We hope you have your mugs ready because Matt Barnes is spilling all the tea. The NBA star let his emotions get the best of him last night, going on an epic Instagram rant slamming Rihanna and his former teammate, Derek Fisher.
Earlier this year, Barnes confessed to a TMZ cameraman that he and Rihanna had been secretly hooking up. Rihanna vehemently denied the claims, saying she hadn’t even met Barnes before let alone slept with him. Sources close to the situation told HipHollywood at the time that Barnes was telling the truth, and Rihanna’s denial stemmed from being upset with the hoop star putting her business out there. Barnes addressed the entire controversy in last night’s rant, writing of Rihanna that he was “lied on by a pop star who’s lucky I stuck to the script and didn’t expose her lying a**. Funny thing about texts and pics is they DON’T LIE! I guess they call that getting played”
Barnes also blasted his former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Derek Fisher for sleeping his wife Gloria Govan behind his back, saying, “stuck in the ‘triangle offense’ with my ex and snitch, I mean former teammate and friend who went behind my back, messed with my ex, got caught, got dealt with for being a snake, then ran and told the police and NBA instead of taken that ass whoopin like a man … Guess cause I didn’t SNITCH, I get a two game suspension by the league. ‘They call that LIFE.’
Barnes even commented on being traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Memphis Grizzles, admitting he and Clippers head coach Doc Rivers didn’t get along. “I didn’t see eye to eye with my head coach,” he confessed. So much tea, it’s hard to know when to put the cup down.
