Rihanna may have a new boyfriend – Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker.
According to reports on US gossip site mediatakeout.com, the R’n’B star, 22, recently began dating the rocker after the pair went on several dates together.
It may sound like an unusual pairing but the couple have in fact been close friends for a while – Travis taught Rihanna how to play the drums in March last year ahead of her tour.
He tweeted a pic of the two together along with the message: “Teaching Rihanna some things on drums. She JAMS!!!! Watch out for her!!”
Then in June the pair both joined Eminem for a rendition of his and Rihanna’s hit Love the Way You Lie during his gig at the staples centre in Los Angeles.
Rihanna split from her last boyfriend, baseball player Matt Kemp, in December, and was recently rumoured to be dating Canadian rapper Drake.
