The pair were spotted kissing backstage at his Newcastle gig this week, where Rita was the warm-up act.
Rita’s new single R.I.P is written by Canadian hip-hop star Drake – and they have known each other for ages.
A source says: “Rita and Drake have been good friends for a while now but things seemed more serious this week. They were all over each other backstage at the gig on Monday and weren’t trying to hide it.”
Rita previously dated Rob Kardashian, the brother of socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
