Washington: Colin Farrell’s pal has dismissed reports that singer Rihanna is dating the actor.

The ‘Only Girl In the World’ songstress and the ‘Pride and Glory’ stud just happened to be at the same Los Angeles restaurant on March 16, sparking new gossip.

“They are not dating. It was absolute coincidence they were at Giogio Baldi at the same time. Colin was there at a business dinner and Rihanna was across the room,” a source told People Mag.

After claims the two stars were ‘sexting’ back and forth, a friend of Farrell’s came to his defence, telling, “There’s no truth whatsoever to the reports and rumours that they’re dating.”
