London: Singer Rihanna and actor Ryan Phillippe have secretly met up on numerous occasions over the course of the last few months, it has emerged.
According to a US magazine, the pair met up after Rihanna’s relationship hit the rocks with baseballer Matt Kemp, and whilst Phillippe was casually dating actress Amanda Seyfried.
“They initially hooked up when things were strained with Matt Kemp,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling America’s Us Weekly.
According to the report, the couple has been top secret about their relationship by pretending they aren’t even interested in each other.
At that recent pre-Grammy event in Los Angeles, onlookers claimed 36-year-old Cruel Intentions star approached the 23-year-old only to be rejected.
While Barbados-born singer apparently spurned his advances, it has been claimed they actually spent the night together that evening.
The pair has since been spotted at two more separate events.
The both attended Bing’s Two Kings Charity Event last weekend and he also attended Rihanna’s 23rd birthday the following night.
“They hung out a bit, but were discreet. It is still very casual. Clearly they are keeping it on the downlow,” the source added.
