Now, photos from his Summer Sixteen tour stop in New Orleans on September 2 show that Drake has a twin shark permanently plastered to his forearm, so, yeah: If that isn’t a hyper-specific declaration of lasting love, we don’t know what is.
This has been a huge week for the pop star and rapper: They started it at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, where Drake presented RiRi with this year’s Video Vanguard award and shared that he’d been in love with her for years. Some NYC hangs happened. Some appointments with some tattoo artists went down. Some smooches were exchanged onstage in Miami. And now, not seven days after Drake got a serious case of the feelings before the VMA audience and viewers at home, they’re stamped with the 2D rendering of a stuffed animal Drake got for RiRi on a date at Toronto’s Ripley’s Aquarium. (Peep the photo above: You’ll find the shark just underneath the hands clasped in prayer on his outstretched right arm.)
That’s one hell of a souvenir for this epic seven-day stretch — well, that and the giant billboard Drake put up in Los Angeles to celebrate Rihanna’s VMA achievements. Should we all be so lucky as to find someone who’s into expressing their affection in the most unexpected ways possible, stuffed animals and all.
Police search followed woman’s accusation Tuesday that singer pointed gun at her while at his house.
Police did not find guns or drugs during a search of singer Chris Brown’s mansion before his arrest on allegations he threatened a model at gunpoint, his lawyer said Friday.
Mark Geragos said he was present during the search and police did not find evidence to corroborate the accuser’s story, including a specific piece of jewelry that she said triggered the incident.
Baylee Curran told reporters that Brown pointed a gun at her face after he and another man became angry with her when she admired the man’s diamond necklace.
Brown was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. He was released on $250,000 U.S. bail.
Geragos said the accuser’s story was fabricated.
“This woman got irate when she was asked to leave because she was acting in an erratic manner,” Geragos said.
Capt. Andy Neiman said the Los Angeles Police Department is working with prosecutors to review the evidence and not commenting on the case.
The Grammy-winning Brown has had legal trouble and problems acquiring international visas since his felony conviction in the 2009 assault of then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed probation in that case last year.
Brown has also faced accusations that were proven to be false, Geragos said. He has also had stalkers and several break-ins, including one by a woman who moved into his house while he was away.
