No, Drake and Rihanna are not dating, Dennis Graham said.

People have been speculating about Drake and Rihanna’s relationship status for a while, but the discussion was reignited after Drake declared his love for Rihanna at the VMAs and kissed her on the cheek.

Graham, Drake’s dad, dismissed the rumors in a TMZ video by saying, “They’re friends. They’ve been friends for years.”

The questioner persisted, “How do you feel about your son finally settling down?”

“I don’t know about settling down,” Graham said. “No, they’re friends.”

Vogue marks the beginning their debated relationship as May 2009, when the two went bowling in New York City soon after Rihanna broke up with Chris Brown. And this summer, Drake and Rihanna got matching shark tattoos after they reportedly had a midnight date at a Toronto aquarium.
