One of the stories that currently has the rumor mills working overtime is that of a possible romance between Taylor Swift and Drake. The rumors about the two singers seeing each other peaked after Drake on Friday, November 4 shared an Instagram pic of he and Swift.
The picture, which according to TMZ was taken more than a week ago at Drake’s birthday party, shows the pair standing with their back to the camera in a rather intimate pause.
Drake, 30, captioned the Instagram pic ‘Is that velvet?’ These words alongside the pic have left many wondering what is really going on between the pair. Fans have been expressing their concerns all over social media following Drake’s post. One Twitter user in particular had this to say,
“Drake posted a picture with Taylor Swift and I have never been so stressed out!!! What IS this?”
Neither the Wildest Dreams singer or her rumored new flame has come forward to deny or confirm the speculations. People are however trying to put two and two together through the words the Canadian singer told Extra! in 2010. The One Dance hitmaker admitted at the TV show that he always finds it fun to see Taylor Swift in person and that he liked her whole being and was excited about her career. Drake had even purchased a Taylor Swift T-shirt to wear back then.
Drake’s birthday party
Drake’s birthday party took place at LA’s Delilah on October 23. It was a posh and starstudded event that also saw Swift’s former friend turned foe in attendance.
According to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life, Taylor and Drake were apparently cozying up with each other at the birthday pash. They weren’t kissing passe or doing anything out of place but they reportedly couldn’t keep their hands off each other.
If the speculations about a possible love connection are indeed true then they have both found love soon after facing breakups. Both of them recently came off relationships. The 26 year old Swift had been dating actor Tom Hiddlestone whereas Drake had been going out with Rihanna.
Meanwhile, Rihanna is said to have been infuriated by her ex’s action of sharing a picture of he and Swift on Instagram. It is reported that she asked musician and actor to clear his Instagram page of her pictures immediately after that. A source told E! News that the pair are still to a large extent in each other’s lives even though they have split.
Taylor Swift on her part is also being linked with a possible reunion with Hiddlestone even as she cozies up with Drake. There were also rumors that she might be pregnant but these have since been refuted.
A Swift and Drake collabo
The entertainment scene could be poised to receive a collabo between Swift and Drake. The pair are reportedly working on a single together. The two are also yet to comment on this.
