Rihanna was hit by her boyfriend in 2009. Matt Kemp hit 26 home runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers. According to recent rumors, they're hitting it off together!
A new report says RiRi rang in the New Year in Dubai with her new beau, who is more than ready and willing to help her shed her troubled relationship past.
Hollywood Life cites a source who says Matt Kemp followed Rihanna to Abu Dhabi for a gig in the United Arab Emirates. There, they were seen getting cozy.
“Rihanna and Matt are starting to get serious – he even followed her to Dubai for New Year's,” an insider said. “Rihanna likes him because he’s a gentleman."
"And very sexy too!"
Is Matt Kemp circling the bases with Rihanna?
A sexy gentleman he may be, but we can tell you for a fact they were not in Dubai on New Year's Eve. This is because we know exactly where Rihanna was:
Times Square. On live television, performing with Jay-Z.
Not very good intel from this "source," if Rihanna was seen in the most visible spot on the planet. Unless we're supposed to believe they are in Dubai now.
We're gonna go with a resounding no on whether we buy this. But hey, it makes for fun Rihanna gossip when she's linked to a random pro athlete every so often.
Right, Rashard Lewis?
