Clap back queen Rihanna is going in on NBA star Matt Barnes on IG for telling TMZ Sports that he might be dating her.
For weeks now Rihanna and Barnes have been rumored to be getting close with one site reported that they were spotted on a diner date.
On Saturday a TMZ Sports paparazzo caught up with the basketball star at a softball game at UCLA where he was asked about Rihanna.
“Rihanna is my friend right now so we will see where it goes,” Barnes said while confirming that there is a possible future for the two. “I think it just past the crush stage a little bit.”
That statement did not sit well with Rihanna who went on Instagram on Sunday to blast Matt.
She posted a screenshot from the interview along with a series of hashtags saying that he was lying and that she never met him.
“#bishwhere #thedevilisaliar #shesnotthatintoyou #shesnotintoyouatall #shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings #defamationofcharacter”
Matt Barnes has since commented under the photo saying, “Hahaaa wow.”
Rihanna is rumored to be dating Formula One race car champion Lewis Hamilton. The pair were spotted on two dates last week in New York City and were even in Barbados a few weeks ago for carnival.
Perhaps Matt Barnes will think twice next time before he all but confirmed that there is a relationship brewing with Rihanna who is the hottest pop star on the planet.
Barnes was married to former Basketball Wives Gloria Govan. The former couple split last year following cheating allegation. They got married in 2012 and has two kids.
Rihanna Navy is now roasting the ball player on social media over the interview.
