Rihanna is dating a professional basketball player. I’m sorry Chris who? Rihanna enjoyed an intimate dinner with Los Angeles Lakers’ star Andrew Bynum at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills on Friday (17.04.09). A source told gossip website X17online: “They looked very couple-y, sitting real close to each other in the car.” This is the first time Rihanna, 21, has been spotted out with a man since she and Chris decided to take time away from each other to reflect on their relationship. Chris has been charged with felony assault and making criminal threats after he allegedly punched, bit and choked Rihanna until she was unconscious in his car on February 8. Good for you Rihanna, moving on and moving up.

All the trekkie fans in London rejoiced last night, as the premiere of the new film came to Leicester Square. Star Trek star Simon Pegg mentioned that it was a “geek dream come true”. He told BANG Showbiz: “For me, tonight is incredibly special. It’s the Empire Leicester Square. I saw films here as when I was a child. To be here myself, it’s a geek dream come true.” From the minute Pegg – who plays Scotty in the movie – got out of his car, fans were hysterically screaming his name. The noise was almost deafening, and the 39-year-old actor is pleased so many people showed up to celebrate their “nerdiness“. He said: “I love the ‘Star Trek’ fan base. They are world leaders in positivity. I’m glad so many of them are dressed up. It’s silly not to dress up and anyone who looks down on it is just cynical. The one thing about trekkies is that they’re out and proud. There’s no such thing as a closet trekkie.

Chris Pine, who plays Captain Kirk, was also impressed with the British fans. He said: “We were in Australia last week and it was far more laidback. I felt like I could have a barbecue and drink a beer. The response here is great. It’s not just the long-term fans who will like this movie. J.J. Abrams has created a great action film where you can escape into another world.”
