Joel Embiid's infatuation with Rihanna goes way back to the Summer of 2014 when he began tweeting at Ri Ri, asking her out on dates and the like.

It's been nearly three years since Embiid first started pursuing her but he isn't giving up on the process just yet, and TMZ is here to help facilitate this relationship.

The cameras caught up with Embiid last night in Los Angeles and the injured 7-footer took the opportunity to tell Rihanna he loves her and that she should hit him up.

Who said romance was dead?
