"90210" Star Tristan Wilds Cozies Up to Rihanna

Rihanna could use a sweet guy in her life, which is why we were happy to hear that a romance is potentially brewing between the “So Hard” singer and half-Dominican actor Tristan Wilds, best known for his current role on 90210 and a former one on HBO’s The Wire. The NY Daily News reports, Tristan, 20, showed up as an unexpected guest at a party Rihanna, 21, held over the weekend at her L.A. home, where she was saying goodbye to close friends before leaving for a set of shows in London.

"No one knew why Tristan was there initially, because it was not an industry party—it was very intimate," a party guest told the NY Daily News. "But everyone quickly realized they weren't meeting for the first time, because they were openly affectionate for everyone to see."

The source added, “they hit it off the moment they laid eyes on each other. He's a real gentleman. She likes him a lot, and it shows. From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up." The lovebirds apparently plan to keep in touch digitally until their work schedules allow them to be together again.

The only disturbing thing about this connection is Tristan's resemblance to Chris Brown. Are we the only ones who see that? Otherwise, we're hoping things pan out for the young stars.
