Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton have been secretly dating.

The ‘Diamonds’ hitmaker and Formula One racing driver were spotted together at a New York restaurant before heading to a nightclub and have reportedly been dating for months.

A source said: “They’ve had a flirtation for years and have always fancied each other, but since May this year they’ve been talking a lot.”

“They are both really busy but Rihanna has asked him to come to Rock in Rio in September so he can see her perform and spend some time together.”

The couple set rumours flying after meeting at the Met Gala in New York earlier this year.

The source close to the 27-year-old beauty told The Sun on Sunday: “That’s when things between them started heating up.
