Sources say singer Rihanna has set her sights on a new man. Former Kentucky forward James Young is a freshly signed NBA player, which means he is flush with cash and looking for a girlfriend to spend it on.
Young caused a commotion when he was spotted sitting next to Rihanna at a Brooklyn Nets NBA playoff game in April. Both kids have had plenty of time to get to know one another better. They are both signed to Jay Z‘s Roc Nation management agency.
At the tender age of 18, James is still young enough for Rihanna — a seasoned woman of 26 — to mold into the man her father would want her to marry.
Young was drafted on Thursday by the Boston Celtics with the 17th overall pick. During the press reception Young was asked about his relationship with the “Man Down” singer.
“I got to talk to her a little bit,” he said. “She’s a cool person, a sweet lady, and I kind of met her at halftime, too. She’s really nice.”
When asked if he plans to invite her to Boston Celtics games, he said, “Yeah, I mean, of course I will. Who wouldn’t? If she wants to come, I definitely would.”
