We definitely didn’t see this one coming, but we’re impressed nonetheless—eternal bachelor Leonardo DiCaprio, 40, and singer Rihanna, 27, are rumored to be the hottest new age gap celebrity couple.
The pair has been spotted out partying together on several occasions, including on New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day. Most recently, the rumored age gap couple fueled the dating rumors when they were photographed together at Rihanna’s birthday bash, which Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly helped to organize.
While there’s a good chance that the two superstars are just friends, we’d much rather think this is really the start of a new May-December romance. After all, they’d be perfect together. Even Rihanna’s famous ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, agrees. When asked on a recent radio show what he thinks about Rihanna’s rumored May-December romance with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brown said he would give her a “high five” for it, because it’s a big step up. “You can only go up, and that’s the upper, upper echelon,” said the singer, adding, “I just tip my hat. I’m not a hater. I’m not envious, I don’t feel jealous.”
See? Even Chris Brown thinks Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio make the perfect age gap couple. As you can imagine, sources say their May-December romance is still in the very, very early stages, so we’ll have to wait and see if anything actually does come out of it. Stay tuned!
