London: Singer Justin Bieber says he asked Rihanna out on a date when she sat next to him during a recent basketball game, but she turned him down because of his age.

The 16-year-old superstar was pictured joking around with the "Umbrella" hitmaker during the match in Los Angeles and took the opportunity to make a move on his 23-year-old crush, only to be rejected, reports

"I asked her out. It didn`t go so well, since I`m not with her. I asked her out and she was basically like, `You`re too young`," he said.
