Rihanna & Usher’s hot hookup at Coachella

According to OK!, Rihanna and Usher went home together after meeting up at a party at Coachella. The two left together and were holding hands, so if this is true it’s safe to assume that they were doing more than just flirting. The last we heard about Rihanna she was casually hooking up with Ryan Phillippe but he’s since coupled up with Amanda Seyfried. Usher has a girlfriend that has been trying to take over his career and get him to fire all his people. She was with him at Coachella, I found photos of her with Usher on 4/15, the day before this supposed hookup with Rihanna. Usher is known to cheat, though, and I have the sense that Rihanna would be up for it. Here’s more:

On April 16, the music was pumping, the Ciroc vodka was flowing, and Rihanna and Usher were making beautiful music together – and we’re not talking about singing!

“They were so flirty,” an insider tells OK! Of Rihanna and Usher at Coachella. “They left holding hands.”

Rihanna and Usher had a table near the DJ booth – DJ Jesse Marco was spinning with Djs Caitlin Moe and Mia Moretti – where they whispered in each other’s ears and laughed as stars like Paris Hilton and Kanye West watched.

According to witnesses, Leonardo DiCaprio was also chatting up RiRi, but at the end of the night, she went home with Usher.

“They’re having fun and hooking up,” an insider tells OK!.

“They have a lot of mutual friends; we’re surprised it didn’t happen sooner!” adds a source.

Kaiser and I were e-mailing about this, and we get the impression that Usher and Rihanna are not each other’s type. Rihanna just told Rolling Stone she loves to be dominated and tied up and Usher usually dates older domineering women. He then cheats on them in a misguided attempt to lash out at his momma for controlling him. This is just his passive aggressive way of getting back at his girlfriend for trying to take over his life.

    Haha, the only reason Rihanna goes to Coachella-ella-ella is so she can sing that annoying song of hers with new lyrics!

  2. Hollowdoll says:

    Well doesn’t Usher sound like every girls dream date. more like nightmare.

  3. guesty says:

    He has issues!!! No comment on Ronald McDonald hair.

  4. mln76 says:

    I don’t think so I don’t think she’s his type or he’s hers. I wonder what happened with Colin Farrell they were photographed going out to eat a few weeks back.

  5. HappyMom says:

    I thought he was on the down low? And sorry-but she has the worst taste in men ever.

  6. malachais says:

    Just one more notch on Rihanna’s bedpost, who hasn’t she slept with? I get the impression she has slept her way into fame from the beginning.

  7. Lala says:

    For some reason I don’t believe this! Usher is dating his new manager Grace and has been since he split with Tameka… plus he has a thing for older women… he’s never been linked to someone younger!

  8. notsoanonymous says:

    @malachais – That was the rumor when she first came into fame, that she was sleeping with Jay-Z to get her record deal. I didn’t really believe it back then but as she has gotten older, I sort of do.

  9. helen says:

    Rihanna – for the LOVE OF GOD stop the red!! It’s sooooo fake and due for a flea bath!!!!!!!

  10. Sigh. says:

    Coachella is deeeeep in paps. Where’s at least one photo of them hand-in-hand?

    And I thought he was there Apr. 15th, but she was there Apr. 16th.

    She’s starting to give Blake Lively competition with how many men have SUPPOSEDLY “hooked up” with them within the shortest amount of time. Whatever.

  11. margaritachum says:

    i think rihanna has a rule: to sleep with everybody that has a history of being an ass.

    and why did she tell how she likes sex? bitch, please, i don’t want to know that and no one really needs to know that. just keep it to yourself.

  12. HotPockets says:

    I always forget she is my age, 23! Homegirl has been with half of the industry. I really hope she didn’t sleep with JayZ when she first got her record deal, I think she was only 16 back then?

  13. LadyBert62 says:

    I hate that Ronald McDonald hair and her outfit in those pictures is just weird.

  14. really says:

    he is sooooooooooooooooooo gay!

  15. truthSF says:


    I agree. Usher was turned out when he was only 14-15 when he was signed under P. Diddy, who is well known to be gay.

    The stories I could tell you about these guys.

  16. danielle352 says:

    omggggggggg, this so needs to happen! she’s YOUNG (finally) and ferocious (compared to the others)! Hooking up would be explosive for each other’s careers..well his anyway.

  17. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Well, if this is true, she must be into pegging.

  18. Mykel says:

    I wish it should just be truth bcus av bn xpectin sometin lik this 4 usher but i hop it should just com to reality between him and Rihanna

  19. poodlemom says:

    P-Diddy is gay?? really? Wow…I did not see that one coming…or going! And it seems that Rihanna has been around the block! What ever happened to her and Drake? And will someone find out if Drake is really a virgin???

  20. Jenna says:

    it’s about damn time!

  21. harfang says:

    What Jenna said. At the moment I don’t care who this hurts because it sounds totally freaking hot.

  22. ADS says:

    I doubt this is true. Neither seem like the others type.
