Matt Kemp to Rihanna: I Love (Being Around) You

by at . Comments

Man. Hitting .299 with seven homers, 20 RBIs and one pop star girlfriend, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is having a helluva spring.

The baseball star finally 'fessed up about his newfound romance at the State Farm DDF Bowling Extravaganza at L.A.'s Lucky Strike Lanes, too.

When asked if he and Rihanna were official, Kemp said, "Yeah! That's my girl!"

He added: "She's just a fun person. I love to be around her."

Aww. Here's a cute photo of Matt Kemp and Rihanna ...

Rihanna and Matt Kemp earlier this year.

Right now, the pair has to contend with long-distance love, as Rihanna is currently on her world tour: "She's definitely not gonna be here for a little while."

"Hopefully when she gets back she'll be at a couple [more] games," Kemp said.

Perhaps that's for the best, as Matt's been called out by the Dodgers' brass for being lazy in the field and underachieving. He doesn't need more distractions.

Just being with RiRi may be enough to have Kemp's mind elsewhere, though. "She's definitely a great person in my life," he said. "I'm so happy I'm with her."

Sniff. Definitely a step up from Chris Brown ... or 20.
