As previously reported, the duo first sparked romance rumors when Drake, 30, was seen attending two of the “Ain’t Your Mama” singer’s Las Vegas shows in one week. Days later, the Canadian rapper shut down West Hollywood hotspot Delilah and invited Lopez, 47, to an intimate shindig he was throwing for only a handful of friends. They were spotted leaving the private party together that night.

Last week, the couple shared a photo of them cuddling before attending a winter wonderland-themed formal together. According to a source, Drake threw the bash after learning that Lopez had never attended prom.

“He wanted her to have that experience,” the insider says. “She was his childhood crush!”

The source adds, “They’re both single, attractive and have a lot in common, so it’s natural. They really like each other.”
