Rihanna is diving back into the dating game, but she looks to be “switching teams.” On Thursday night, the “We Found Love” singer tweeted, “I’m on my first date in almost 2 yearz,” right before she was spotted holding hands with a gal pal named Melissa Forde.

The 24-year-old pop star looked gorgeous in a long white dress, as the twosome grabbed dinner at Malibu’s Giorgio Baldi before hitting up Hollywood’s famed Roxbury nightclub. RiRi continued to tweet throughout the entire night, posting a pic with her gal, writing:

“#datenight my lover for the night.”

Rihanna’s dating life has been the subject of tabloid gossip since her violent split with singer Chris Brown in 2009, when he was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats.

Since the breakup, RiRi has been linked to a slew of other men, including Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher, singer Drake, and Dodgers All-Star Matt Kemp.

Do you think Rihanna is really dating her gal pal or is this just a innocent night out? Sounds off in the comments.
