Although he and Rihanna have been spotted around town smooching Drake is dispelling rumors that he and the 21-year old “Disturbia” singer are dating.  “We’re just good friends,” the Toronto-based rapper (real name: Aubrey Drake Graham), 22, tells ET Canada “She’s a great person, and I am happy to have her in my life. She gives me a lot of great advice, and she is very talented.”  Best known for his role on the teen series Degrassi: The Next Generation, Drake said recently that he is writing songs for Rihanna. Asked if they would ever do a duet, he replied with a chuckle, “Maybe someday.”  While Drake is due to tour this summer with Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy and Young Jeezy, Rihanna is expected in a Los Angeles court Monday for a preliminary hearing in the Chris Brown assault case
