Lakers’ Bynum Buddying Up With Singer Rihanna

After experiencing alleged domestic abuse at the hands of singer Chris Brown, it figures that R&B songstress Rihanna would be on the rebound looking for a man to treat her right. And it seems that the beauty from Barbados has bounced her way into the arms of an NBA baller.

Andrew Bynum Rihanna

YOUNG, BLACK & FABULOUS dribbles up news from X17 ONLINE that Rihanna was recently spotted out on a dinner date with Lakers star Andrew Bynum.

The duo were seen sharing some meat at Maestro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills last Friday. And maybe that’s not all they were sharing that evening:

When they left together, a witness reports that they looked “very couple-y, sitting real close to each other in the car.”

Rihanna must have been impressed with Andrew’s strength & skill after seeing Bynum lift Playboy Playmates above his head & hula hoop with said hotties - all part of his knee rehab, we suppose.

Ain’t love grand. Unless the singer was planted by the Utah Jazz as a distraction for Bynum & the Lakers’ during their opening playoff round. (So far, it hasn’t worked.)

Or worse, Rihanna is just using Andrew to get to Kobe. And then it turns out that Bynum & Bryant were just pawns in Rihanna’s big plans to land to the Lakers’ real ladies man: Sasha Vujacic.
