Jennifer Lopez may just be “having fun” in her new kinda-relationship with Drake, but it looks like the rapper is completely smitten with his lady, who also happened to be his childhood crush.
A source tells E! News exclusively that Drake is “completely falling for J.Lo. He has always had a crush on her growing up, so the fact that this is all coming to life is pretty cool for him. He really likes her though.”
The insider adds, “They laugh and get along perfectly. The age gap is not an issue for him, because he digs an older woman. J.Lo has always been into younger men, so it’s a good combo.”
As for the seriousness of their relationship, the source shares that the pair are “taking things as slow as they could, but a relationship may be in the works between them,” and explains, “He treats her like a queen and loves her work ethic and family values. This is the first girl besides Rihanna in a while that he is really into. Drake is looking for a relationship and something solid.”
Drizzy and Jenny from the block continue to make waves as one of Hollywood’s hottest new couples.
The pair, who have been spotted out and about together on numerous occasions, were most recently seen on New Year’s Eve, when J.Lo attended Drake’s show at the Hakkasan Las Vegas nightclub. Lopez had recently canceled her own New Year’s Eve show at Miami’s E11even nightclub.
Drake did not give his girl a public shout-out during his 40-minute set, but did perform some of his tracks off of Views, such as “Energy,” “Hotline Bling” and “Fake Love.” He also performed his and RiRi’s duet “Work” before cutting the song short and saying, “Alright, that was the vibe for 2016…you’ve got to give it up to my new music.”
Lopez and Drake have not commented on the status of their relationship. Another source had told E! News exclusively recently that J.Lo is enjoying her time with Drizzy, but isn’t considering him as a potential serious boyfriend, adding, “she’s having fun.”
