In an unexpected and surprising twist, it turns out that instead of dating Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna is actually getting cozy with his buddy, Richie Akiva instead!
Rumors started to fly that the R&B superstar and Hollywood heartthrob were an item after they were reportedly caught making out at the Playboy mansion last month. Since then, there's been several run-ins between the two, but no confirmation on their relationship status.

New reports reveal the reason for their numerous run-ins is because Leonardo has actually been a good friend of club mogul, Richie, for years, and Rihanna has the hots for him!
A source told the 'New York Daily News' Confidenti@l column, "Richie was with Rihanna in St. Barth's — that's where it started. They've been hanging out together a lot."

The ‘Umbrella’ hit maker has been spending most of New York Fashion week hanging out at Richie's Up & Down club. Additionally, during a recent party hosted by her ex-boyfriend Drake, Richie even gave her a shout out and got the DJ to dedicate a track to her.
A club goer dished, "She's not showing up with Leo, she's showing up with Richie. I've been at 25 to 30 clubs where Rihanna was hanging out. If anyone else had done that, she would've been p***ed."
