Rihanna has reportedly found love with the New York Knicks star J.R. Smith. The Barbadian singer has kept the romance secret for weeks, though one source claims the pair were "definitely hanging out" in Miami, shortly after Smith's run-in with police last weekend, reports the New York Daily News.
The ballplayer, 26, was picked up in South Beach for an outstanding warrant for driving without a valid license. He reportedly paid his bond on Friday, leaving him plenty of time to hang out with Rihanna over the Memorial Day weekend. Insiders said Smith and Rihanna partied at the Liv nightclub in Miami's Fontainebleau Hotel on Sunday evening (May 27, 2012), with the singer's former flame Drake also in the building. Just like RiRi's ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, Smith has found himself on the wrong side of the law on numerous occasions. He drew the ire of Nba executives earlier this year, when he posted a picture of a naked woman in his hotel room on Twitter - getting fined $25,000. He was also sentenced to 30 days in jail following a car accident that 2007, which killed his close friend Andre Bell.
Rumors of the couple's romance first arose earlier this month, when Rihanna was spotted sitting on Smith's lap at the Veranda nightclub in the West Village.
