Singer Rihanna is reportedly dating Real Madrid footballer Karim Benzema.
The 27-year-old pop star, who has previously dated Chris Brown and rapper Drake, was spotted enjoying a cosy meal with the football ace at the Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica here on Saturday evening, reports dailymail.co.uk.
The two have been spotted together on numerous occasions over the last few weeks, including when they attended a club here on Thursday and when they were seen leaving a New York restaurant at 6 a.m. before boarding a flight across the country.
Rihanna and Benzema were first linked together in June 2014, around the time of the soccer World Cup in Brazil, where the 27-year-old sportsman represented France.
At the time, Rihanna tweeted her support for Benzema, writing: "@Benzema I feel your pain right now!"
To that, the footballer replied: "@rihanna No pain no gain, thanks for the support."
