- Rihanna and Karim Benzema were spotted together at a nightclub in 2015, sparking rumors about a romance between the two celebrities.
- Despite being seen together on multiple occasions, the nature of their relationship remains unclear.
- In a 2020 interview, Karim Benzema stated that he no longer follows Rihanna on social media and has never done so, adding more speculation about what happened between the two.
Throughout her career the Barbadian R&B singer and one of the richest women in the world, according to Forbes magazine, Robyn Rihanna Fenty better known only as Rihanna has stolen the hearts of millions of people for her talent and beauty but also that of some international personalities like the French soccer player of Real Madrid, Karim Benzema of whom today we will tell you the hidden romance that to this day continues to awaken nostalgia for what could have been.
Creator of hits like “Love On The Brain” and “Lift Me Up”, the song with which she would get her first Oscar nomination 2023 as part of the soundtrack of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, the CEO of Fenty Beauty and current wife of A$AP Rocky, Rihanna lived a hermetic romance with the French footballer winner of the Ballon d’Or 2022, Karim Benzema of whom they say she has not been able to forget.
If there is something that has characterized Rihanna in her career, in addition to her talent and beauty, it has been the secrecy with which she always handles the aspects of her private life, down to the smallest detail. Not to mention when it comes to the love affairs she has had, as happened a little more than ten years ago.
It all started at the end of May 2015 when the CEO of Fenty Beauty and the Real Madrid star were spotted for the first time having the time of their lives at a nightclub in New York City, a date that immediately made headlines in the world press due to the weight of both personalities in the world.
During the following weeks there were more than 3 meetings that drove the celebrities crazy, although little was known about what really happened between the two celebrities, who continued to see each other on different occasions but always with extreme secrecy.
Despite the different conjectures that were created since 2015 about the occasions in which they were seen together during the following years, the French player Karim Benzema was in charge of ‘putting an end’ to all the speculations created.
In an interview he gave in 2020, the 2022 Ballon d’Or winner came clean when questioned about what happened between him and the R&B and pop star, to which he answered evasively that he no longer followed her on networks and that he had never done so.
Far from clarifying what happened, Karim Benzema’s statements about Rihanna only added fuel to the fire about what happened between the two, since a lot of sources said at the time that the Barbados singer likes to be friends with soccer players, while others said they are just friends and nothing more.
A couple of months ago the Real Madrid star was awarded the Ballon d’Or while the “Umbrella” singer became a mother for the first time with her current partner, rapper A$AP Rocky, with whom she has been more in love than ever.
