There’s no need to continue speculating about the possibilities: Team Rihanna has shut down reports that she’s now dating Usher.

Usher did recently note that he would love to record with the pop star, but the rumor mill took things one step further with stories that the two were “romantically interested” in each other. OK! Magazine reported that Rihanna and Usher hooked up during Coachella. The tabloid quoted a source saying the two “were so flirty” and were spotted holding hands as the exited a party at the music festival. The source claimed, “They’re having fun and hooking up.”

Apparently not, according to friends of the Barbadian beauty. A separate source close to the star told Gossip Cop that the story is just as bogus as previous ones.

Indeed, over the past few months Rihanna has been linked to a number of men, including actors Ryan Phillippe and Colin Farrell.
