Jennifer Lopez confirms relationship with new boyfriend Drake in the cutest way over New Year

They posted matching loved-up photos as they shared a sweet moment over Christmas, but people were still unsure if Jennifer Lopez and Drake were the real deal, now it looks as though the singer has confirmed it in a discreet way.

On Saturday, Jen stayed in Las Vegas to support her beau at his New Year’s Eve show, and was later pictured wearing his necklace.

The stunning 47-year-old enjoyed herself in a VIP area of the Hakkasan nightclub as the Take Care rapper hit the stage, but now new pictures have emerged from the night on social media, and eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that Jlo was wearing a new item.

Drake, who has been pictured wearing the same necklace in recent photos, wasn’t with the star in the snaps, but she proudly wore the gold chain.

And while they rang in the new year together, Jlo and Drizzy were later seen hitting the MGM Grand tables for a little flutter.

The pair were spotted at the high roller table in the same hotel where Drake had performed. Jen is said to have stayed on the table for half an hour. Her ex Ben Affleck is known for his love of gambling. Maybe she picked up some tips?

It comes as friends of the couple have said that the pair are 100per cent legit.

The duo turned the music industry upside down with after announcing their romance with a sizzling selfie – but certain fans thought all might not be as it seems.

There was speculation that it’s all a publicity stunt for an upcoming collaboration or reality show. Certain fans even theorised Drake targeted Jlo to get back at her ex (and his rival P Diddy).

E! News said the couple are “100 percent legit, and not a professional ploy to promote any type of business like many are assuming.”

They also are convinced that Jen will get back together with her ex-boyfriend Casper Smart.

“I think she and Casper will get back together,” they claimed.

“He’s a great guy and she’s knows it. They just need a break right now.”

But another source told the website that they will never get back together.

Mum-of-two J-Lo, clad in a skin tight white dress, passionately kisses her new beau who can’t help but grinning like a cat who got the queen.

The pair were such a hot item they were crowned prom king and queen at the bash – which thrilled J-Lo, who can be seen squealing with delight at her pink sash.

It is believed to be their first public appearance together since they went public with their romance – leaving Drake’s ex Rihanna furious with his new love.

Their performance on the empty dance floor impressed onlookers. One thrilled eye-witness simply said: “Couple goals.”

Others, weren’t so sure.

“This is all part of the music video their filming, right?? I refuse to believe otherwise,” said one cynic. Another added: “Whoever thought up these two deserves an Oscar.”

It comes as Radio star Funkmaster Flex has accused Drake of using Jennifer Lopez to get back at his rival P Diddy.

The Take Care rapper has a long-standing feud with JLo’s ex, hip-hop mogul Diddy, and recently appeared to confirm his relationship status with her.

Now, radio personality Funkmaster Flex, 48, has seemingly called out Drake, 30, over the new romance.

As he claimed that the romance could be an act of ‘revenge’, he also noted that their loved-up picture was posted on the anniversary of a New York shooting that saw Diddy and JLo caught up in back on December 27 1999.

Both JLo and Diddy were arrested with Diddy’s then-protege Shyne later convicted and sentenced to 10 years.

The couple split shortly after the shocking incident.

“JLo? That’s the get back for a punch in the face? Took me all day to figure this out!” he tweeted.

“Doggy saved the pic for the anniversary and everything!!! Haaaa! Wow! Sensitive new n**** fail!” he also added.

Drake and Diddy famously brawled at a Las Vegas club in 2014, and it seems like the rivalry is still fresh.

While both stars have remained quiet on the rumours surrounding their relationship, the pair did both share the loved-up photo on their Instagram pages.

Meanwhile a source has told HollywoodLife.com that Diddy isn’t happy about JLo’s new man, allegedly claiming he’s a “downgrade” for the mother-of-two.

Jennifer Lopez fell for Drake because he ‘treats her with respect’.

The Love Don’t Cost a Thing star and the Canadian rapper appeared to confirm their relationship status as they both shared the same loved-up photo.

But now a source has claimed that the 47-year-old is “smitten” with Drake.

“Jen loves the attention and she seems very happy to be spending time with him,” they told E! News.

An insider claims that Jen is excited about the coming year and has spent a lot of time with the Take Care star, with the 30-year-old even visiting her family home that she shares with her twins Max and Emme.

“Jen is looking forward with excitement to the new year. She keeps hanging out with Drake, and he has visited her house,”the insider said.

“She has nothing but nice things to say about Drake.”

There have been plenty of rumours that Jennifer Lopez and Drake are dating – and it looks like they could have just confirmed it.

JLo, 47, and Drake, 30, have both shared a snap of them looking VERY loved up.

In the cute picture, the musicians are snuggled together on the sofa looking very much like a couple.

She has her eyes shut and looks very comfortable snuggled up to the Hotline Bling hitmaker.

But it looks like the budding romance may have upset Drake’s ex Rihanna.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that Bajan pop beauty Rihanna, 28, had stopped following J-Lo on Instagram over the weekend.

The pair have been friendly acquaintances for years, which led many fans to ask why the singer all of a sudden chose to stop seeing her snaps.

But it didn’t take long for many of them to put two and two together.

JLo and Rihanna’s on-off love Drake recently sparked dating rumours after he was spotted at a number of the star’s Las Vegas shows and also on what appeared to be a date at a swanky restaurant in West Hollywood.

Drake and Rihanna ended their on-off romance in October, while Jennifer – who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony – called off her relationship with her 29-year-old backing dancer, Casper Smart earlier this year, after four years together.

Mirror Celeb has contacted JLo and Drake’s representatives for comment.
