Rihanna Not Dating Lakers Star Bynum

Basketball star Andrew Bynum has brushed off rumors that he’s dating singer Rihanna after the pair was spotted out together over the weekend.

The “Umbrella” hitmaker is alleged to have enjoyed a date with Los Angeles Lakers player Bynum following her split from R&B star Chris Brown.

But Bynum has dismissed the claims.

When asked by TMZ.com if he and Rihanna are dating, he offered a simple “No” and insisted there was no budding romance between the duo.
