#Goal! Rihanna’s French soccer player beau, Karim Benzema, has a leg up on the pop star’s former exes. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on why RiRi prefers Karim over Chris Brown and Drake!
Even though Chris Brown, 26, and Drake, 28, might be tough acts to follow, their former lady love Rihanna, 27, has found a man she’s even more enamored with. Yep, we’re talking about you Karim Benzema, 27! Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details about the Barbadian beauty’s predilection for the hunky Real Madrid athlete!
“Rihanna was serious when she said she’s taking a hiatus from rappers and those hip hop dudes. She was tired of being mistreated and lied to,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about our fave bad gal’s love life shakeup. Sorry Breezy and Drizzy!
“She’s over that energy and needs much more than bomb sex to satisfy her needs. She’s looking for the real thing, a commitment and that’s been hard to find from that crowd,” the insider explains. “The ‘Frenchman,’ that’s what she calls Karim — he knows how to treat her right. He’s a man, he’s charismatic and so sexy. She especially loves his accent.” Sigh. Boys with accents — they’ll always get ya!
From coast-to-coast dates in NYC and Los Angeles, Rihanna and Karim have hardly spent a moment apart from one another lately. In fact, the adorable duo would like to spend the rest of their lives together — according to a new report!
“It’s taken a long time for the relationship to get off the ground but she says that’s what makes it special. He’s the first guy she’s actually gotten to know before diving in head first,” a source told LOOK magazine. “She’s been telling people she’s never experienced anything like this in her life and that she trusts him like her best friend.”
Karim and Rihanna first met last summer at the 2014 World Cup tournament. Their romance didn’t begin to rev up until recently, though. HollywoodLife.com told you that they were getting cozy earlier this month and have been hot for each other ever since! Prior to Karim, RiRi was thought to be getting hooking up with Leonardo DiCaprio.
“Rihanna seems to have undergone a major transformation. She’s gone from saying that she doesn’t believe in monogamy at all, to talking about how she just wants to be with one guy,” the mag’s source continued, adding, “Secretly I think Rihanna would love a proposal. And Karim has hinted that he’s got his eye on a diamond ring just for her.” This couple’s future sure looks bright!
