Rihanna has rekindled her relationship with ex-boyfriend Negus Sealy.

The Bajan beauty, who was recently romantically linked to Drake, was spotted enjoying some "hot and heavy" dancing with her former flame - who she dated in 2006 before shooting to fame as a singer - at the Kadooment Day festival in her home nation of Barbados.

A friend said: "Negus has hardly left her side. He was her first true love. The ladies here all love him - they call him the Love God.

"They've hooked up in the past when she's been back in Barbados but now things have progressed into a proper relationship again."

A fellow onlooker added to The Sun newspaper: "They were all over each other and their dancing got very hot and heavy."

Negus - who provided Rihanna with a shoulder to cry on when she split with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown after he assaulted her in 2009 - has been spending time at the 'California King Bed' hitmaker's villa on the Sandy Lane estate.

The 23-year-old singer is also still "good friends" with ex-boyfriend Matt Kemp - who she split with last December following an 11-month romance - who recently explained the pair still get on well.

He said: "She's a good friend of mine. We're good.

"There's no bad blood between us. We've all got busy lives and we're working on our careers and concentrating on our careers. Like I said, I wish her all the best of luck and she wishes me all the best of luck."
