They’ve been friends for ages and couldn’t be more on the same page.
Oh, those two. So much hip, talented, artfully disheveled warmth between them.
We’re talking, of course, about Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio, who, with his awards season behind him, is back to his ways between projects: the skin is back, he wants to have a good time and he’s the subject of a new batch. connection rumours.
Nothing new, given that any lucky one who parties with Rihanna tends to find themselves the target of speculation more than friends with RiRi (may we introduce you to our old friend Drake), but this is not the first times the platinum entertainer and the Oscar-winning actor seemed pretty close.
Rihanna and Leo were spotted enjoying the Neon Carnival at Coachella last weekend, with the exclusive after-party once again proving a magnet for celebrities of all stripes in 2016. They didn’t arrive together , but the actual time spent together was more of an “oh, what a coincidence!” moment.
Come on, he’s single, she’s single…they’re not anti-mixture…S-xy stuff, right? Let’s see how their seemingly random friendship was born – it turns out their shared interests go beyond living big and looking good…
In 2007, Rihanna and Leo participated in the global event Live Earth in 2007, her as a headliner in Tokyo and he as a speaker in Central Park in New York. So maybe they didn’t meet on this day nine years ago, but Rihanna’s participation in an event that would have touched DiCaprio’s heart so closely (and still would to this day, Leo remaining one of Hollywood’s most famous champions of environmental causes) can only add to the chemistry that erupted when they finally met.
It would have been a similar storyline a few years later when the two appeared on the Hope for Haiti Now telethon in 2010 – Rihanna from London, Leo from LA Still on different continents, but still an indicator that they have more in common than the joy of living .
Considering their cosmic paths have crossed every few years, they were on track to shake hands in 2013 or 2014. The first whisper of a rumor hit the hookup radar when they both rang in 2015 from the comfort of St. Barts – although there’s no evidence either was more aware of the other’s presence on the celebrity-friendly island.
They weren’t seen friendly in the same place at the same time until later in January at the Playboy Mansion, where they both attended a mutual friend’s birthday party. Then a few nights later, their paths crossed again at Caleb Followill’s birthday party at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood and they hung out during the festivities.
Still, a source assured us they were just friends, while another insider insisted it was nothing new, that the two had actually hung out “a long time” before (you see, celebrities can party quietly) and that the happily attractive Rihanna wasn’t looking to get serious with anyone.
Both career-minded, yet another talking point at Rihanna’s 27th birthday party in Hollywood Hills, and when they reunited in March 2015 at another private party in Beverly Hills.
So these two are going their separate ways, no longer in LA at the same time, with Leo kicking off his press tour for The Revenant and Rihanna on tour. In the meantime, she was romantically linked to Lewis Hamilton and Karim Benzema, but neither friendship joined the ranks of a great love affair for the singer.
In an interview for the November 2015 issue of Vanity Fair, Rihanna dispelled the idea that she was into casual dating, acknowledging that dating is hard but meaningless sx can just be depressing.
“That’s why I haven’t had sex or even really seen anyone,” she told the magazine, “because I don’t want to wake up the next day feeling guilty. I mean I’m horny, I’m human, I’m female, I want to have sex But what am I going to do – just find the first random cute guy I think is going to be a good ride for the night and then tomorrow I wake up feeling empty and hollow? He has a great story and I’m like… What am I doing? I can’t do myself. I can’t . It has a little to do with fame and a lot to do with the woman I am. . And it saves me.”
But the flames were fanned again last January, when Leo and RiRi were seen clubbing together in Paris.
Again, a source insisted they are just flirtatious friends who have a good time together, enjoying that they can just relax and have fun – and that story hasn’t changed. an iota since.
Aside from the fact that they might be making an effort to see each other (although going back and forth to exotic locations — like the Southern California desert — doesn’t even qualify as a celebrity effort. ), they are just friends.
Friends who go to the same parties.
