Apparently it's not just boys who are welcome under Rihanna's umbrella.
"I'm on my first date in almost 2 yearz," the 24-year-old singer tweeted late Thursday night, prior to revealing her date was with a gal pal named Melissa Forde — and RadarOnline.com has photos of the two holding hands.
The duo painted Los Angeles red, holding hands as they grabbed dinner at Malibu's Giorgio Baldi before hitting up Hollywood's famed Roxbury nightclub. The We Found Love singer looked stunning in a long white dress, and Melissa was no slouch either, clad in a sexy get-up that revealed a pair of mile-long legs.
The Caribbean queen continued tweeting through the night, dropping some hints her relationship with Forde is anything but platonic.
"Beautiful is great, submissive is even better. Bawse b***h who's submissive yet the captain of the ship n HONEST...#priceless #marryME," she wrote, adding, "But she bad... So maybe she won't.... But s**t, then again maybe she will."
The singer was having a good time, uploading photos to her social media account of her table at the club covered in bottles of booze — and continued to tweet well into the early morning hours of Friday.
Rihanna posted a photo of her and Forde with the caption, "#datenight my lover for the night."
More on Forde: She's got more than 11,000 Twitter followers, one of whom is Rihanna's ex Chris Brown. There's a history of speculation the two have been lovers, as they have matching tattoos that read, "never a failure, always a lesson.”
Boys or girls, RiRi's love life has been the subject of endless tabloid speculation in the wake of her violent split with Brown in 2009, in which the Forever singer famously beat her to a pulp.
Recently, she's been tied to Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher and Brown, who she collaborated with on a pair of singles earlier this year.
