The on-camera chemistry between Rihanna and her 'We Found Love' video partner-in-crime, British boxer-turned-model Dudley O'Shaughnessy, is undeniable. And after viewing the racy video visuals, it's no surprise that the two are rumored to be indulging in an off-screen romance with one another.

RiRi's emotionally-charged music video for the Calvin Harris-produced track, features both the singer, 23, and her on-screen love, 22, making out, simulating sex, dancing, laughing and consuming plenty of illegal substances. "I met him and I was like let's f---ing kiss and ... you know what I mean. We had to pretend how to fake f---," Rihanna reportedly told The Sun after "hand picking" the model to star opposite her in the video.

But now, rumors are swirling on the web that Ri's new man isn't actually into the ladies at all, with Rihanna fans filling message boards questioning his "straight status." In fact, one of the top automated Google search results for Dudley's name is: "Dudley O'Shaughnessy gay." The speculation about Dudley's sexual orientation follows the model's own claims that he is in fact single. O'Shaughnessy told London's Evening Standard, "We just got along. We were just like mates ... I loved it. I didn't want it to end," of his connection with his co-star.

"It's not that I'm looking [for a girlfriend] ... I don't want to say I want a girlfriend or I don't. If it happens, it happens," he added.
