During the last few weeks, the media have seemingly watched a relationship bloom between Jennifer Lopez and Drake. The two have not been shy about posting photos together online, but the 47-year-old musician has finally gone on record about their status.

Jennifer Lopez had a brief interview with Entertainment Tonight to confirm that she and Drake are working on a collaboration together. “He just asked me to do a song with him and that’s what we’ve been doing,” she said. “We’ll see if it's on his next album.” But when it came to her personal relationship with the 30-year-old rapper, the mother-of-two was uncharacteristically quiet.

Her silence on the issue has not deterred rumours that the two are seeing each other. A source of E! News confirmed that the two recently enjoyed an intimate date on the rooftop terrace of the Catch LA restaurant in West Hollywood. The two arrived separately but enjoyed themselves and were nice to the staff.

The source went on to explain that neither musician is currently seeing anyone else. “Drake is in all the way,” they said. “J.Lo is pedaling slower but still really enjoys his fun and loving company.”

The source went on to claim that Drake has already met Jennifer’s 8-year-old twins, Emme and Max. The “Hotline Bling” singer is reportedly not fazed by the fact that she already has children with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. “He loves kids and is sweet with them,” the source said.

If either Jennifer or Drake go on record about their romantic relationship, this will be the first girl since Rihanna that he has ever taken public. He and Rihanna had a whirlwind romance last year that the entire music fanbase watched unfold. Nevertheless, they decided to part ways because of conflicting schedules and the 30-year-old has seemingly found new love in Jennifer.
