Despite the ongoing gossip, rapper Meek Mill continues to deny that any romance went down between him and pop princess Rihanna. In the new issue of Vibe, in which Meek and his Maybach Music Group cohorts share the cover, Meek opens up about his feelings for Rihanna. “I got a girl at home, so it ain’t nothing I can entertain or say I’m involved in when I’m not,”‘ says Meek about his girlfriend in Philadelphia. He does add, “Yeah, Rihanna is my type, [but] pretty chicks are my type.”’
Following the bottle-throwing incident at club W.i.P in NYC this summer, many speculated that those in the alleged mix–Meek Mill, Chris Brown and Drake–had issues with one another due to each having romantic ties with Rihanna.
In the weeks before the club brawl, Meek, who had hung out with Rihanna in NYC (they hit the strip club for his birthday and she shared pics via Instagram) threw some jabs on Twitter that drew eyes to their relationship. “U took me off ya song cause she let me watch da throne! #dreamsandnightmares,” he wrote, alluding that Chris Brown had removed him from his upcoming LP after a fling with Rihanna. Brown’s response? “She’s a dream chaser! There are alot of dreamers so she’ll be running forever!” (a play on Meek’s mixtape name).
Chris and Meek have since put aside any differences but the pesky Rihanna rumors persist.
