Rihanna and Drake Spend a Wholesome Night and $17,000 at a Strip Club

Rihanna and Drake went to a strip club in Houston, where they spent over $17,000. Are they back together? No one knows. The more important question: did Rihanna encourage anyone's singing dreams whilst at da club? The answer to that is yes.

The pair apparently "sat very close together" and were "dressed alike" (PLEASE let them both have been in matching floral bucket hats). One dancer named Jhoni Blaze says that Rihanna encouraged her to "dream big," to pursue her singing career and to not be afraid of putting herself out there. Drake didn't nurture anyone's career hopes because he was too busy tossing money around (is that fun? I'm genuinely curious).

Blaze says that the pair neither smoked nor drank much — just wore their bucket hats (I hope) and threw over $17,000 at people over the course of a few hours. Night in at the strip club! [E!, images via Instagram]

It is rumored that the private school that Gwynnie's children attend has banned Vespas from school pick-up and drop-off because she's such a reckless rider. Is that possible? How fast can Vespas even go? GOOP's people deny it. [Radar]
