Many media outlets linked Rihanna to actor Leonardo DiCaprio, but sources claim the singer may actually have a budding romance with a soccer player.

TMZ writes:

The singer hit up a 24-hour Cuban diner called Coppelia around 5AM with Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema — a handsome 27-year-old who also plays on the French national team.

The two looked pretty cozy inside the eatery — but left separately.

But here’s the deal … Rihanna is a HUGE soccer fan and first reached out to Benzema during the 2014 World Cup. They exchanged tweets in which she told him she “felt his pain” — he replied, thanking her for the support.


No word yet on if Rihanna is actually dating Benzema, and it’s possible they are just friends.


    1. Or maybe it’s just not that serious for Rihanna? I mean she can get an invitation to the White House on her own accord, while Ciara couldn’t get in without Russell Wilson. LOL.
