Alright, everyone STOP. We need to figure this out. Leonardo DiCaprio, fresh off some alleged bear sex, was reportedly spotted in a Paris nightclub early Sunday morning with and/or briefly next to and/or in the vicinity of Rihanna. The well-versed will recall that Leo and Rih were rumored to be having a fling almost a year ago—they were seen kissing once, there was gossip that Rihanna thought Leo was too fat—so the fact that their auras intertwined in the City of Lights is pretty exciting stuff.
But here's where it gets dicey. There seems to be some confusion around what actually occurred at this fateful Parisian nightclub. Some say Leo and Rihanna made out and that there's photo evidence of it. Others are like, "Nah, son." Here's a sampling of some gossip headlines:
Very friendly exes! Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio seen 'kissing' while both enjoying night out in same Parisian nightclub (Daily Mail)
LEONARDO DICAPRIO & RIHANNA Oui in Paris Club, But ... WE ARE NOT KISSING OR BANGING (TMZ)

SMH, gossip streets need to get on the same page. So what really happened? Well, let's consult Us Weekly and the aforementioned TMZ, two outlets with decent reputations that would totally benefit from saying that Leo and Rihanna were boning in the middle of a club, but didn't anyways.
Per Us: "Leo was at the club for a private party and Rihanna came with Cara Delevingne separately. Rihanna went over to Leo to say ‘hi,’ congratulate him and give him a kiss on the cheek. They chatted for a few minutes." I like to think Rihanna "congratulated" Leo not for his Oscar nomination, but for simply being Leonardo DiCaprio, but that's neither here nor there.
And what about those "photos," you ask, the ones that show the two getting it on? TMZ claims they don't exist. They also claim that Leo's people are trying to block the sale of the photos regardless though, which makes you think: Why would they do that if nothing crazy happened? That, my friends, is a question for another day.
You may now resume your Tuesday.
