Rihanna Destroys Matt Barnes With Ruthless Instagram Shade
Rihanna has to deal with her fair share of idiots who think they can date her because they are kind of famous, and Matt Barnes is the latest delusional athlete to try to awkwardly instigate a relationship with one of the most desired women on the planet. Can someone please do everyone in the NBA a favor and send out a memo with the subject line "I can promise you that Rihanna isn't interested so please stop embarrassing yourselves?" cc: Kristaps Porzingis, J.R.

She may not have the greatest track record when it comes to choosing her suitors, but I think the world can agree that Matt Barnes is just plain out of the question. Yet for reasons we may never know, he came to the bat-shit crazy conclusion that they are friends and "seeing where things go."
When asked by TMZ whether he and Rihanna were dating, he pulled the lamest attention-whoring move ever by trying to insinuate that they were exploring the possibility.
"Rihanna's my friend right now so um we'll see where it goes..."
He was then asked if he thinks there is possibly a future and he responded "Yeah, possibly. Possibly."
"I think it just passed the crush stage, a little bit." Barnes said.
He was also asked about whether distance would be an issue after Barnes signed with the Memphis Grizzlies, with Barnes quipping "Nah, she's rich, we'll be all right.
Finally the interviewer put him on the spot by asking about where they went on their first date.
"All that is rumors. All that is speculation," he said. "We're friends, and we'll see where it goes from there."
I mean, come on dude. You know that we know that you are not dating Rihanna; nor will you ever. Luckily Rihanna cleared it up on Instagram for anyone who may have had any inexplicable lingering belief in Barnes' fictional relationship with her.
Rihanna's picture shows a screen shot of the TMZ interview with a bunch of captions that just throw expert-level shade. Her #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings and #defamationofcharacter hashtags have to be the greatest response to dating rumors that have ever graced the internet.

Just because she's a celebrity doesn't mean it's cool to just make shit up about her and tell the national media about it. With rumors flying around that she just ended a short-lived fling with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema to strike up a romance with Formula One Driver Lewis Hamilton, she definitely doesn't have time to be fending off questions about some washed up NBA player.
Let. RiRi. Live.
