Barbadian singer/actress Rihanna and rumoured boyfriend Real Madrid footballer Karim Benzema are getting serious about each other.

According to a report in Life & Style, the 27-year-old FourFiveSeconds hitmaker introduced Benzema to her family.

"Rihanna didn't waste any time introducing Karim to her nearest and dearest," a source said. "She flew Karim and some of his soccer teammates to LA and then flew her family from Barbados for a big gathering!"

Adding on, Rihanna and Benzema's relatives stayed at the Andaz Hotel and the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood.

"They had a blast just relaxing and partying together with everyone," the insider added.

Chris Brown's former girlfriend and the father-of-one were first linked around the time of the 2014 Fifa World Cup tournament.

Benzema responded to one of Rihanna's World Cup tweets saying: "@rihanna No pain no gain, thanks for the support!"

Recently, the two were spotted together enjoying a night at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.

Meanwhile, during a recent interview with V magazine, Rihanna revealed she is concentrating on her career.

"I didn't actually take time off," she told the publication. "The past two years are the hardest I've ever worked. I've been working on two albums, an animated film, shooting for multiple magazines, designing for Puma and Stance, a new line of fragrances, a summer tour, I launched my first annual Diamond Ball at the end of last year, and I've also been developing several projects to be revealed in the near future."
