The source says the two started texting each other recently and then started talking daily.

“Drake was the one who first initiated a conversation via a text message,” the source said.

“Ri (Rihanna) was happy to talk to him because she was hurting after splitting with that DB Chris. She told him she was sorry for hurting him and that she chose the wrong guy,” the source told us.

“Drake told her he will always have a shoulder for her to lean on and that he is happy as long as she is okay,” the source revealed.

Rihanna is currently touring Europe with her hugely successful Diamonds World Tour.

After her tour ends later this summer you can bet to see her and Drake in the club.
