Rihanna might have found her athlete in Jets WR Braylon Edwards. According to a Page Six Report:
Rihanna dining early Thursday night at Philippe Chow, followed by Braylon Edwards separately. Later in the evening, there was a dinner party there for Nicki Minaj and Birdman. Juelz Santana & DJ Khaled also dined in another room.
It sounds like Rihanna had a change of heart about Braylon or she just knows who he is now:
Rihanna doesn’t take bubbly from strangers. While hanging out with a gaggle of assistants and singer James Blount at a party thrown by Vegas nightclub The Bank at Wonderland in LA, the songstress was sent a $10,000 bottle of Champagne by Jets receiver Braylon Edwards and a handful of his teammates, who were at a nearby table. But according to a partygoer, “She didn’t know who they were, so she sent it back.” Edwards’ rep says Braylon later introduced himself and all was well.
I guess that ground work he put in back in 2009 might be paying off for him now. Thats a long time to wait though, so whoever said patience is virtue wasn’t messing around. Let’s just hope the Jets have patience because Braylon’s roster spot might be in jeopardy.
