The alleged new lovers are said acting affectionate at a farewell party she threw over the weekend.
Love is in the air for Rihanna and actor Tristan Wilds, NY Daily News reports. According to the publication, the "90210" star was a guest at the farewell party the songstress threw for her friend over the weekend at her Los Angeles house before she embarks on a set of London gigs.
"No one knew why Tristan was there initially, because it was not an industry party - it was very intimate," a source says. "But everyone quickly realized they weren't meeting for the first time, because they were openly affectionate for everyone to see."
"He's a real gentleman," adds the source. "She likes him a lot, and it shows. From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up. They'll keep in touch while she's away. They're already planning to use iChat and Skype to stay in contact until Tristan finishes shooting '90210' for the season and can fly out to meet her on the road."
Comment is yet to be made by both Rihanna and Tristan regarding the credibility of the dating report. The rumored lovers, in the meantime, are said being introduced to each other by a music producer who has worked with both of them.
