NBA player Matt Barnes Thinks He’s Dating Rihanna. Rihanna Thinks He’s Delusional.

August 17, 2015

TMZ reported that former LA Clipper, soon to be Memphis Grizzly player Matt Barnes had gone on two dates with superstar Rihanna.

And a few days later Matt gives an interview to TMZ where he basically says he and Rihanna are an item, saying there’s “yeah, possibly” a future between them, and remarking about the budding (and imaginary) romance “I think it just passed the crush stage.” When asked directly if he and Rihanna are dating, he says, “Um, Rihanna’s my friend right now…we’ll see where it goes.” When quizzed about whether his upcoming move to Memphis might put a crimp in the relationship, Barnes answers, “Nah, she’s rich.” As though they’ve stayed up talking all night, snuggling in their PJs, and gabbing about how they can work out the kinks in their long distance relationship.

Here he is, sticking his foot in his mouth:

Once this aired, Rihanna took to Instagram to call Barnes out with a stunning hashtag takedown. According to the divine Miss R, she’s never actually met Barnes. And she thinks he’s the devil.

Barnes was arrested on domestic violence charges back in 2010, and again on unrelated charges in 2012, while making national news for his use of gay slurs, so there’s yet another reason Rihanna is smart to steer clear.

I’ll be chatting about Rihanna and Barnes tonight on TalkSport radio (UK) at 9:30 pm EST. Listen live here:
