Rihanna can’t seem to get enough of men on our side of the Pond. The latest person to charm the princess of pop is apparently a 17-year-old Welsh trainee stock broker. Or so he claims.

The boy in question, James Bufton, has apparently been showing off about bagging a date with the Bajan superstar by chatting her up at an exclusive VIP party after her recent O2 arena show. He’s even claimed that Ri-Ri has invited him to New York for a date and has released a press statement saying he has the singer’s phone number. How modest of you James.

On his meeting with Rihanna he said:

She’s a really lovely girl, really down to earth, normal and fun. Getting to meet her after the gig was a dream come true and we talked about everything under the sun.

We chatted about how the tour is going, her interests, her songs and what she’s planning on doing next. We even talked about meeting up again in New York – we’re going to keep in touch.

Bless him.

Keen to play hard to get, James left the party early instead of staying to continue his ‘deep and meaningful’ bonding session, as he had work the next day. But not before getting a picture with Rihanna resting her head on his shoulder. Is it just us or does this guy look a lot older than seventeen?

The We Found Love star was also spotted in a pic with footballer Jermaine Defoe that night. A true man eater in the making.

What do you guys think of her latest potential toy boy? Or could he just be gassed?
