Has Rihanna found a man who can handle and maybe even match her wild ways?

In Touch Weekly reports that the sultry singer and burgeoning actress is seeing New York Knicks player J.R. Smith.

One source says Rihanna is smitten by the pro baller’s own risque behavior. In March he got in trouble with the NBA (and was fined $25,000!) for tweeting a photo of a woman’s thong-clad butt.

“He is the team’s most controversial player, so it’s no wonder that Rihanna likes him,” reveals the insider.

The two were first spotted canoodling in New York City at the Veranda nightclub, where Rihanna was seen sitting on J.R.’s lap.

“They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands,” an eyewitness spilled to In Touch.

After burning a Twitter bridge with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown over some controversial rap lyrics, it looks like Rihanna is ready to move on!
