It’s been more than 10 years since Breaking Bad premiered on our TV screens. Over its five-season run, the acclaimed AMC drama racked up numerous awards for acting, writing, and more. And somewhere in there, Rihanna herself started watching and became a huge fan, according to series star Aaron Paul, who played the unforgettable (and foul-mouthed) Jesse Pinkman.
Just the other night, Paul made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and told the story of his multiple run-ins with the “We Found Love” singer. And it all starts with…rapper Drake, apparently.
As Paul tells it, he seemingly spends a lot of time in parking garages getting rushed by his celebrity fans. He first randomly encountered Drake in Paris, and their meeting went something like this:
Drake told Paul he had persuaded Rihanna to start watching the show, too.
And here’s where the story gets even better.
Having Drake tell you he’s a fan would probably be enough to make anyone feel psyched. But then Aaron Paul met Rihanna — in another parking situation.
We bet Paul was all like this after his chance encounter with Rihanna:
Some time later, Rihanna and Paul saw each other again at a Super Bowl Party — where RiRi allegedly serenaded him.

Starring in a hugely successful TV show has its perks, but the biggest one probably has to be when Robyn Fenty loves you.
