You would think Matt Barnes would have learned a lesson from JR Smith, but evidently the Memphis Grizzlies star appreciates learning life lessons the hard way. This particular lesson involves not bragging to paparazzi about dating Rihanna, especially when she’s never even met you.
Matt Barnes is now a punchline after he told TMZ cameras this past weekend that he was more than friends with the Barbadian beauty. “Rihanna is my friend right now, so we’ll see where it goes. It just passed the crush stage a little bit,” he explained, confirming what he said were “rumors” about the two.
What’s surprising about the revelation is NO ONE in the world was even aware of the rumor besides Barnes. Rihanna, who is quick to dead false gossip, took to Instagram to issue this captioned response to Barnes:
This isn’t the first time Rihanna has put an NBA player on blast. A few years ago, she made an example out of then New York Knicks star JR Smith who some believed she was dating.
“F*ck you and your wack team!! Nobody don’t want that desert thirsty n*gga. He f*cking up cause his a** be hungover from clubbing every night during the playoffs!! So your issue ain’t me,”
she fired off in an Instagram comment.
As for who Rihanna IS actually dating, some are speculating she’s locked onto Lewis Hamilton. The two were spotted together clubbing together in NY earlier this month and partying in Barbados.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
