|Date night: Rihanna enjoyed a dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica on Saturday with her rumoured new beau Karim Benzema|
They've barely been apart over the past week, but Rihanna and her rumoured new beau Karim Benzema still had time for another date night on Saturday [Jun 13]. The singer and the Real Madrid footballer were spotted enjoying a dinner at the singer's favourite restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. The rumoured couple ensured they had privacy for their cosy meal, sitting in a private room and not leaving for four hours.
Rihanna, 27, looked dressed down for her dinner, wearing a plain black crop top which showed off her tattoo collection. She layered some gold pendants over the top while she upped the glam factor with some tight curls in her hair and a slick of deep red lipstick.
French footballer Karim, 27, meanwhile was spotted leaving the eatery separately to the stunning singer, climbing into a car with a bodyguard. The sportsman was also casual for the date, wearing a denim jacket over a white t-shirt.

Karim shared a photo from his private jet filled with pals earlier on Monday as he flew into the West Coast, captioning it: 'Direction L.A.'
