Actor Tom Holland rose to fame following his iconic role as one of Marvel’s teenage superheroes. For hilarious and controversial reasons, the British native has also been linked to famous female musicians, including Nicki Minaj and now Rihanna.


Tom Holland was linked to famed and acclaimed rapper Nicki Minaj following her pregnancy announcement in 2020. Nicki Minaj had shared the good news on Twitter, and soon enough, Holland also began trending – as the “Megatron” rapper’s husband and father of her child.

Fans posted a barrage of hysterical, poorly photoshopped memes of Holland and the “Superbass” artist posing together as a couple, which flooded the social media feed. Even magazine outlets got in on the joke and wished “the couple” all the best on their new journey.


In a 2021 cover issue with Esquire, Holland shared his reaction upon discovering that he was fathering Nicki Minaj’s child. After initially panicking, Holland recalled the relief he felt when he realized he hadn’t even met the “Anaconda” star.

Moreover, the actor felt he wasn’t yet ready to “properly own a dog,” let alone have a child. The “Uncharted” co-star was recently linked to billionaire beauty mogul Rihanna, who shared some exciting news on her Instagram this month.

Rihanna’s fans ask her about Tom Holland

Singer, actress, and billionaire beauty mogul Rihanna will be headlining the Super Bowl 57 Halftime Show in Glendale, Arizona, Rolling Stone reported. Rihanna also took to Instagram to announce a long-awaited public performance since the 2018 Grammy Awards.



Once the bombshell news dropped, Rihanna’s fans took to Twitter, begging the artist to feature Tom Holland in her performance of her classic hit “Umbrella.” Kamryn Staley shared a tweet, suggesting that Rihanna bring out the “Cherry” actor should she decide to perform the song.

At the same time, Demi Kyles also tweeted, insisting that Holland needed to grace the Superbowl stage with the singer, saying:

“It’s a must.”


BruinChick ensured that they used the magic word “please” twice when requesting that Holland does the “Umbrella dance” onstage with Rihanna, tagging both the actor and the musician in their tweet.

Zexi tweeted a hilarious screengrab of one of The Lip Sync Battle show episodes featuring Holland and his lover, Zendaya. Like the others, Zexi expressed her desire to see Holland onstage with Rihanna at the Halftime Show.

TS shared a similar snippet to Zexi’s, saying she had her bags packed and ready should Rihanna need Tom Holland to reprise his performance of the song “Umbrella.”


When Did Tom Holland Perform to Rihanna’s Song?

Several years ago, Tom Holland performed Rihanna’s smash hit “Umbrella” on The Lip Sync Battle, following Zendaya’s lip-sync performance of Bruno Mars’s “24K Magic.” The actress donned a similar maroon two-piece to the one Mars wore in the song’s music video.

Holland started with a smooth dance to 20th-century music in a 1950s tux before ripping it away, shocking the audience with the drag outfit underneath, matching his backup dancers with red lipstick.

Interestingly, Holland almost didn’t appear on The Lip Sync Battle. The actor’s father, Dominic Holland, called his son before his performance, urging him to tell the producers that he’d changed his mind about doing the show.


Holland explained that his dad was worried about the unwanted attention his son may attract, which could potentially ruin his life. Still, fans were blessed to see the friendly neighborhood Spiderman’s dancing skills, and the video clip reached over 133 million views on YouTube.

Will Tom Holland and Rihanna Sing Together?


It’s only been a few days since the news of Rihanna headlining Super Bowl 57 came out, and although fans ran to Twitter with their request for Tom Holland to join the “Wild Thoughts” singer onstage, both Rihanna and the actor are yet to respond.

It is worth noting that Zendaya‘s lover told Esquire how stressful preparing for that Lip sync Battle performance was. The actor called it a “once in a lifetime experience” as he insisted he would never do it again. Still, fans are hopeful.
