Matt Barnes was spotted out on a few dates with Rihanna. No one knew what was really going on between the two, but on Sunday, TMZ caught up with the Grizzlies forward at a celebrity basketball game to get that scoop on their relationship.
Barnes seemed to be modest at first, but he went on to say that there is a future between him and Rihanna. He then added that he’s not worried about being a thousand miles away from the singer because “she’s rich.” “Rihanna’s my friend right now, so we’ll see where it goes,” Barnes said. “I think it just passed the crush stage a little bit. Just a little bit, though.”
Apparently Rihanna has never met Barnes, but her response to his allegations was pretty epic by calling him out on Instagram with hashtags like “#thedevilisaliar” and “#defamationofcharacter.”
Barnes response to this was “Hahaaa wow,” but who knows what was really going on between them. Either way, it looks like Matt messed up his chances.
