It looks like there’s a new guy on Rihanna’s radar although they’ve known each other for years, Mercedes race car driver and Formula 1 champion, Lewis Hamilton.  Rumors of the two began to heat up when they were spotted together at the Kadooment Day event in Barbados.  They were then spotted again enjoying some watersports while still in Barbados.  It didn’t stop there as they got to NYC and went to dinner and 1OAK nightclub.

Hamilton was previously linked Kendall Jenner and Rihanna was previously linked to footballer Karim Benzema but both of those have seemed to fizzle out.

“They’ve had a flirtation for years and have always fancied each other, but since May this year they’ve been talking a lot. Finally their schedules allowed them to spend a weekend in the same part of the world and they made the most of it,” a source close to Rihanna told The Sun.

The pair reportedly dined at Da Silvano in New York before moving on to 1 OAK nightclub and RiRi’s penthouse for a private party last Saturday.  Video of them leaving the club is on TMZ Sports.

He’s definitely a cutie and she’s super hot so they make a good looking couple.  Let’s see where this goes.
