It appears that Rihanna has been kicking it with a new man.

The "Diamonds" singer has been seen partying within the last couple of weeks with soccer superstar Karim Benzema. On June 8, the two were at it again, hanging out together in Hollywood, Calif.

After leaving Hooray Henry's night spot early on June 9, just moments after Rihanna, Karim was seen purchasing a huge bouquet of roses (any guess who those were for?).

Rihanna and the Real Madrid star were also spotted hanging out in New York City last week, meeting up for a late night food run.


The two have tried to be careful not to be photographed together since they started hanging out last month, arriving separately and leaving separately, although they were pictured having a late-night meal in a back booth.

Riri and Karim have been friendly since they began flirting online last year. They were first linked after Karim's French national team was bounced from the World Cup in June 2014.

"@Benzema I feel your pain right now!" she tweeted, to which he replied: "@rihanna No pain no gain, thanks for the support!"

Rihanna -- always willing to play ball.
