Contrary to gossip reports, Rihanna is not dating basketball player Matt Barnes.
When asked about the status of his relationship with Rihanna, Barnes reveals, “Umm, Rihanna is my friend right now, so, we’ll see where it goes”.
Rihanna posted a screengrab of Matt from an interview video with TMZ where he said they “past the crush stage”.
A couple of nights earlier, RiRi was seen hitting up the same club as her rumored beau Lewis Hamilton. Is Matt Barnes lying or does Rihanna have a foggy memory? He also reportedly said that it does not matter if he “plays for Memphis, because she has a jet”. In fact, she doesn’t even know who he is.
In June, Rihanna was linked to football player Karim Benzema, but a source recently told E!
While Rihanna is no stranger to calling out false rumors, the songstress continues to remain mum regarding the news of her romance with Lewis Hamilton. “There’s no label on them just yet”, the source added.
Both Rihanna and Chris Brown are single at the moment and several of their fans are rooting for them to get back together. The “Diamonds” hitmaker and Formula One racing supremo arrived within minutes of each other on August 14 night at The Griffin nightclub, reported Entertainment Weekly.
