Rihanna “In Love” With Brad Pitt?!
“Rihanna In Love With Brad Pitt: Singer Obsessed With Angelina Jolie’s Ex?” asks Celeb Dirty Laundry in a headline. The accompanying story states, “Rihanna is in love with Brad Pitt after her break-up with her former lover Drake according to a new report. In fact, there’s speculation that the singer is pining for the newly-seperated [sic] Brad Pitt now that his soon-to-be ex-wife Angelina Jolie has pulled the plug on their short-lived two-year marriage.”
Picking up these claims from Star, the webloid alleges Rihanna “has been waiting for the right moment to make her move on her long-time crush and now that Brad is single, she wants to make a move on him with the first opportunity she gets.” It’s said “sparks flew” when two met at a 2012 charity concert for Pitt’s Make It Right foundation, where they “got along so well at the event that it made Angelina Jolie quite suspicious, with her allegedly demanding that he stay away from the singer in one of her many angry outburts.”
“Some have even said that Rihanna has long been ‘a thorn’ in Angelina Jolie’s side as she had a hard time shaking off the incident for years,” claims CDL, which goes on to wonder, “So does this mean Rihanna’s handlers are going to try and arrange a date with the hunky heartthrob?” The site further speculates, “What Rihanna might be doing though is trying to make her own ex-lover Drake jealous with possibly hook-up rumors with the actor. If there’s one person that would make Drake envious, it would definitely be an A-list Hollywood star like Brad Pitt.”
Yet all of this is coming from the same online outlet that said Rihanna was pregnant with Drake’s baby two months ago. That’s the kind of accuracy level we’re dealing with here. And while that tall tale was made up out of thin air, this new one is based on a Star story that ridiculously speculated which celebs may want to date Pitt now that he’s split from Jolie.
The piece, however, was tabloid fantasy and rooted in fiction. While Rihanna and Pitt are friends, she’s certainly not “in love” or “obsessed” with him. But Star and Celeb Dirty Laundry are obsessed with spreading lies.
