Hook-Up Alert: Is Rihanna Dating the Knicks’ J.R. Smith?Published by Natasha Fierce on Friday, May 18, 2012 at 8:30 am.
Every bad girl needs a nasty boy, and this week Rihanna is rumored to be trying on J.R. Smith for size.
The pop princess and the controversial New York Knicks player (he was fined $25,000 for tweeting a photo of Joe Budden’s ex in his bed, wearing nothing but a thong) were spotted lookin’ like more than just friends at NYC hotspot Veranda last week.
An onlooker tells In Touch magazine, “They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands. She was sitting on his lap and appeared to be really into him.”
He may be the bad boy of the Knicks (not a hard task when you’re standing next to Lala Anthony’s old man Carmelo and 25-year-old virgin Jeremy Lin), but we fear Smith is still playing in the junior leagues compared to RiRi, who partied so hard in the Big Apple she wound up with an IV in her arm.
Watch yourself, Junior. Rollin’ with Rihanna requires more stamina than getting to the playoffs.
