Is rapper Travi$ Scott dating pop singer Rihanna? The two were spotted dancing and making out in a club in Paris recently.
Sources claim that the pair danced the night away at L’Arc Nightclub in Paris. Although Scott and Rihanna have yet to confirm the status of their relationship, they have been seen spending time together a number of times. Scott even rapped about “smashing” the pop singer during a concert performance.

One source confirmed that they were also at the Seven nightclub in Paris on Thursday. Scott, who co-wrote Rihanna’s “B***h Better Have My Money,” tried to escape photographers outside the bar, but he was easily recognized because of his dreadlocks.
Rihanna and Scott were romantically linked after they attended a September 10 New York Fashion Week party together, and, obviously, they were more than just good friends, as they were seen getting really cozy with each other.
The pair danced all night and were seen kissing. The pop singer kept the rumor mill rolling when she included Scott as her co-model for Puma, where she has been appointed women’s creative director. The pair looked hot as they posed back to back in the official advertisement for The Creeper campaign.

“Travi$ and Rihanna are dating, officially… It’s already very serious. He’s very into her,” an insider told E! News.
After her tumultuous relationship with former lover Chris Brown, Rihanna is said to be taking things slowly with her rumored boyfriend, as she does not want to be hurt again. Some sources claim the pop star is totally in love with Scott and that she loves him more than her former beau. But, because of her past experience, she is trying not to get too involved.
Many believe that she is drawing boundaries to avoid experiencing the same heartache she suffered with Chris Brown.
“Rihanna is trying not to let herself fall for Travi$. She’s afraid to ever let herself be vulnerable again the way she was with Chris Brown, and she sees a lot of Chris in Travi$,” a source told Hollywood Life.
“They are both cocky, alpha, and have tons of swagger, especially with the ladies,” the source added, hinting that the rapper reminds her of Brown.
Back in 2009, Brown beat up the talented pop singer, which resulted in injuries that included a large bruise on her face, a bloody nose, and a split lip. Since then, Rihanna has promised to never get romantically involved with rappers like Drake and Brown ever again. However, it seems like she is about to break that vow, as she has fallen, once again, for a rapper.
Even though Rihanna was open about her feelings for Brown, this time around, she is making sure to guard her feelings. One source revealed that although the “S&M” hit maker has a huge crush on Scott, she is flirting with other guys as a way of preventing herself from “getting too caught up in Travi$.”
“Rihanna has fallen hard for him,” a source revealed to The Sun.
Scott met the pop singer’s friends and they reportedly liked him. Her friends all think “he is gonna be the keeper.” Her friends also consider her relationship with the rapper as her “most committed relationship after Chris Brown,” The Sun reported.
Travi$ Scott may have earned her friends’ approval, but the toughest challenge is meeting Rihanna’s mother, Monica Braithwaite, who is known to be very protective of her daughter, an insider said.
