There are whispers that fashion designer Rachel Roy has her eye on Amar’e Stoudemire.
Uh oh, Ciara. You might want to keep an eye on your rumored boo. A source told MediaTakeOut.com that Rachel might be trying to turn her professional relationship with the NBA player into a personal one.
Reportedly, Rachel and Amar’e are working on a line of clothing together, and she’s developed a crush on him. “Rachel likes Amar’e, but more importantly, she likes the spotlight,” the insider dished. “She sees the shine that LaLa [Vasquez] gets by being with Carmelo [Anthony]–she wants the same.”
And, apparently, the designer is very determined when it comes to her love life. “If I know Rachel, she won’t stop until she’s got Amar’e,” the source said.
Amar’e, a player for the New York Knicks, and Ciara have been romantically linked for weeks; she’s even shown up to at least one of his games on her own. Amar’e and Ciara met after Ciara attended a Knicks game with her BFF, LaLa Vasquez, who came out to support her hubby, Carmelo Anthony.
Ciara’s currently on tour in Australia, leaving Amar’e with a lot of free time on his hands. So while she’s away he seems to be putting in a little extra time on his fashion line with Rachel, Damon Dash’s ex-wife.
Rachel and Amar’e were spotted leaving the Harry Winston boutique in New York earlier this week. Although there aren’t any indications that the two were shopping for rings, it’s not immediately clear why they went to the high-end jewlery shop.
