It appears the Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t the only man at Real Madrid able to impress the ladies with his charm.
Stories in the celebrity press in recent weeks have suggested his fellow strike partner Karim Benzema has been dating global singing sensation Rihanna – forming a new celebrity couple that will certainly keep them on the front pages.
The pair have been seen out on a number of occasions while the Frenchman in away on holiday. They we spotted at a New York Diner together recently, while this weekend Rihanna and Benzema were also seen at the same nightclub in LA – Hooray Henry’s. It could have been awkward for the fledgling romance though, with Rihanna’s ex, Chris Brown, also seen partying at the same spot.
Benzema scored 22 goal goals last season although Real missed out on the top prizes. However, if it’s confirmed he’s dating Rihanna, it would be quite the strike from the 27-year-old.
Barbabos-born Rihanna has sold more than 150 million records worldwide, making her one of the most successful artists of all time. She was won eight Grammy awards and two Brit awards for her work, and in 2012 was named by Forbes magazine as the fourth most important celebrity in the world.
