rihanna drake take care video stillRumors that Rihanna and Drake are reigniting their relationship have been swirling for a while now, but we've only just gotten a flurry of very telling photos that seem to confirm they are indeed getting serious. Aww! It's about time, guys!

Oh, wait, let's not get too excited just yet. Apparently, there's one thing still standing in the way of them being the music world's newest royal couple ... 

Sources say Drake gave RiRi an ultimatum that she must follow through with before they can really go all in: She must cut ties with ex Chris Brown.

According to the Daily Mail via the Daily Star (so, you know, take this with a grain of salt), Drake is "jealous of Rihanna's ex" (what, does he have a thing for going to jail?) and not a fan of the fact that they are still in contact. The latter I believe -- who IS a fan of RiRi and Chris having anything to do with one another? Whatever they shared was obviously toxic, and he appears to be nothing but trouble -- for her or anyone.

"Drake and Rihanna are just having fun at the moment," reports this supposed "insider." "Neither of them are relationship people, but Drake has made it clear that if things are going to get serious with them, he doesn't want her speaking to Chris."

If there is any truth to this, can't say I blame Drizzy. And if there isn't any truth to it, there SHOULD be. Rihanna has no business keeping in touch with Chris Brown ... especially when she has a shot at a healthy, happy relationship with a genuinely good guy.

How do you feel about Drake giving Rihanna an ultimatum like this? Do you agree that she should cut ties with Chris?
