Us: Rihanna & Leo spent VDay ‘whispering & staring into each other’s eyes’


I’ve tried to go easy with the raging fanfiction of the supposed Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio romance. We first heard of their alleged hookups about a month ago. They both partied together in St. Bart’s for New Years, and they brought the party stateside. Then came gross details about how they’ve been hooking up for years, and Leo is “the best she’s ever had.” I didn’t buy it because Leo doesn’t seem like he’d put in much effort.

There have been seen several additions to this mess. My favorite one was how Rihanna was pressing Leo to get a six pack: “Leo thinks it’s all highly amusing. He’s never had a girl tell him what to do, so you can imagine how much he’s loving it.” Come ON. I’m not making fun of Leo’s bod, but you know he wouldn’t do anything to retain a woman’s fancy. Da ladies all flock to him.

A story from last week said the greatest romance of our time was over because Leo was making out with a model in front of Rih. That sounds possible, but a new story from Us Weekly says DiCaprihanna lives:

She found lust in a hopeless place! Rihanna has one seriously sexy new piece of arm candy in the form of Leonardo DiCaprio.

The two stars, who have been flirting and orchestrating occasional meetups for months, took their fling to the next level this past week when they spent Valentine’s Day weekend together. The “FourFiveSeconds” singer, 26, was spotted with the Wolf of Wall Street actor in New York City.

On Friday, Feb. 13, Rih and DiCaprio did a little clubbing, hitting celeb-happy Manhattan hotspots. They continued their sexy weekend the next night when they both attended Paul McCartney’s secret concert at the downtown venue Irving Plaza.

“They were whispering and staring into each other’s eyes,” an insider tells Us Weekly exclusively of the pair’s get-together at the the show, adding that they were standing very close to one another as they took in the music and slipped out quietly together halfway through the show.

“He thinks she’s incredibly hot,” a second source tells Us of DiCaprio’s feelings for Rihanna, and adds that they’re looking for the same no-strings fling. “Like him, she’s not looking for a relationship!”

This is so ridiculous, but “lust in a hopeless place” is a pretty savvy pun. I can’t see either Leo or Rihanna whispering adoringly to anyone. Who is telling this stuff to Us?

Here’s a new wrinkle. Hollyscoop claims that Rihanna isn’t really with Leo at all. He’s simply acting as a wingman to his buddy, Richie Akiva, a nightclub owner in NYC. Why is this a semi-plausible theory? Because Richie has a photo of Rihanna on his Instagram page.

I don’t know if I buy this explanation. Richie posts photos of lots of celebs on his page. He also spent Valentine’s Day Instagramming a NSFW female tush photo, and it wasn’t Rihanna. I’m familiar enough with Rih’s tush to know this much. Richie posted this selfie with Kristen Wiig last weekend. That must mean they’re hitting it too.

Here’s a photo of Rihanna leaving a dentist’s office in NYC on Tuesday. She still looks fierce in miserable circumstances.

    Rihanna and Leo spent vday whispering, staring into each others eyes…. —>😂 I don’t know why but i find it so laughable… *snort
    Well, strange things happen before…😏 ( Penn and Theron, Clooney got married…)

  2. Jegede says:

    I find it interesting that anytime US Weekly (the only semi legit outlet that have written on this story as People, E!, NY Post have said nothing), they ALWAYS stress that its a fling and nothing more.

    That may be so, yes but did they have that constant add-on for other Leo exes?

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Looks cute even coming from the dentist’s.

    “They were whispering and staring into each other’s eyes,”

    My 12 year old self has traveled through time and is now writing for US magazine.
    Atta girl Tater!

    Sounds more like VD day

    • Jegede says:

      Bwaahhhhh! Are you from D Listed ?

      • Chesty LaRue says:

        I love dlisted so I probably unwittingly steal a lot of their jokes

      • Abbott says:

        I think Jegede meant someone over at the D shares the same name as you.

      • Jegede says:

        No she’s right.
        I meant the VD line is similar to the narrative surrounding these Leo/Rihanna rumors on Dlisted write ups and comments.

      • Chesty LaRue says:

        Oh I didn’t know that. I don’t comment there so it’s not me. I should change my name to busty st. Clair or hootie mcboob. I wish I was funny enough to think of an original name, I just steal them from tv shows.
        I wanted to use Dr mantis toboggan but I think someone at gawker uses that. Actually that will be my new username from now on

      • Abbott says:

        Oops. Ignore me. Carry on.

  6. Domino says:

    Pics or it didn’t happen. Leo only dates blondes.

  7. Abbott says:

    If I were dating everyone I took photos of/with, I’d be dating my neighbor’s beagle and lots of happy hour appetizers.

  8. Catelina says:

    Forget a 6 pack girl, get him to shave that creature off his face!

  9. Beth says:

    Ew. Stop.

  10. scout says:

    LOL! I can’t even imagine. What the? It would be fun if he proposes to her and get married in Venice, we all get to see Gondola mania again or may be in colorful sunny Barbados!
    Bendy didn’t do it Thames, I am still miffed.

  11. The only reason I don’t believe it? Riri’s not blonde. Even the SI models mentioned he only dates blondes. If he won’t go near beautiful brunette Brazilians, why should Riri be the exception to the rule?

  12. Saga says:

    She dating that little guy, last month TMZ reported that Leo was making out with a model in LA 10oak and Rihanna didn’t care she was too busy talking to the owner , who they don’t name , but is this guy Richie
    In that Instagram picture he’s at the SNL after party, that Rihanna went to as well, at the Zac Posen show Rihanna siting next to him to watch the show.

    Leo in St Bart’s was pap’d always surrounded by young models , so unless Rihanna was taking a number she wasn’t vacationing with Leo.
    She’s pictured with him Chappelle’s get together , no Leo and the club she went on V Day was Richie’s and everyone inside knew that she was with him.

  13. Josefa says:

    Stay away, Ri. You’re too way hot for him. And it’s not like you need his money.

  14. moon says:

    they are pictures of them leaving a club together….why rihanna,WHY?

  15. serena says:

    ‘one seriously sexy new piece of arm candy’ ? Um, who?
    Leo is not hot anymore. He just looks (cuz he is) gross. I was disappointed in Rihanna about this, I would have liked an It girl who said ‘no’ to Leo since that doesn’t seem to happen often (and I wonder why, seriously), but then I remembered she dated Chris douche Brown for a while and then I lost all the hope.
