Is Rihanna Dating Basketball Star J.R. Smith?

“They Were Very Flirty,” Say Sources…

Rihanna may have finally put an end to widespread whispers she’s secretly reunited with Chris Brown.

The Bajan beauty, who recently teamed up with her ex beau for their smash hit track ‘Birthday Cake,’ is reportedly dating New York Knicks basketball star J.R. Smith.

According to In Touch Weekly, the rumoured new couple were spied cosying up at NYC’s Veranda nightclub.

“They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands,” a source told In Touch Weekly.

“She was sitting on his lap and was really into him.”

It's not the first time RiRi's been linked to a hunky sportstar.

Back in 2010, she reportedly had a whirlwind romance with baseball star Matt Kemp.
