It seems that her trip to Brazil for the tail-end of the World Cup may have been equal parts business and pleasure.
According to reports, the Diamonds singer has her eyes firmly fixed on buying a UK football club, after she's set up a soccer academy in her native Barbados.
A source said: 'At first we thought Rihanna's desire to be involved with soccer on a business level would soon blow over. We figured she was still on a high from the World Cup.
'But now it's becoming clear she really is serious. She's talking about setting up a football academy in her native Barbados. Then her big dream is to be involved with a UK club.'
While Rihanna has designs on getting her hands on a British team, the 26-year-old beauty has also reportedly been considering options closer to her Tinsel Town home.
A source told the Daily Star: 'Britain is like a second home to her, although she's also hinted she may do something with an LA team.'
