Rihanna’s dating life has always been a subject of speculation since she broke into the industry in 2005; her love interests have ranged from actors Josh Hartnett and Paul Walker to rappers Chris Brown and Drake, of which I’m sure y’all need no reminding. This year has seen the rumors shift to French football star Karim Benzema, with whom she has been seen sharing spending some time with during the summer.

However, it is her latest muse that has had the press particularly interested; Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton.

The rumored couple have been seen spending a fair amount of time together in Barbados and New York, which has begged the question of how serious the two are as a couple. Lewis gave E! News what seemed to be a final response, by stating that the two are nothing more than friends.

“You know, I’ve known Ri for a long time”, he explained. “We’ve been friends for a while. We get to hang out every now and again…

“Otherwise, we’re just good friends.”

Well there you have it, he’s spoken his piece. Is it a definite final response to the rumors? You can bet on the English and American press to not bank on that.
