Karim Benzema is NOT cheating on Rihanna with Karrueche Tran, despite a new tabloid story wrongly claiming “history seems to be repeating itself.” Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the report. A rep for Tran tells us there’s not a word of truth to it.

The allegation comes from Life & Style, which announces Rihanna’s “new beau” is “secretly cheating on her” with Tran. A so-called “insider” claims to the outlet, “Rihanna is Karim’s main chick, but Karrueche is his side chick.” The alleged affair supposedly began after Tran and Benzema met last month, “just after he and Rihanna started hooking up.”

Now, claims the Life & Style snitch, Benzema will “bring Rihanna to party with friends and sleep over at his L.A. rental.” And then to see Tran, the tipster alleges the soccer player has “his driver pick her up and bring her to him at a hotel.” The magazine even advises that Rihanna should “cut this one loose.”

It actually seems Life & Style cut out some facts in its story. First off, Benzema and Rihanna aren’t even believed to be seeing each other anymore. But regardless, there is NOTHING going on with the athlete and Tran.

Tran’s rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively there’s “no truth at all” to the cheating claims. In fact, we’re told Tran “doesn’t even know” Benzema, because she’s “never met him.” Unfortunately, it seems Life & Style just wanted to create a new love triangle with Chris Brown’s exes. Shameful.
