This week we saw unimpressed pop star Rihanna respond to Matt Barnes‘ insinuating they may be dating, via a series of Instagram hashtags.

Talk about keeping up with the times, even the once ever so popular tweet is now outdated.


Ain’t no phone call bih, ain’t no text, ain’t no tweet, ain’t no DM bih, just hashtags bih!


Ok, all jokes aside, the basketball player only saw the funny side for so long. This is until he decided he wanted to let it be known that he is too old to be playing the lying game.


Here is how it all unfolded…


Matt Barnes speaks with TMZ cameraman on rumors he and the Bajan bad gal may have a thing going on.






This of course was a big shock after Rihanna has been seen around town with F1 driver Lewis Hamilton.


See her brutal response below.








It’s clear to see the ‘We Found Love‘ singer was not here for her supposed soon to be boyfriends claim that they are possibly soon to be more than just friends.


It’s safe to say neither was her friend Leeandra who found herself in her in Badgal Rih Rih’s comments section, along with Matt Barnes.

Well the soon to be ex-husband of Gloria Govan did not like the shade thrown…who would?! The Memphis Grizzlies player sat down with Jim Rome where he discussed the TMZ video.


Although not taking back his comments, the NBA player felt he probably would have been better off not saying anything at all even though he was telling the truth.



“You live and you learn. When you’re in a situation like this and, you know, you just learn. You just got to keep stuff to yourself obviously.”

“But the way I’m putting it right now, I’m too grown to lie, you know what I mean. It is what it is, I’m going to let this blow by like everything else blows by.”

“I just smiled. I just smiled, that’s it. “What can you do? At the end of the day we’re all grown-ups. Like I said I’m too grown to be lying about stuff but life is life. You live and you learn.”



One thing is for sure, someone is telling fibs. Could it be Rihanna, hoping to hide the truth from rumored boo Lewis Hamilton?


There’s no denying that she is one beautiful woman, so we understand why Matt would want to date her.


But would he go as far to say that there may be a future with someone he has never actually met?




Who do you believe?
