Aubrey “Drake” Graham has been identified as the ‘mystery man’ Rihanna was spotted kissing Sunday night at a New York City nightclub.
Rihanna, 21, hit a New York nightclub with six friends on May 17 and was seen kissing one of the men in the party. The two were seen getting cozy again on Monday night at Big Apple’s Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge bowling alley.
“She was drinking whiskey and apple juice and making out with him all night,” a source tells PageSix. “They were really cute together.”
Aubrey Graham, 22, is a former child actor-turned-rapper. He began his acting career in 2001, playing the role of Jimmy Brooks, the physically disabled character on the Canadian teen drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”
As a rapper, he performs under the name Drake, and is often billed as the new version of The Fresh Prince. His first single “Best I Ever Had” (see below) is currently number 25 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.
Rihanna split from Chris Brown earlier this year following a well-publicised fight in February, which reportedly left her battered and bruised and Brown facing criminal charges.
