Pop singer Rihanna and her bodyguard were spotted holding hands for the second straight night yesterday as they left da Silvano restaurant in NYC. The twosome are reminiscent of Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner in the hit movie The Bodyguard (1992).
The couple's startling public intimacy has sparked rumors that they might be undercover lovers. Word is that Jay Z hired the lanky hunk to protect RiRi in the aftermath of her beat down at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
Rihanna, a native of Barbados, has been romantically linked with other Caucasian men in the past such as Shia LaBeouf and Josh Hartnett.
By contrast, Beyonce and her handsome bodyguard, Julius, have never been spotted holding hands -- at least not in public.
Calls to Rihanna's
pitbull publicist were not returned.
