New Celebrity Age Gap Couple: Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio?

Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio

Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio CoupleWe 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!
