Rihanna‘s love life has been the talk of the town these days — from gossip columns, to open letters by Russell Simmons, to Ri’s own mother — everyone wants to know who the singer will hook up with next. The latest rumor is that Rihanna spent a PDA-packed night with New York Knicks star J.R. Smith, AOL Music reports.

According to In Touch, 24-year-old Ri and the 26-year-old ball player were recently spotted canoodling with each other in front of everyone at Veranda nightclub in New York City. “They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands,” an eyewitness told the magazine. “She was sitting on his lap and was really into him.”

The source went on to point out that the bad boy basketball star definitely fits Rihanna’s dating “type.” “He is the team’s most controversial player, so it’s no wonder that Rihanna likes him,” the source said.

Just a couple of months ago in March 2012, the father-of-two was fined $25,000 by the NBA for tweeting a scandalous photo of a model’s thong-clad rear end in his bed. The athlete has since shut down his old Twitter account after being accused of writing in the style of the notorious Los Angeles Bloods gang.

J.R. was also sentenced to 30 days in prison, 500 hours of community service and suspended from the NBA for seven games after he plead guilty to causing a reckless driving accident in 2009.
