Drake was always the odd man out in the love triangle with Chris Brown and Rihanna. He may have the last laugh, though, as he is reportedly wanting to get back together with RiRi.

Drizzy and RiRi were reportedly an item in 2010 and 2011, and she was allegedly the bone of contention between Drizzy and Breezy during their epic NYC bottle battle royale.

A source told Look (quotes via 4Music) that Breezy forbade Ri from talking to Drake when they got back together. Now that they've split -- again! -- she is reopening those formerly closed lines of communication.

The insider said, "She really missed him in that time - yes, they went out years before but he was also a good friend to her. So calling him was one of the first things she did when she realized she was over Chris."

Drizzy's peeps say that he saw the split between ChRihanna coming from a mile away.

"[Drake's been] waiting patiently on the sidelines. Just over a month ago, Drake gave Rihanna an ultimatum. He told her he needed to move on if she wasn't going to commit," a source said.

That source further said, "His love life was paused when Chris and Rihanna reunited, and Drake claims it caused him stress headaches, writer's block and anxiety. He was obviously sick of it, but Rihanna wasn't ready for him. Now Chris and Rihanna are done for good, Drake might finally get his chance."

The two are said to be communicating more, with RiRi thinking she made a mistake when she renewed her relationship with Brown. Although we don't think Ri takes kindly to ultimatums...

So. Much. Drama.

For some reason, we don't think Drizzy wants Breezy's sloppy seconds. Plus, you can't make a portmanteau name out of Drake and Rihanna. "Drihanna" doesn't have quite a ring to it.
