Friends of Rihanna insist that she is not in a relationship with anyone as she is concentrating on her career
Rihanna is not dating anyone.
The 'Umbrella' singer has been linked with a series of handsome famous men, including rapper Kanye West and Aubrey Graham, since splitting from Chris Brown - who is accused of assaulting her in February - but is happy to concentrate on her career for the moment.
A source said: "Rihanna needs the focus to be on her talents right now, not the bumps in her personal life. She doesn't want anything else to overshadow her career.
"Kanye is all over Rihanna's album - not all over Rihanna. She's feeling Aubrey but wants to take things slow. Right now they're just chilling."
Meanwhile, Rihanna is currently taking acting lessons ahead of her first film role while working on new music in New York.
The source added: "Rihanna will start filming 'Personal Protection' later this year. She's not ready, acting wise, yet, so she's meeting with a coach."
Additional casting for the film will reportedly be announced after Rihanna, 21, has grasped the basics of acting.
Chris - who friends say is "being a player" and not dating anyone exclusively - is also preparing for a new untitled movie role.
A pal of the 'Run It' star told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Chris plays a homeless character. It's a real rags-to-riches story and should be good for his image."
