Rumors of Rihanna and Andrew Bynum dating have been denied by a representative who insists both of them never go on a dinner date.
Rihanna and basketball player Andrew Bynum are not dating, a representative has confirmed. "There is no truth to the rumors about Andrew and Rihanna," says the representative when denying early report run by X17 Online that both of them have been seen enjoying a dinner date at Mastro's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills last Friday, April 17.
Setting the record straight on the nature of Rihanna and Andrew's relationship, the representative tells Radar Online that the twosome's meeting at the hot spot was just a coincidence. "Andrew was having dinner at Mastro's with his brother and Rihanna was also having dinner there that night, but they were not together. They were simply both having dinner at the same restaurant the same night," the representative explains.
While there hasn't been personal comment from Rihanna, Andrew has denied he and the songstress are more than just friends. Asked by X17 Online if his outing to Mastro's with Rihanna was a date, he said "No." Then asked if they were just friends, he said "Yes", and when pressed if their friendship could turn into romantic bond, he said "No".
