has called Rihanna his "ultimate fantasy" in the past.

He said: "She's the ultimate fantasy. I mean, I think about it. Like, 'Man, that would be good.' We have fun together, she's cool and shit. But we're just friends. That's my dog for life."
