Are Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio dating? According to unofficial sources, the answer is a resounding “no.” Despite incriminating photos that surfaced of a meet-up at L’Arc club in Paris, Rihanna is not dating Leo any time soon, sources say.
After photos surfaced of Rihanna and Leo getting awfully chummy in a corner of the famous nightclub — DiCaprio looks like he’s leaning in for a kiss from Rihanna — sources told People that Rihanna is “just friends” with the Wolf Of Wall Street star. Eyewitnesses said that Rihanna saw Leo, and “came by with Cara [Delevingne] and said hi,” nothing more. The eyewitness confirmed that Rihanna left the club with Cara that night.
So, the photo of Leo leaning in for a kiss from Rihanna might have just been a moment where DiCaprio could not hear the singer very well.
Similarly, a source close to Rihanna and Leo confirmed to Us Weekly that “Leo was at the club for a private party and Rihanna came with Cara Delevingne separately.” After arriving, Rihanna spotted the actor, and “went over to Leo to say ‘hi,’ congratulate him and give him a kiss on the cheek.” Rihanna then “chatted for a few minutes” with DiCaprio.
Rihanna is currently in The City Of Lights to film the movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which she costars in alongside Cara Delevingne. Leonardo DiCaprio was in Paris because he is in the middle of a European press tour for The Revenant, People reports.
News of a hook up between Leo and Rihanna started in early 2015, when RiRi was spotted “making out” at the Playboy mansion with the actor. Leo reportedly attended a birthday bash for Rihanna last February, then was spotted with the singer in New York, in May, 2015. At the time, both DiCaprio and Rihanna denied any romantic involvement.
Now that Leo is “definitely single,” according to TMZ, it seems their love lives are ripe for rumors.
Rihanna is also rumored to be performing at Super Bowl 50 alongside halftime show headliners Coldplay and guest singer, Beyoncé. Rihanna fans are eagerly awaiting the release of her much-anticipated album, Anti, and are hoping that news the record has finally dropped will be announced at Super Bowl 50.
Rumors that Rihanna will perform at the game began surfacing after a video was released that features Rihanna wearing a gold slip dress and strolling onto a football field. In the video, Rihanna faces off against NFL analysts Jim Nantz, Phil Simms, and James Brown, while none other than Stephen Colbert tosses a coin as he pretends to referee the confrontation.
After the coin-flip, Nantz tells Rihanna that “we go first,” and the singer tells the analyst that she is “worth the wait,” giving further speculation that the singer will drop her album Anti sometime soon. The video also seems to confirm that Rihanna will sing at the 2016 Grammy awards ceremony, as one side of the coin Colbert flips has a logo for Super Bowl 50, while the other side has the Grammy logo.
While in Paris, rumors have surfaced that Rihanna is practicing for her upcoming world tour which kicks off in February in San Diego. Like the album, the tour is also called Anti, giving further speculation that the album will drop before her world tour commences.
As of recently, Rihanna was still picking out songs for the album, which has experienced a number of delays. In a recent interview, “Diamonds” songwriter Sia mentioned she met with Rihanna, who wanted to hear more music for Anti. Sia said that Rihanna left with four songs, but Sia did not know if any would be included on Anti.
