Rihanna ‘possibly’ dating basketball player?

TMZ caught up with National Basketball Association superstar Matt Barnes and asked him about rumors that they were dating.


What pushed the “Diamonds” singer to lash out on social media was when Barnes told TMZ at the UCLA Softball Stadium Saturday, that he and Rihanna were friends, but it could lead to something more than friendship.

Let this be a lesson to every celebrity/athlete out there.

Dating rumors between Rihanna and Matt came a while ago.

Barnes then goes on to explain that his romance with Rihanna won’t be affected by the fact that he lives in Memphis, noting, “Nah, she’s rich, we’ll be alright”. What might be an issue is Rihanna herself.

Wearing a tight white body suit and white denim mini skirt, Rihanna tried to shield her face under a baseball cap to no avail before being followed into the club by the black and grey-clad Lewis. “There’s no label on them just yet”, the source added.

Rihanna, 27, was spotted getting cosy with Lewis, 30, at the annual Crop Over carnival in Barbados recently, and the pair spent some quality time together. Interesting, because it sure seems like she’s dating Lewis Hamilton.

Both Rihanna and Chris Brown are single at the moment and several of their fans are rooting for them to get back together.
