Rihanna, 25, also shared the moment with her Instagram followers, posting a second picture taken with her famous fan. “Ladies eat your heart out!!!,” she wrote. “#CristianoRonaldo cam to get jiggly with ya girl #diamondsworldtour #backstagelife #nobasiczone.”
The Barbadian beauty is currently single after splitting from her on-off rapper boyfriend Chris Brown. Cristiano, meanwhile, is in a longterm relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk, who he has been dating since 2010.
It”s not the first time the Portuguese footballer has made headlines posing with popstars. Last week, he met One Direction at the Real Madrid training ground as the boys took time out of their European tour to train with Jose Mourinho”s squad in the Spanish capital.
After a brief kick about, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson had the chance to meet some of the players, including Cristiano, and were presented with Real Madrid shirts.
