rihanna & leo dicaprio

*OK, it’s time for late evening/early morning gossip.

Dish Nation is reporting that singer Rihanna and actor Leo DiCaprio might just be an item.

The two superstars were together on St. Barts island celebrating New Years and TMZ is reporting that they were partying at the Playboy mansion over the weekend.

“Leonardo and Rihanna are getting very close, and she just adores him,” an insider told Dish Nation. “So much so that word among her friends is that she has her sights set on him becoming her boyfriend.”

“Rihanna is no shrinking violet and unlike many of Leo’s model girlfriends she’s got ‘a lot of game’ to keep him on his toes,” the source adds. “They have been together at parties and even spent time alone at friends’ holiday apartments in St. Barts.”

OK, we’ll just have to wait and see how that works out. However, in the meantime, “inside sources” say RiRi wants to bring DiCaprio as her date to the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony.

So far there’s no official response from Rihanna or Leo’s camp.
