Ri-Ri and Ashton are both single and ready for romance

Rihanna and Demi Moore‘s ex Ashton Kutcher have been secretly meeting up.

Ri-Ri, 24, got chatting with Two and a Half Men star Ashton, 34, at a party before Christmas and found his devotion to Kabbalah fascinating.

Rihanna, who is recording in LA, is reported to have dropped in to see Ashton around midnight on Thursday and left at 4am.

‘The flirting began as soon as Rihanna and Ashton met and swapped numbers. That moved on to texts and arranging to meet. They snuck off to a Santa Monica hotel a few weeks ago,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘They are two single people having a fling.’

Rihanna plays a weapons expert in her debut film Battleship and has been learning how to handle firearms.

Rihanna is now definitely someone you won’t want to get on the wrong side of,’ a source tells The People.

‘She has put everything into it. She jokes that she is now the toughest girl in pop – and is most definitely not to be messed with.’
