Rihanna and the Coldplay frontman have actually been buddies for a few years, since they collaborated on the hit song Princess of China in 2011. Over the weekend, it was time for a catchup as the two chart toppers were spotted dining at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Los Angeles.
As the photos hit the internet, rumours soon started to do the rounds that the two are more than friends, following the breakdown of Chris’ 11-year marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this year.
A source close to Rihanna has spilled the real reason for the dinner date though:
“Chris is nice, a real great guy who makes her laugh but in no way are they doing anything other than talking business and music,” the source told HollywoodLife. “That’s it and that’s what they were discussing.”
“He’s cool and f*****g awesome but he’s not Rihanna’s type sexually or romantically. It was a simple business dinner and afterward, they bounced separately,” added the insider.
Perhaps the two were discussing plans for another duet? We’ll have to wait and see.
