Is Ri-Ri the model's new BFF?

Rita Ora, 22, might be her ‘wifey’, but it looks like Cara Delevingne, 20, has a new best friend.

The model sent 25-year-old singer Rihanna a virtual cuddle on Instagram to say sorry for not being able to attend the LA leg of her Diamonds World Tour.

This is what a proper good hug should look like! So sad I can’t be there tonight,’ she wrote.

‘Luv you @badgalriri see you soon x.’

Rihanna returned the favour, re-uploading the snap to her account and telling Cara that she loved her.

My homegirl @caradelevingne just sent me this hug! This was so kind of you, I phucking love shit like this!

‘Thanks gra, miss ya, luv ya, see ya soon,’ she posted.

The ‘hug’ come after Rita Ora was spotted snuggling up to Cara‘s ex Harry Styles, 19, at the Groucho Club in London.
