Rihanna’s a literal queen, from the music industry to the fashion & makeup industry, queen Riri rules it all. And without a doubt, she rules over all our hearts too. Let’s be honest; a majority of us have a crush and seem totally in love with her.
However, it seems as if she has her heart set on someone else (and someone famous). It’s not a secret that Rihanna appears as a very big fan of the legendary basketball star, LeBron James. She’s made her fan-love for him quite clear throughout the years. Throwback to when Riri called him “THE KING” and how can we get forget when she called him ‘Bae.’
Let’s take a trip down the old road and look back at some of the many times, Riri expressed her love for the real MVP.
Rihanna showing her support on her social media
Besides, we can’t -not- call this particular moment iconic. And if you’re confused about what we’re talking about, don’t worry. It’s none other than the time Rihanna paid tribute to LeBron James and the Larry O’Brien Trophy on her Instagram.
The singer posted a picture of LeBron hugging the trophy and wrote ‘THE KING’ in the caption. Meanwhile, on June 22, 2012, Rihanna expressed her love for the basketball player on Twitter. Furthermore, she congratulated him for winning the Finals back in the year. Like many other fans, Ri, too, couldn’t hold back her excitement.
Congrats to Lebron on his first ring! Well deserved HEAT!!!!

Queen Riri’s biggest superfan move
Moreover, Rihanna left us all speechless after Cleveland’s Game 2 victory over the Toronto Raptors in 2016. Many fans showed their support with tweets and small celebrations.
However, Rihanna had something else in mind to prove she’s indeed LeBron’s superfan. While tanning under the sun, Rihanna applied her sunscreen in the form of the number 23. We all know that’s James’ jersey number. Not only that, but she also tagged him in the Instagram post! We have to applaud the dedication.
Nevertheless, the Fenty founder didn’t shy away from showing all the support for LeBron James before the 2016 finals. Rihanna supported the player or, as she said, her ‘bae’ online on Instagram. Besides, she shared some pictures of James to her feed.
While one picture shows his giving a sarcastic look to his opponent, the other shows him holding not one but TWO trophies. And how can we not mention his charming smile which steals everyone’s hearts? Well, Rihanna has already claimed the title of LeBron James’ superfan’.
