Romance is in the air! Rihanna may be currently single but that does not mean she is not enjoying dating and spending time with friends and potential lovers. Recently, the Barbadian beauty has been linked to two athletes -- Formula One car driver Lewis Hamilton and Real Madrid soccer player Karim Benzema. However, sources revealed that Rihanna’s new romantic interest may be Hamilton.
According to E! News, the “We Found Love” singer and the British racer enjoyed a holiday getaway in Barbados last weekend. A source exclusively told E! that Rihanna spent time with her family and friends, but “Lewis was the only romantic interest on her mind." The insider shared that the two had fun going around the island and enjoyed “some private romantic time.”
Rihanna and the Formula One star were also spotted on a yacht with friends in the Caribbean Friday, reported People. Hamilton stayed dry on the yacht while Rihanna and her friends enjoyed a ride on an inflatable boat pulled by a catamaran.
When asked about Rihanna and Benzema, the insider said, "Karim is fading out and it looks like Rihanna has only one guy on her mind, and that's Lewis. She is taking it very slow and just having fun, but she likes who he is and what he is about. There's no label on them just yet."
Fans have been speculating about the men in Rihanna’s life, after she was seen hanging out with both Hamilton and Benzema separately. In June, romance rumors between the “Diamonds” singer and Benzema started when the two enjoyed breakfast together after a late night of club partying. Earlier this month, Rihanna also spent time with Hamilton during the annual carnival celebration in Barbados.
However, a source told E! at that time that the multi-awarded singer “hasn’t put a label on anyone” and that she is talking with both Hamilton and Benzema. “She is not at any point in her life now ready to settle just for anyone, but she is enjoying the time she has with her friends and also focusing on work," the source added. “She is having a blast in Barbados and feeling very carefree."
Meanwhile, fans will soon see more of Rihanna on the small screen. The singer will serve as a key advisor to Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell and Gwen Stefani in season 9 of NBC’s “The Voice.”
