SPECULATION has been rife for months that Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton were becoming more than just friends. The gorgeous pair were photographed getting cosy while parting together in the Caribbean and New York recently. And the Formula 1 racer has finally spoke out about the rumours. But it’s not good news for those who hoped Rihanna and Lewis would be come the next big A List couple.
The F1 star has confirmed the pair are just good pals. Hamilton – who split with Nicole Scherzinger in February – told E!: “You know, I’ve known Ri for a long time. “We’ve been friends for a while. We get to hang out every now and again…”
The pair have got people talking ever since they were spotted flirting at the annual Crop Over Festival in Barbados. Last month, it was believed the romance between Lewis and Rihanna was hotting up, but an insider said the singer wasn’t in a rush to put a label on it.
“Rihanna and Lewis had a nice little getaway last weekend in Barbados. Rihanna also spent time with her friends and family but Lewis was the only romantic interest on her mind,” a source told E!News. “She is not at any point in her life now ready to settle just for anyone, but she is enjoying the time she has with her friends and also focusing on work.”
