Rihanna and Tristan Wilds

According to the New York Daily News, Rihanna has a new beau. The pop/R&B diva -- who dated Chris Brown (we know how that ended), and was previously linked to Toronto-based rapper Drake and singer-songwriter Mr Hudson -- is reportedly dating '90210' actor Tristan Wilds.

The rumors began to swirl when Wilds arrived at a private party at Rihanna's Los Angeles home. "No one knew why Tristan was there initially, because it was not an industry party -- it was very intimate," a fellow guest revealed. "But everyone quickly realized they weren't meeting for the first time, because they were openly affectionate for everyone to see."

The Daily News' Gatecrasher reports that Rihanna and Wilds met through a music producer who is currently working with the 20-year-old actor on his upcoming album. Wilds is no stranger to the music scene. 'The Wire' actor appeared in Jay-Z's 'Roc Boys (And the Winner Is).'

According to Gatecrasher's source, RiRi and Wilds had a instant connection. "He's a real gentleman," says the source. "She likes him a lot, and it shows. From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up."
