J.R. Smith dating Rihanna?
Rihanna sure does love her athletes. The singer and actress reportedly was seen getting cozy with Knicks guard J.R. Smith at a club recently, sparking rumors that they may be dating.
“They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands,” an eyewitness told In Touch. “She was sitting on his lap and was really into him.”
In Touch says they were together on May 6, which is the same day the Knicks won Game 4 of their first-round playoff series with the Heat — their only victory of the series. Either Rihanna was a pregame good luck charm, or Smith chose to celebrate the win with her.
The magazine also suggests Smith, who has sparked controversies in the past, has the type of edgy personality Rihanna likes.
“I definitely like high-risk guys,” Rihanna has said. “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.”
We have no idea if the two are really dating or if they just got cozy together for one night, but we are guessing that whatever happened, Rihanna likely was paying.
