Rapper Drake is devastated after his pop star girlfriend Rihanna dumped him.
However, despite his upset, it is claimed he wouldn’t hesitate to get back with her if he was given a chance, reports RadarOnline.
Discussing the power the Bajhan beauty has over him, a source told the website: ‘All she needs to do is snap her fingers and he’ll go running back to her.’

Destroyed: Drake is reportedly finding his break up with Rihanna very difficult
Under her spell: It’s thought if Rihanna wanted to take him back, he would jump at the chance
It has been reported that Drake believes the 26-year-old is ‘pushing him away due to her own self-esteem issues’.
The source continued: ‘All of Drake’s crew wish he’d forget about her and move on but he’s hooked — no matter how upset, hurt and angry he is with her right now.’
RiRi and the 27-year-old Canadian singer have had a roller-coaster ride of a relationship dating back to 2009.
Short-lived: The couple reunited for a short time this year and were barely apart
They reunited in Paris in February when RiRi attended Drake’s concert in Paris, and for a period of time they seemed inseparable again.
However in mid-May it was reported that they had separated once again and when the Stay singer threw a post-Met Gala bash earlier this month, Drake didn’t attend.
On Sunday evening Rihanna was spotted looking stony-faced as she watched a very sexily dressed Nicki Minaj jump into Drake’s arms as they performed at the Super Jam festival in New Jersey.

Drake seemed more than happy to catch Nicki and he could be seen gripping her waist with one arm while she wrapped her arms around him.
Speaking previously about their relationship, Drake told MTV: ‘Me and Nicki have a really playful relationship. When I was on tour … I saw Nicki for the first time and, like, literally fell in love.’
He added: ‘I’ve always really had a crush on her, always really loved her, and she’s always just looked at me as, like, her little brother.’

Nicki denied it in a subsequent interview with MTV saying: ‘Drake does not have a crush on me. Drake knows how to get you guys’ attention.’
However she recently told Vice magazine when asked about her ideal man: ‘One day I will run away with Drake and get married, but right now it’s just a fantasy.’
Rihanna and Drake first started dating in 2009 shortly after Rihanna was the victim of a domestic violence assault involving her former boyfriend Chris Brown.

Drake was featured on Rihanna’s hit song What’s My Name? from her fifth studio album Loud and she was featured on the emotional singer’s single Take Care from his album of the same name.
They performed together at the 2011 NBA All-Star Game and at the 2011 Grammy Awards that were both held in Los Angeles.
A spokesperson for Drake has been contacted for comment.
