Given the rocky history surrounding Rihanna’s love life, it isn’t all that surprising that that public is so invested in her new possible beau.
Naturally, the internet has had a lot to say about the emergence of these photos (shown below).
Shortly after published the photos, Rihanna’s fans and followers took to the social sharing site to express their feelings about her new fling.
According to , who first reported on the story, Rihanna was staying in a posh villa at the time that the photographs were taken.Rihanna might, famously, not be looking for a man, but when she finds one, the internet is bound to track him down.On Monday, the singer was spotted in a pool in a villa in Spain with a then-unidentified man, setting off a cascade of theories by Twitter sleuths the world over.An alternate hypothesis: There’s really no beef, nothing to see here, move along. Rod; Rihanna, after dating a series of musicians including Drake and the rapper Travis Scott, found herself a billionaire. Rihanna was previously attached to Drake, with whom she’s had an on-again, off-again relationship that, by all appearances, finally came to an end last October, when Drake devolved back into his sadboy self and Rihanna continued to live her best life, earning honors from Harvard and Parsons alike.
