Are matt rihanna dating

he says the stories about him going on dates with Rihanna are all gossip, but then he says things could be going down the relationship road.

We got Matt out at the UCLA Softball Stadium Saturday when he said he and Ri Ri are just friends, but it could lead to something.

For those keeping score at home: First, Barnes – or "sources" close to the NBA tough guy – told TMZ he'd been on a couple of dates with Rihanna, a story more-or-less backed up by Barnes himself.

This was apparently news to Rih, who punked him on Instagram and said she'd never met the new member of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Barnes felt the need to reply to Rihanna’s claims, writing, “Hahaa wow” next to her post, E! (Rihanna has not replied as of yet.) But just because the “Four Five Seconds” singer doesn’t have a budding romance with Barnes hardly means she’s all alone.

She has been recently spotted with Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton on several occasions in the last few weeks — including on a trip to her home country of Barbados where they were snapped soaking up sun on a yacht and frolicking at the island’s Kadooment Day parade.

Rihanna was not happy with Matt Barnes after the NBA player implied that he and the pop superstar might be an item.

His ex-wife Gloria Govan even reportedly gave her stamp of approval—as long as she got hooked up with concert tickets—so when asked about what's really going on with him and Ri Ri, Barnes told TMZ that they're "just past the crush stage."Hm, Rihanna seems to disagree.#bishwhere #thedevilisaliar #shesnotthatintoyou #shesnotintoyouatall #shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings #defamationofcharacter," she wrote. News that "Karim is fading out and it looks like Rihanna has only one guy on her mind, and that's Lewis [Hamilton]," adding that she is taking it slow and has not put a "label" on them yet.

Hamilton previously dated pop singer Nicole Scherzinger.

Rihanna snatching up your soon-to-be ex-husband is the kinda thing that would piss off most women -- but "Basketball Wives LA" star Gloria Govan says she's cool with Matt Barnes hooking up with Ri Ri. Gloria was outside Pump in West Hollywood, when she seriously encouraged Matt to get things going with Rihanna!
