Hollywood gossip: Rihanna 'dating Karim Benzema'; Harry Styles' Victoria's Secret
Music star Rihanna is reportedly dating Karim Benzema, of France and Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old beauty - who's previously dated the likes of Chris Brown and rapper Drake - was spotted enjoying a cosy meal with the Real Madrid ace at the Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California on Saturday evening, MailOnline reports.
The pair have been spotted together on numerous occasions over the last few weeks, including when they attended the 1OAK club in Los Angeles on Thursday (11.06.15) and when they were recently seen leaving a New York restaurant at 6am, before boarding a flight across the country.
The duo were first linked together in June 2014, around the time of the soccer World Cup in Brazil, where Karim, 27, represented France.
At the time, Rihanna tweeted her support for Karim, saying: "@Benzema I feel your pain right now!"
To which Karim replied: "@rihanna No pain no gain, thanks for the support!"
Karim has been in the US following the end of the soccer season in Europe, and is the latest sports star to have been linked to the 'Rude Boy' hitmaker.
Rihanna is said to have previously dated basketball hero LeBron James, baseball star Matt Kemp and basketball player Rashard Lewis.
Nicole Scherzinger has been dropped by her record label
Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly been dropped from her record label RCA Records after a string of bad sales of singles from her album 'Big Fat Lie'.
The 36-year-old singer is believed to have parted ways with RCA Records after experiencing a bad run of sales of her second solo album 'Big Fat Lie' in the UK charts.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "There is the feeling that Nicole didn't get the support she needed on the release to make it a success.
"A number of new songs leaked online a few weeks ago and fans were angry that they weren't on her last album."
The brunette beauty saw a dive in sales of singles released from the album. Her latest single - ironically titled 'On The Rocks' - only managed to reach number 90 in the UK charts whilst her first single 'Your Love' went in at number six in the charts but the second track 'Run' climbed to number 46.
The international recording artist collaborated with a string of top producers in an attempt to boost her performance including will.i.am, Dallas Austin and Beyoncé collaborator Toby Gad.

And the news comes after a difficult year for Nicole - who split from her long-term boyfriend, British Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton, 30, earlier this year after seven years together.
The former 'X Factor' judge has been unavailable for comment.
Harry Styles with Victoria's Secret Angel
Harry Styles was seen cuddling up to Victoria's Secret Angel Sara Sampaio outside a hotel in New York and the pair were spotted leaving the hotel within minutes of each other the following morning.
The 'One Direction' singer was spotted kissing the brunette beauty at New York's Ludlow hotel and the pair were seen leaving the same hotel the following morning within minutes of each other.
A source told the The Sun newspaper: "Harry had been partying with a group of friends at the Ludlow but seemed very friendly with Sara. There was definitely chemistry there as they hugged and kissed each other when she left. But everyone thinks something as up as she came back and they left so soon after each other the next morning.
"Sara left at 11am dressed exactly the same. Then Harry walked out at 11:15am with his hair up in a bun on his head. It looked like he'd been partying pretty hard."
The 23-year-old beauty - who was the first Portuguese model to appear in the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and won the Portuguese Best Female Model Golden Globe multiple times - has already gained his confidence.

The 1D source revealed: "Discretion and privacy are absolutely key to him as he's been burned by some relationships. By all account, he trusts Sara."
Sara isn't the first Angel Harry, 21, has been romantically linked to as he previously dated Nadine Leopold.
