Is Rihanna Dating Matt Barnes? ‘Diamonds’ Singer Slams Barnes Publicly

Rihanna is said to be dating Matt Barne despite being linked to Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton. The NBA player himself broke the news and seems to be very happy hinting towards their romantic angle. RiRi, on the other hand, is very sure that she is not aware of this piece of information. Read on to find out more about the scoop.

According to Memphis Grizzlies player, “We are my friend right now but we’ll see where it goes.” When questioned about taking things to a more romantic stage, he mentioned, “Yeah, possibly. I think it just passed the crush stage a little bit” as stated by IB Times.

Barnes was recently solicited by Memphis Grizzlies in June 2015 from Los Angeles Clippers, which fans immediately thought was an indication of a long distance relationship with the singer. But the NBA player impudently replied, “Nah, she’s rich. We’ll be all right.”

Apparently, the whole story turned upside down as the Barbadian singer has discarded Barnes’ claims as nothing but true. The “FourFiveSeconds” singer stated that they have never even met and thrashed him publicly in an awfully embarrassing manner. As she posted a screenshot of Barnes’  TMZ interview on Instagram stating,


However, it seems as if Barnes fabricated the link up rumor as the “Bitch Better Have My Money” singer has already scrapped the whole tale. The NBA player is going through a divorce with Gloria Govan, reality star of “Basketball Wives: Los Angeles.” The couple separated last year in October and has twin boys together.

The eight time-Grammy Award winner is said to be dating Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton and not Matt Barnes. The 27-year-old singer was photographed with Hamilton several times recently at her home town Barbados while participating in Kadooment Day Parade. They were seen together recently at one of the nightclubs in New York, as reported by Gossip Cop.
