Matt Barnes is gonna need some ice for the sick burn singer Rihanna delivered on Instagram.
The Memphis Grizzlies player was the subject of a recent TMZ Sports video, in which he’s seen speaking to a reporter and implying that he and Rihanna are friends that are “past the crush stage” and he’s waiting to see where things go.
As fun as it would’ve been to imagine two celebrities with great affinities for tattoos dating, Barnes committed the ultimate foul: He totally made their relationship up.
He put on quite a show, but Rihanna let the world know the two are more like complete strangers, rather than friends with romantic possibilities.
Lesson learned fellas, don’t try and talk a big game or else you’ll get shut down.
