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