"I'm open to love," Rihanna recently told Cosmopolitan UK. "But guys should have to earn it. Because the minute they get it, they want something else." So, has onetime squeeze Drake been trying to prove his worth?

That's the word from the New York Post, which says the chanteuse, 23, and the Canadian actor-cum-hip-hopper, who were first linked in 2009, are "quietly" seeing each other.

"They are definitely attracted to each other," says a source. "But she's all about her career, and he wants to date around."

Rihanna's rep didn't respond to our request for comment on the casual-dating report.

The wooing rumblings follow a recently released photo that seems to show RiRi cozying up to Drake at a Montreal hot spot on June 12.

A source alleges to TMZ that the duo, who performed a steamy rendition of their hit song "What's My Name" at this year's Grammys, were "all over each other" and "making out" at the club, although Rihanna has denied they're involved.

Still, she made a point of sticking close to her family during a "wild night" of dancing last week at New York nightspot Greenhouse, with a spy telling the Post, "There were no hookups."

Last year, Rihanna admitted to MTV News that she didn't pursue a relationship with Drake because she was still dealing with the fallout from Chris Brown's vicious assault.

"I definitely was attracted to Drake, but I think it is what it is, it was what it was. We didn't want to take it any further," she explained. "It was at a really fragile time in my life, so I just didn't want to get too serious with anything or anyone at that time."
