Emma Watson 'looking for NYC home'

Emma Watson is reportedly house hunting in New York.

The Harry Potter star is looking for an apartment in the Upper East Side, near Central Park, sources told the New York Post.

The actress is currently studying at Oxford University in England but it is understood she would like to be based in New York. She is on secondment to Oxford at the moment and is expected to return to Brown in Rhode Island before long.

Emma, who is dating fellow Oxford student Will Adamowicz, is said to be starring in an upcoming movie with Harry Potter director David Yates.

She will reportedly star in Your Voice in My Head about a British journalist based in New York.

As the British star searches for a home in the American city, Barbados singer Rihanna is believed to be looking for a home on Emma's turf.

The singer is rumoured to be moving to London from May to July while filming a new TV series.

"Rihanna is coming back to Britain to shoot her Sky Living reality show and has decided to settle down a bit while she's over," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

"Although there may be occasional trips away she'll be based in London. Rihanna has instructed her team to find a mansion in or around the capital."

The insider adds she had considered buying property in east London but is now looking elsewhere as she wants gates to keep away fans and paparazzi. Rihanna has so far filmed two episodes of the fashion series, which also stars Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts.

"Since she started shooting the Sky programme - a search for new fashion designers - she's got really into it and wants to commit fully," a source said.

"And the crew behind the show have been surprised at the effort she's putting in."

The show will see contestants challenged to create outfits for a number of musicians and celebrities. The final challenge includes designing a costume for Rihanna to wear during her Wireless performance in Hyde Park in July.

"I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show," Rihanna told Sky News.
