Could it be that Rihanna is dating Karim Benzema? The pair has sparked dating rumors since the singer was spotted having breakfast with the French soccer player. This recent sighting might mean that Rihanna has officially moved on from actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
Rihanna, 27, and Benzema, also 27, were photographed eating breakfast at 24-hour diner. The rumored new couple were also partying together at Griffin nightclub. Rihanna and Benzema tried their best to avoid the paparazzi as they left the place separately, as previously reported via E! News.
Rihanna showed support for Karim Benzema last year over Twitter. She tweeted to the player when France lost to Germany during the World Cup.
RiRi wrote: “@Benzema I feel your pain right now!”
Karim cooly replied: “@Rihanna No pain no gain, thanks for the support!”
Now, it looks like Rihanna and Benzema could be sparking a romance with one another. An alleged source spoke to the Hollywood Gossip about their late-night date. It sounds like Rihanna and Benzema weren’t entirely alone during their meal. Not only did various onlookers spot them, but they also had a group of friends with them.
“Rihanna and Karim were across from each other … There were about four people at the table and a few more in another table from the same party. They came separately and they were speaking French.”
Various photos of the rumored new couple have quickly gone viral, as previously reported via MStarz. Benzema and Rihanna don’t look quite as cozy in the photos as onlookers said they were. That hasn’t stopped fans from thinking that RiRi and Benzema look cute together. The couple was cordial inside the restaurant, although they left the place separately.

So what happened with Leonardo DiCaprio? Rihanna was previously linked to DiCaprio, but neither star has confirmed the news about their relationship. As for DiCaprio, it appears that he’s moved on, as well.
The Wolf of Wall Street star may have moved on with another blonde supermodel. Leonardo is reportedly dating Sports Illustrated model Kelly Rorbach, according to a previous report via the Inquisitr. The two arrived separately at the CFDA Awards, but spent much of the night together at a closed off area at the event. One of the onlookers said that Kelly had her legs draped over Leonardo’s lap as they talked.
Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio were rumored to be dating since New Year’s Eve. DiCaprio is often known for being a womanizer who loves to date blonde supermodels and actresses. He’s been previously linked to Blake Lively, Gisele Bundchen, Erin Heatherton, and Miranda Kerr, so it would make more sense that the actor is dating a model like Kelly Rorhbach instead of a “bad gal” pop star like Rihanna.
