For someone who calls herself Badgal, Rihanna has kept her love life relatively private over the past several years. Since splitting with Chris Brown in 2011, the singer has not publicly confirmed that she’s dated anyone else–but she has been spotted out and about with plenty of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. Of course, there is Drake, the second-half of the music world’s ultimate will they, won’t they couple. The pair of been rumored partners for nearly seven years, reaching peak “will they” following last year’s MTV VMAs, where Drake publicly declared his love for Rihanna. She’s also been linked to some of Drake’s rapper peers, including A$AP Rocky and Travis Scott. There’s also been athletes (Rashard Lewis; Matt Kemp), actors (Leonardo DiCaprio; Josh Hartnett), and one very famous multi-hyphenate (Justin Timberlake). In short: Rihanna does not have a type. Case in point: her latest conquest, Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel. Here, a look back at some of Rihanna’s most famous rumored love connections.
In 2008, the pair claimed to be just friends, despite getting close for a performance at Z100’s Jingle Ball in 2008 (and plenty of paparazzi photos pointing otherwise).
Four years after the domestic violence case heard around the world, Rihanna and Chris Brown reunited at the 2013 Grammy Awards before splitting for good.
In 2007, Rihanna was rumored to be seen out and about with actor Josh Hartnett—a relationship she later denied. The two were photographed together that year, albeit during an appearance on TRL.
One of Rihanna’s few confirmed relationships was with Matt Kemp, outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The pair dated for just under a year in 2011.
If the Internet were to have their way, Rihanna would have settled down with Drake long ago. The pair have long been connected, since performing together at the 2011 NBA All-Star game.

Soon after, Rihanna and Drake got up close and personal for a performance at the 2011 Grammy Awards.

Rihanna was spotted with race-car driver Lewis Hamilton at several events, including the the 2014 British Fashion Awards, but Hamilton claimed the two were just friends.
Drake isn’t her only co-performer that Rihanna’s been rumored to also have a romantic tie with. Following their own performance at the Video Music Awards in 2012, it was thought that the singer was dating A$AP Rocky.
Another rumored, never confirmed conquest of Rihanna? Justin Timberlake. The two were seen together at the 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala honoring Tom Ford, where they both attended as a guest of the designer.
