On the same day as the announcement that Rihanna has no choice but to testify against ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, the hottie was seen partying with friends- including one Aubrey “Drake” Graham, with whom the singer has been recently linked. The fact that the pair was caught smooching at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in Manhattan on may 18 has added even more fuel to the link up rumors.
On Wednesday night, the couple was seen laughing and chatting at a bash for the Black Eyed Peas’ Target deluxe version of their album, The E.N.D., held at the N.Y.C. nightspot The Griffin.
Rihanna looked absolutely fabulous in a light grey sweater dress and large hoop earrings. She was given an affectionate shout out by will.i.am DJ, as she entered the party. She was also seen walking hand in hand with Fergie to the DJ booth. She was also seen mingling with mingling with fellow guests like Wilmer Valderrama. For most of the party, held court in a banquette to the left of the stage and appeared to be having a good time.
Rihanna arrived at The Griffin shortly after 11:30 p.m. and stayed nearly two hours. Drake left a few moments before Rihanna and was seen waiting outside the club’s front doors. Both he and Rihanna drove off at the same time, but in separate vehicles.
As far as the entertainment at the party went, Fergie and the Peas performed “Meet Me Halfway,” “Now Generation” and “Electric City” from their new album.
