Rihanna’s love life (as well as her grudge matches with her exes, Chris Brown and Drake), have been plastered all over the headlines as of late. But, now it seems that Rihanna may have finally been hit by Cupid’s arrow as reports claim she’s been getting cozy with Knicks star J.R. Smith.
According to In Touch Weekly, multiple sources claim that the two were spotted together on May 6 at Club Veranda in NYC looking quite intimate and familiar.
“They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands,” said an alleged eyewitness. “She was sitting on his lap and was really into him.”
Smith is apparently just the kind of bad boy that Rihanna likes. The NBA star made headlines in March when he was fined $25,000 by the NBA for tweeting a photo of woman’s thong-clad butt.
“He is the team’s most controversial player, so it’s no wonder that Rihanna likes him,” says a source.
Rihanna previously said about her love of bad boys, “I definitely like high-risk guys. I don’t like cream puff, corny guys … the nice ones that won’t hurt you. I like the edge. That’s the thrill for me.”
Well, it looks like Rihanna may have just made another slam-dunk in the bad boy department. And if the rumors are true, no doubt we’ll be hearing and seeing more of this pair in no time. And like Smith, check out six other men who were famously attached to Rihanna. –nicholas robinson
