Rihanna is still living the good life in Hawaii, following her friend Jenn Rosales “420” wedding earlier in the week. Yesterday’s agenda consisted of some fun out on the ocean for a little fishing. The catch? They were on the hunt for dinner.

Looks like Rih came out victorious for the catch of the day. Meet her dinner…Mr. Mahi. Ha!

Rih and co. got their dinner “fresh off the boat". Nothing like fresh sushi straight from the sea.

And, of course, there's always time for "us-ies" with her bestie Melissa Forde.

LOVE & BASKETBALL: OKC Baller Russell Westbrook & Fiancée Nina Earl Dine In L.A. + Drake CHEERS On The Toronto Raptors During Playoffs

 photo flannel2.jpg

We’ve got love and basketball wrapped into one with shots of OKC player Russell Westbrook and his fiancée Nina Earl spotted on a cutesy dinner date. Meanwhile, Drake was busy cheering on his beloved Toronto Raptors in the last playoff game. Peep their candids inside….

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook and his fiancée Nina Earl made it a date night in L.A. last night. Since the Thunder didn't make it to the playoffs this year, Russell has a little free time on his hands to wine and dine with his soon-to-be wife.

 photo flannel1.jpg

Although he didn't make the playoffs, he still has something to celebrate. He holds the top spot as the NBA Scoring Leader for the 2014-2015 season, so we're sure the two had a few toasts to that. Congrats!

On the basketball court....

Drake flew into D.C. to cheer on his beloved Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals of the NBA playoffs against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center.

But, (as we all know) it was only a matter of time before Drizzy hopped up to cheer on his favorite NBA squad.

But, then....

 photo flannel6.jpg

The Raptors were defeated by the Wizards, 99 – 106. Sorry Drizzy. THe Wizards are leading the series, 3-0.
