Rihanna, who has always been in the news for her wild partying ways and relationships, has sparked yet another dating rumour.

And this time around, the singer has been linked with Real Madrid footballer, Karim Benzema. But could the equation just be professional?

The "Diamonds" singer, as we all know, is an avid soccer fan and it looks like she's given her loyalty a whole new dimension. The 27-year-old singer and the striker have been spotted on various occasions, not just spending quality time together, but partying wild as well.

But reports also suggested that it could be just professional. Apparently, the singer has been using her connections to help the footballer with his new project.

"Karim is a massive rap fan and has been here soaking up the scene and visiting studios with friends. He became friends with Rihanna at the World Cup and she promised to hook him up with producers and studio pals," a source told Daily Star.

The couple first met at FIFA 2014, and the two stars were romantically linked when RiRi tweeted her commiserations to Benzema when France were knocked out of the tournament. This is also when she claimed to have become a football fan.

After this, the duo has been spotted together on various occasions having dinner and more recently partying. 

Last week, a series of photos hinting at Benzema and Rihanna's dinner date were doing the rounds. The rumoured couple was at New York City's Cuban restaurant, Coppelia and the night before that they partied at The Griffin nightclub in the Meatpacking District.

And now, Benzema and RiRi were seen stepping out of Hooray Henry's separately after a night out on Monday, 8 June in Los Angeles.

TMZ captured a video of the duo leaving the club, where they reportedly had a good time. The two left in separate SUVs, but before they departed, Benzema bought the "FourFiveSeconds" singer a huge bunch of roses, the website said.

Well, we are not sure about the relationship status of the two stars, but hope Benzema helps Rihanna reach her goal of finding that perfect man.
