Memphis star Matt Barnes probably wishes he could take back an interview he did with TMZ.

For the past couple of weeks, rumors have been floating around that Rihanna and Barnes were dating. So TMZ Sports caught up with Barnes in a parking lot somewhere and asked him if the rumors were true.

Barnes replied that he and Rihanna were “friends” and that things between them have passed the “crush stage.” He even went so far as to suggest that they ‘possibly’ have a future together.

But there was just one problem with Barnes’ comments–they are not true. Well, that according to Rihanna. She claims she has never even met Barnes. RiRi decided to slam the NBA star hashtag style on Instagram. Check it out below.


Ouch! Rihanna is actually rumored to be dating Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. They have been spotted on several occasions in New York.
