Rihanna Denies Dating Darren McFadden


Did you catch wind that Rihanna was dating Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden? No? Us either. But just in case you were tuned into the rumor mill, Rihanna is adamantly denying any romantic link to the football player.

The two were first linked to one another in late April after being spotted in Hawaii during her Battleship promo. What InTouch Weekly described as a “steamy romance” was actually a strictly platonic greeting. According to TMZ, the international star did, indeed, meet the athlete…and his girlfriend. He introduced himself as a fan of RiRi’s music, and the 24-year-old beauty bought him and his lady drinks on the beach.

Way to screw up a story, right?

However, she may still be paying homage to her newfound friend with a recent photo. See below…
