Rihanna can't seem to escape speculation about her love life. A week after she was rumored to be secretly shacking up with Chris Brown, the beleaguered chanteuse is now being linked to two different guys. Depending on which report you believe (and remember: neither is an option), she's either reconnected with a strapping, long-ago beau named Negus Sealy or is getting to know Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum.
"All the girls adore [Sealy] and call him the Love God!" a hyperbolic-tending source tells London's News of the World. "He and Rihanna were seeing each other before she hit the big time."
The two were photographed frolicking on the beach in Barbados during Rihanna's recent getaway with Katy Perry, and the tab claims Sealy has been "a shoulder to cry on."
Meanwhile, X17Online.com says Rihanna dined with Bynum over the weekend at Beverly Hills steakhouse Mastro's, the same place they supposedly chowed down together last month.
The NBA-er, however, has denied being anything more than friends with the singer, who joined mentor Jay-Z for dinner on Thursday night in Los Angeles.
A passel of paparazzi tagged along for the meet-up, and one of them got a smile out of the usually reserved music mogul by asking whether Brown was responsible for the swine flu.
Meanwhile, in related news, it wouldn't be a stretch to assume that Rihanna's recent getaway with gal pal Katy involved a few boy-centric chat sessions, which perhaps convinced the girl-kissing popster that her rocker ex, Travis McCoy, might be a catch, comparatively speaking.
Just days after the Gym Class Heroes front man told a reporter that he and Perry were reunited and it felt so good, the pair engaged in a bit of PDA on a Miami beach.
"They were very affectionate," a source tells the London Sun of their touchy-feely outing late last week, "kissing and hugging while sipping cocktails."
"She sneaked into the hotel unnoticed," says a spy, "and went straight to his room for a few hours before heading back out undetected by other guests."
