August 17, 2015 GMT An insider reveals that the real reason why the Barbadian singer quickly shut down dating rumors made by Matt is because she doesn't want such rumors to derail her budding relationship with Lewis.
Rihanna was really upset with Matt Barnes who made up a story that the two "just past the crush stage." According to Gossip Cop, the Barbadian beauty quickly shut down the dating rumors because she didn't want such "bulls**t" rumors to ruin her budding relationship with Lew..
As she posted a screenshot of Barnes’ TMZ interview on Instagram stating,“#bishwhere#shesnotthatintoyou#thedevilisaliar#shesnotintoyouatall#thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings#shesneverevenmetyou#defamationofcharacter.”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.
Posting a screengrab of Matt's interview with TMZ, Rihanna wrote on Instagram: ''#bishwhere #thedevilisaliar #shesnotthatintoyou #shesnotintoyouatall #shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings #defamationofcharacter (sic)''Matt, 35, spoke out at the weekend and claimed he felt he had a future with the 'Diamonds' hitmaker.
He said: ''Rihanna's my friend right now, so we'll see where it goes.''Further pressed if he thinks they have a future, he added: ''Yeah, possibly.''It looks as though Matt is quite smitten with the 'Four Five Seconds' hitmaker as he admitted their brewing relationship has ''passed the crush stage''.
Seriously, politicians have nothing on Barnes’ evasive, answer-free rhetoric skills, which he displayed in a recent visit to .
