Rihanna's recent romance with a basketball star J.R Smith were just 'a distraction' from former boyfriend Chris Brown, it has been reported.
The 'We Found Love' singer was spotted with New York Knicks player J.R. Smith several times last month, sparking rumours of a romance between the pair.
However sources close to the star insist Rihanna isn't interested in taking things any further as she still holds a flame for Brown.
"The dates with J.R. weren't serious," a source told Look magazine.
"It was just a distraction - another wild night where she met the wrong kind of guy and had too much fun."
Rumours have been circulating that Rihanna has grown close to her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown again and was the reason behind Drake and Brown's alleged bar bust-up in New York earlier this month.
"She is definitely not over Chris. She tries, but then she'll bump into him at an event? and it takes her straight back. I think she clings to this idea that it's fate pushing them together," a source revealed.
"It's always an, 'If with her when she's talking about Chris? She just doesn't make good choices when it comes to men."
