First Leo, now RiRi – the celebs just can’t stay away from DXB at the moment…

We had Leonardo DiCaprio in town last week – while here he toured Sustainable City, ate #SaltBae’s steak at Nusr-Et and dined at La Mome – and we can now confirm that Rihanna (who is firm friends with Leo) was in town this weekend.

How do we know this? Well, yesterday, Jamaican-New York restaurant Miss Lily’s DXB posted a photo on their official account of Rihanna taking a selfie with a fan. The snap was taken in the Sheraton Grand Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, which is the hotel Miss Lily’s is in. The restaurant has since confirmed to What’s On that Rihanna was there, but won’t give away any more details.

This is legit’ the hotel’s lobby too – we’ve seen that mashrabiya design cutout wall with our own two eyes.

Rihanna went full stealth mode while in Dubai, as we haven’t seen any other snaps shared of her time here.

Here’s where she hung out – Miss Lily’s:

This isn’t her first visit to the UAE – Rihanna was in the capital in 2013 for a gig during her Diamond tour, and she visited the Grand Mosque while she was here (she was reportedly asked to leave due to not getting permission for a photoshoot):


She also performed at the Yasalam After Race Concert in Abu Dhabi last November:
