Rihanna dating basketball star JR Smith

2012-05-17 12:58
Los Angeles - Rihanna is reportedly dating New York Knicks star JR Smith.

The We Found Love hitmaker was spotting canoodling with the basketball star at Veranda nightclub in New York earlier this month and eyewitnesses say Rihanna appeared "really into him".

A source told In Touch Weekly magazine: "They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands. She was sitting on his lap and was really into him."

The sportsman is a controversial figure, in March he was fined $25 000 by the National Basketball Association (NBA) after Tweeting a photo of a woman's ass in a thong from his bed.

'Controversial player'

A source said: "He is the team's most controversial player, so it's no wonder that Rihanna likes him."

Rihanna recently unfollowed former boyfriend Chris Brown on Twitter after speculation emerged that an offensive song he released is aimed at the Bajan beauty and infers that she is promiscuous.

Chris - who also "unfollowed" Rihanna on Twitter following her actions - posted a link on the social networking site to his freestyle version of Kanye West's Way to Cold.

In the song, he raps: "Don't fuck with my old bitches ... like a bad fur ... every industry nigga done had her."

The rap continues: "Trick or treat like a pumpkin...just to smash her."
