I must say, Rihanna has some weird ass taste in men. From Chris Brown to Leonardo DiCaprio, she doesn’t necessarily make the best choices when it comes to dating. But now she’s got a new man on the scene, Real Madrid player Karim Benzema, and I can’t quite figure out how I feel about that yet.
From Bang Showbiz:
The ‘Diamonds’ singer has been on a string of dates with the Real Madrid soccer player in recent weeks after first meeting at the World Cup tournament last summer and the 27-year-old beauty has reportedly told friends the relationship feels very different to her past romances with the likes of Chris Brown, Drake, and Leonardo DiCaprio, because she got to know him well through calls and texts first.
A source said: “It’s taken a long time for the relationship to get off the ground but she says that’s what makes it so special.
“He’s the first guy she’s actually gotten to know before diving in head first.
“She’s been telling people she’s never experienced anything like this in her life and that she trusts him like her best friend.”
And Rihanna is said to have been “completely swept off her feet” by the French sportsman – who has 16-month-old daughter Melia from a previous relationship – and friends are astonished by her transformation.
A source told LOOK magazine: “Rihanna seems to have undergone a major transformation. She’s gone from saying that she doesn’t believe in monogamy at all, to talking about how she just wants to be with one guy.
“It’s all because of Karim, he’s completely swept her off her feet.”
We know this isn’t complete bullshit given that they have been photographed together, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. I mean, it likely means they’re at least sleeping together, but since when is that a relationship? Especially in Rihanna’s world? (Seriously, just ask Drake.)
I suppose she could do worse, so stay tuned to see how this goes.
