Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton
Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton are said to be dating as their reported romance continues to blossom.
The two stars have apparently enjoyed a series of secret dates this year, including a night out in New York last weekend, after growing closer this year.
A source close to RiRi told The Sun: "They've had a flirtation for years and have always fancied each other, but since May this year they've been talking a lot. Finally their schedules allowed them to spend a weekend in the same part of the world and they made the most of it.
"They are both really busy but Rihanna has asked him to come to Rock in Rio in September so he can see her perform and spend time together."

The report claims the pair grew closer at the Met Gala in New York earlier this year, when Lewis - who had recently split from Nicole Scherzinger - sat with Rihanna at the after party.
It seems the Formula 1 ace is certainly interested and feeling a spark, with an insider close to him revealing he finds her "sexy" and "funny".
The source said: "He is a bit infatuated with her and thinks she is not only sexy but incredibly funny, although he knows she has a reputation as a heartbreaker."
