In this weeks' A-List Insider: Rihanna gets a new boyfriend; Kim Kardashian splashes the cash on Kanye's birthday; and Apple takes on Tidal and Spotify.

Rihanna dating Karim Benzema

After failed romances with Chris Brown, Drake and Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna may have finally found her Mr Right. According to reports, the Diamonds singer has been dating Real Madrid footballer Karim Benzema.

There's no word on exactly when the couple's alleged romance blossomed but they were first linked to each other during the 2014 Fifa World Cup when the 27-year-old superstar reached out to the football player on Twitter.

Things seem to have escalated because in the last few weeks they have been spotted out to dinner and partying on multiple occasions. He is even said to have treated her to a bouquet of roses.

Although the dating rumours continue to circulate, a source recently claimed that Riri is actually helping the French sports star launch his music career. Apparently he wants to be a rapper.

Kim Kardashian splashes the cash for Kanye's birthday bash

Reality queen Kim Kardashian just might be the wife of the year after pulling out all the stops for her husband Kanye West's 38th birthday.

For the rapper's big day she hired the Staples Center in Los Angeles so he could play basketball with his friends.

When the blindfolded hip hop star arrived at the venue he was surprised by a host of famous faces, including John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen, singer Justin Bieber, rappers Tyga and Pusha T, and his family members Kylie Jenner and Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.

After the big reveal, he changed into the basketball kit provided by his wife, designed with "East" and "West" for both teams.

The icing on the cake was that Kim, who is pregnant with their second child, managed to enlist several NBA players including John Salley and James Hardento to join in the celebrations.

Apple to take on Tidal and Spotify with music streaming service

Apple has launched its revamped music streaming service following the acquisition of Beats in 2014.

The brand unveiled the service to rival the likes of Spotify and Jay Z's Tidal at its annual Worldwide Developers conference (WWDC) in San Francisco.

For $10 (£6) a month users get unlimited streaming from the iTunes music library, access to an always-on live radio station called Beats One headed up by former BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, and Connect, a social network where artists can interact with their fans.

Apple Music will go live later this month in over 100 countries – including the UK – on iOS, Mac and Windows, with an Android app coming this autumn.
