Rihanna has a secret crush on New York Giants player Odell Beckham Jr. and is talking to the NFL superstar often, Hollywood Life reported Sunday. The latest report comes amid rumors linking the “Diamonds” singer to record producer Travis Scott and her former boyfriend Chris Brown.
“Simply speaking, Odell can get it. Rihanna would rock his little world,” a source close to Rihanna told Hollywood Life. “She’s secretly attracted to him on the highest level. Quiet as it’s kept, they’re talking. It’s just texting and whatnot. It’s super platonic. For the first time ever in her life, she’s shy. She doesn’t want him to know just how much she wants him.
“They’re friendly and Rihanna hasn’t told him that she’s interested in being more than just friends but that certainly is what she secretly wants,” the source added.
The report also says that Rihanna, who is expected to soon release her new album "Anti," was deleting other shows from her DVRs to save enough space to record Odell’s games. “She loves looking at his body, especially his a-- in those tights,” the source said, according to Hollywood Life, adding: “She has a thing for bad boys, and Odell is in on her mind real tough.”
The report also said that even though the “Stay” singer was getting close to Scott, she did not want to settle in one relationship.
However, another report said earlier this month that Brown, who recently started working on a song with Rihanna, invited his former girlfriend to join him for the final game of basketball player Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles, to be held in April 2016, because he misses spending time with her. The two also worked together for Brown’s song “Counterfeit.”
Previous reports also said that the “Umbrella” singer considered Brown as the “love of her life” despite filing a case of domestic violence against the 26-year-old.
