Musicians Rihanna and Drake are officially exclusive, according to TMZ.

Multiple sources close to the couple told TMZ that Rihanna and Drake are no longer casually hooking up — they have decided to give the relationship a serious shot and are dating seriously.

Rihanna hopes to spend as much time with Drake as she can because he reportedly treats her better than anyone she’s ever been with, TMZ says. The site reported that the pair have been virtually inseparable while Drake has been touring in Europe.

One source told TMZ that Drake seems to be “in the best mood he’s been in a long time.”

FILLING OUT AUTHOR’S HISTORY

Historians know where Solomon Northup was born, where he lived and where he worked. They know whom he married and how many children he had. They know he played the fiddle and spent 12 years enslaved in the South before being freed.

What historians don’t know about the author of “12 Years A Slave” is when and how he died and where he is buried. It’s a lingering mystery in the final chapter of the life of the 19th-century free-born black man whose compelling account of slavery in pre-Civil War Louisiana was made into the Oscar-winning film of the same title.

“That’s sort of a big blank spot in the story, for sure,” said Rachel Seligman, co-author of “Solomon Northup: The Complete Story of the Author of Twelve Years a Slave,” published last year.

This month, “12 Years A Slave” took home the Academy Awards for best picture, best adapted screenplay and best supporting actress. The accolades have sparked new interest in Northup’s story, which was little known until recent years even in the upstate New York communities where he spent most of his life.
