*Rihanna reportedly spent her Memorial Day weekend hooking up with New York Knicks star J.R. Smith.

According to the New York Daily News, the alleged couple have been seeing each other for weeks, with one source claiming they were “definitely hanging out” in Miami, shortly after Smith’s run-in with police last weekend.


The athlete, 26, was picked up in South Beach for an outstanding warrant for driving without a valid license. He reportedly paid his bond on Friday, leaving him plenty of time to hang out with Rihanna over the Memorial Day weekend.

Insiders said Smith and Rihanna partied at the LIV nightclub in Miami’s Fontainebleau Hotel on Sunday evening, with the singer’s former flame Drake also in the building.

Rumors of the couple’s romance first arose earlier this month, when Rihanna was spotted sitting on Smith’s lap at the Veranda nightclub in the West Village.

The ball player drew the ire of NBA executives earlier this year when he posted a picture of a naked woman in his hotel room on Twitter – getting fined $25,000. He was also sentenced to 30 days in jail following a car accident in 2007, which killed his close friend Andre Bell.
