While Rihanna and Drake’s recent duet appearances have had rumors flying, apparently our favorite Bajan has her eyes on another star. According to The Sun, Rihanna has been sexting back and forth with notorious ladies man Colin Farrell.
The rugged Irish actor, who plays a bad boy with a five o’clock shadow in nearly all his films, is apparently loving playing the rude boy role with the singer. Sources told The Sun, “Colin was taken aback by some of the texts. He reckons he might well be in there. They’re both single, so why not?”
He may have been taken ‘aback’ but he shouldn’t be surprised. Last year, sparks flew when the two stars met at a taping of The Graham Norton’s BBC talk show. Colin complimented Rihanna on her dress noting that it left her ‘limbs’ on display. After some time, Colin later elaborated on his compliment saying,
“They are very nice limbs. There’s probably a reason I mentioned them, I had to get them off my mind.”
Yeah Colin, you and everyone else with sight. The two have made plans to see each other more, when they cross paths in Los Angeles later this month. And while it will be interesting to see where this fling goes, we’re a little hesitant to throw our support behind RihRih’s latest choice.
While Colin is certainly on our list of blue-eyed soul candy, he does come with his fair share of baggage. The actor recently split with his ex, actress Alicja Bachleda-Curu. Though separated, the two have a young son together. And let’s put it this way, this man is no Robin Thicke.
Personally, I’ll say the news of this budding relationship has been a refreshing break from the are-they-aren’t-they storyline between Rihanna and Young Money’s poster child, Drake. Between Drake’s prolific conversation on the ‘almost’ romance and the rumor mill, it was getting to be a bit much.
Looking at the profiles of the men she falls for, Rihanna clearly has a type. We’re all guilty of going for the guilty pleasure, but rarely does the repeat offense lead to the stable type. Then again, few women have managed to turn sexting into a long-term love so maybe that just not what she’s looking for. Hey, sometimes a girl just wants to have fun.
While we’re a little weary of Rihanna going for yet another bad boy type, we have to admit, the two would make a pretty hot couple. But its hard to believe this could possibly lead to a good place for the singer. Ladies, what do you think?
