Arsenal striker target Karim Benzema has been dumped by popular American singer Rihanna, according to reports.
This report is according to popular American entertainment media outlet E! News who claims the eight-time Grammy Award winning artiste has dumped the Real Madrid striker for Formula One Champion Lewis Hamilton.
The singer has been linked to both Hamilton and Benzema, but E! News learns that the romance between Rihanna and Lewis is seriously heating up.
“Rihanna and Lewis had a nice little getaway last weekend in Barbados. Rihanna also spent time with her friends and family but Lewis was the only romantic interest on her mind,” a source tells E! News.
“They had lots of fun together around the island and also got some private romantic time.
“Karim is fading out and it looks like Rihanna has only one guy on her mind, and that’s Lewis,” the insider said when asked about Benzema.
27-year-old Benzema has been heavily linked to Arsenal this summer, with manager Arsene Wenger keen on strengthening his attack with a proven striker this new season.
