That’s a nice slam dunk!

Rihanna welcomed basketball star Magic Johnson aboard her yacht that was anchored just off St Tropez in the south of France.

She’s been partying up a storm in the sea with her female friends having a great time on board a luxury yacht she is renting and today Rihanna invited the 52 year-old former Laker basketball star Magic Johnson to join in the festivities.

Magic, real name Earvin Johnson, clearly enjoyed the day and tweeted: ‘We had a great time hanging with @Rihanna & her friends on her yacht.’

Rihanna was seen laughing throughout the day and she and her gang of mates were seen basking in the sunshine reclining on loungers as they sipped on bottled beers.

And as usual, nobody could miss the party since RiRi shared snaps of all the fun in the sun with her millions of social media followers!

Whilst spending some time with her friends aboard the luxury superyacht Latitude she has also been visiting various destinations in the Mediterranean going ashore to visit nightclubs and restaurants too.

The Where Have You Been singer and her group of girlfriends have been touring Italy as well, stopping off in Sardinia and Capri before Positano and never one to be shy or not state her opinion – Rihanna told fans on Twitter that the nightclub she attended in Capri wasn’t up to much and the music wasn’t to her liking.

She tweeted: ‘Music was a lil rough in the club lastnight! Solution: walk off on the dance floor.’ Say it how it is Riri!

The luxury yacht named Latitude that Riri has rented for this vacation has a Jacuzzi, elevator, gym and various water toys on board including jet-skis which Rihanna, by the looks of things, is a dab hand at! It was built in 2008 by the Italian shipyard Benetti – and clearly has done its job as Rihanna has come back for more!

The boat can sleep up to 12 people alongside 15 crew members and if you happen to be feeling flush, the luxury yacht could be yours to charter from approximately $300,000 per week!

You might have to dig deep but if these pictures are anything to go by, it would be worth every cent!
