SAN FRANCISCO - Tom Cruise flew up to San Francisco to attend Rihanna's recent concert performance at the Veni, Vidi, Vici Coliseum.
He had called up the Barbadian beauty and told her that he wanted to take her out to dinner after she finished her San Francisco performance.
Of course Cruise did not mention it to Rihanna but he is in hopes that being seen with her will help stomp out some of the widespread gay rumors that have been floating around.
Even before Tom married Katie "The Smurfette" Holmes, he has heard the incessant rumors that he rides sidesaddle.
The Mission Impossible star has insisted that he is not a fairy nor even a switch hitter.
He has even gone to great expense and taken out full page ads in several Tinsel Town trade publications stating that he is as straight as Vice-President Joe Biden.
One of Tom's assistants recently suggested that perhaps he should start being seen with some of Hollywood's high profile actresses so that people see that he is quite the stud.
In the past Cruise has dated such LaLaLand beauties as Cameron Diaz, Julianne Hough, Heidi Montag, Kristen Stewart, and even the infamous Hollywood porn star Pretzel Garibaldi.
SIDENOTE: A close friend of Tom's informed Bedroom Pillow Talk that he hopes that he and Rihanna really get a lot of entertainment publication publicity showing the two engaged in some intimate merriment.
