Believe it or not, Rihanna is seriously bent on making Liverpool Football Club her own 'baby'.
She is set to take her new found love of football to the next level by launching a bid to buy Liverpool Football Club.
The pop queen entered our hearts during the World Cup in Brazil, by brilliantly live-tweeting matches and adding her own killer insight.
And amid reports that she has been looking to invest in an English football club, Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo says Liverpool are the team of choice.
The paper says she has been advised by close friend and Chelsea striker Didier Drogba to make an offer for the Anfield club.
Should the deal come off, Rihanna would be joining the ranks of other celebrity investors like LeBron James who has also involved in the Fenway Sports Group (FSG), the company which owns the Anfield club, which is unlikely to be sold any time soon.
Liverpool are currently owned by John W. Henry's Fenway Sports Group and it's unlikely that they'd want to sell, meaning Anfield may may be spared a Rihanna takeover.
