Rihanna may have a thing for 90210's Tristan Wilds
We're closing in on a year since Chris Brown savagely attacked Rihanna, so it must be about time to hear if she's ready to date again. Forget the Justin Timberlake rumors; The New York Daily News says she's taken a shine to 90210's Tristan Wilds.
The 20-year-old actor showed up at a party Rihanna was hosting over the weekend at her L.A. home before leaving for London, and guests noted the sparks were immediately noticeable.
"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."
In fact, the pair met when a music producer introduced them. Wilds starred in The Wire and Jay-Z's Roc Boys video, and is working on an album of his own, which is a prerequisite for young actors these days.
"He's a real gentleman," the source adds. "She likes him a lot, and it shows. From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up."
The affection is only supposed to get more intense, the source promises: "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." Good, that'll keep us busy here at The Juice* for a spell.
