Are Rihanna and Darren McFadden of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders dating?

The singer made no secret of their connection during a late-April trip to Honolulu, Hawaii, during which she also promoted her film, Battleship.

The question is whether it’s a real relationship or just a typical fling.

In any case, it sounds like the two hit it off quite nicely there.

“Rihanna rushed into the ocean, but Darren had to be coaxed,” an onlooker reveals. “She kept calling his name, and at one point, she discreetly flashed him. That did the trick.”

“He ran into the water, and they started kissing.”

While they’ve only been “dating” a few weeks, the couple was spotted holding hands in the lobby of their hotel, The Kahala Hotel & Resort.

Later, they were dancing at a club and cuddling in a lounge chair.

But a source also added that there could be other motivations … like getting inside Chris Brown‘s head: “She’s using Darren to make him jealous.”

On May 2, she made a point of wearing a Raiders shirt to a strip club, then she tweeted numerous pictures in the hopes that Chris would see.

Maybe she just likes silver and black attire?
