Eminem has hinted he and Rihanna are more than just friends and collaborators in a revealing new track.

In the lyrics to new tune Shady Xv, the rapper claims Rihanna calls him Pinocchio - because she loves "the way I lie".

The line is a reference to the pair's 2010 hit Love the Way You Lie.

He adds, "(She) sits on my face and waits for my nose to grow."

Eminem has made it a habit of posting provocative rhymes about music's leading ladies in recent weeks - previous tracks have featured raps about raping Iggy Azalea and punching Lana Del Rey in the face.
