Move over, Darren McFadden. According to reports, Rihanna is turning her attention over to another random athlete in the New York Knicks' J.R. Smith.
Sources tell In Touch that the two are a thing. A fake thing, probably, but good enough for 2-3 hours of celebrity gossip before she denies it on Twitter.
The two were spotted, allegedly, getting cozy at Veranda nightclub in NYC.
“They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands,” an eyewitness tells the magazine. “She was sitting on his lap and was really into him.”
How serious is it? Not very. But those who know the wild child say she's attracted to bad boys like J.R., who's no stranger to raising eyebrows himself.
J.R. Smith, 26, made headlines in March when he was fined $25,000 by the NBA after tweeting a pic of a woman’s ass in a thong from his bed. Classy.
“He is the team’s most controversial player, so it’s no wonder that Rihanna likes him,” says a source. In the past, the singer has said of her "type":
“I definitely like high-risk guys. 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.”
