Drake is ''getting his heart broken'' by Rihanna.

The 29-year-old rapper - who has collaborated with the Barbados-born beauty on their recent hit 'Work' and on their 2010 single 'What's My Name' - has admitted the 28-year-old is toying with his heart strings.

Speaking to the audience during Rihanna's concert in Manchester held at the Emirates Old Trafford stadium on Wednesday (29.06.16), which saw the brunette beauty gyrate on Drake's crotch, he 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 musicians - who sparked rumours they were an item in 2009, although they never confirmed the allegations - have been seen getting close to one another over the past few years, according to E! News.

However, the pair - who regularly make surprise appearances at each other's gigs - have recently been seen getting cosy again and are allegedly hooking up on a casual basis.

Speaking about Puma's creative director's love life, a source said: ''[They] aren't seriously dating.

''It's just for fun right now.

Another insider added: ''They hooked up that night they went to 'Nice Guy' together and stayed until 5:30 a.m.''

Although the 'One Dance' hitmaker has teased Rihanna is a tease, he has admitted the duo make a great musical pairing because they share a ''genuine energy''.

Speaking previously, he said: ''It wouldn't be a record without Rihanna, would it?

''We do well as a team.

''We're not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music and energy we have is genuine. We have a genuine energy.''
