In a story that we are having a very hard time believing, John reportedly has the hots for Katy's bestie Rihanna and has been sending her sexy texts, accordiing to OK! Magazine.
The magazine's sources report that John reached out to RiRi just weeks after splitting from her pal Katy, and that he was "begging her for a date."
“His texts were very sexy, and he said that they should get together," says the source.
“Rihanna was amazed when she heard from John,” a source reveals. "But deep down it didn’t surprise Rihanna because he has been chasing her for years.” Say what?!
Apparently, Katy was even aware of John's previous interest in Rihanna.
"Katy knows John has chased RiRi in the past," claims the insider.
So would Rihanna be interested in him? Perhaps, says the source.
"Rihanna may be tempted to invite John to a show and see what happens from there," the source says, adding that Rihanna "thinks John is cute." Uh-oh.
Okay, if you are having as much trouble believing this story as we are, we don't blame you.
In fact, Gossip Cop claims that reports about John getting in touch with Rihanna are "completely untrue."
So could there ever be "fireworks" between John and Rihanna? The world may never know.
