Rihanna: Shopping for a Home—and a New Man?

By: Betsy Waldman / March 25, 2009

Sounds like Rihanna is moving on from her recent relationship troubles with on-again, off-again boyfriend Chris Brown.

Us Magazine reports that the 21-year-old “Disturbia” singer has been shopping for a new home recently. Rihanna checked out several properties on Monday, including a $6.25 million, 5,913-square-foot home in the Holywood Hills formerly owned by Jerry Seinfeld.

“She was very quiet,” says Russ Filice of Sotheby’s International Realty. “She looked at three homes with three assistants and a driver. Her questions were centered around her lifestyle in the house; how she could entertain, how private it is.”

Filice adds that his client was “in a great mood” during the house-hunting expedition, and that she bore “no scars, no bruises, no nothing” from her alleged February 8 assault. “[She is] very sweet, very pretty,” Filice noted.

Could the songbird’s improved disposition be due to a new man in her life?

The Mirror reports that Rihanna was getting “pretty cozy” with former That ’70s Show actor Wilmer Valderrama during a recent visit to the Geisha House in Hollywood, where she checked out a karaoke night hosted by Valderrama.

According to an eyewitness on the scene, Wilmer rushed to Rihanna when she entered the establishment. “They were chatting and laughing for ages. They looked pretty cozy and relaxed in each other’s company. Wilmer was all charm and even had a bottle of champagne for Rihanna,” the witness reports. “Rihanna looked so pretty and Wilmer could hardly take his eyes off her.”

If Rihanna has indeed fallen under the romantic spell of Valderrama, she would be far from the first. The Miami-born sitcom vet has made the rounds with numerous Hollywood females, most notably Lindsay Lohan.
