It’s been less than two months since Rihanna and Drake called it quits in May, but it looks like RiRi has already found herself a hot new man! Here’s what we know.
Is Rihanna, 26, already over the single life? It certainly seems that way, as the stunning singer has reportedly been hooking up with Cliff Dixon, the BFF of NBA star Kevin Durant, ever since her split from Drake. And if the rumors are true, it’s more than just a fling — Rihanna and Cliff just might be the next “It” couple!
Rihanna’s New Man — Singer Hooking Up With Cliff Dixon: Is She Over Drake?
Rihanna and her rumored new boyfriend, former college basketball star Cliff Dixon, were spotted celebrating the Fourth of July together at Hooray Henry’s in West Hollywood, Calif. They were snapped looking very close inside the club and then again as they were leaving!
Cliff has also been doing some major social media flirting with Rihanna, leading us to think that their relationship could be heating up in a serious way. On July 9, he shared a throwback picture of a curly-haired Rihanna on his Instagram, with the telling caption, “She said they gonna hate no matter what, I said the PJ ready, Where you wanna go for lunch?”
And that’s not all — on July 3, the day before their sexy Fourth of July club date, Cliff posted another stunning pic of Ri and called her his #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday). He captioned the pic, “They ain’t hip.” Cliff, if you meant that we aren’t hip to your romance with RiRi, you’re dead wrong! We’ve definitely got our eye on these two now!
Nicki Minaj Disses Rihanna: Feuding Over Drake?
Drake may already be a distant memory for Rihanna, but last we heard, he’s still pretty heartbroken over losing her. And the rapper’s close friend Nicki Minaj reportedly isn’t pleased with how Rihanna handled the breakup, either.
“Drake has been pretty down since Rihanna dumped him,” OK! magazine revealed in late June. “She really broke his heart. Nicki wants to call Rihanna out on it. She’s very protective of Drake.”
If Drake was down then, he’s definitely going to be hurting after hearing about Rihanna’s new boy toy!
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Cliff the real deal or just a rebound? Would you rather see Rihanna get back together with Drake? Let us know!
