Rihanna Takes Down Basketball Player Matt Barnes For Pretending They're Dating

"#shesnotintoyouatall"

In case people haven't learned this lesson by now, let us repeat it once again: don't f*** with Rihanna.

Clearly, basketball player Matt Barnes missed that memo, because he decided to make the very stupid decision to incur the wrath of Rihanna, in the weirdest way. Speaking to TMZ, Barnes decided he would get chatty about rumours that he'd been going on dates with Rihanna herself. Bad idea from the get-go, given that Rihanna tends to keep relationship stuff on the downlow.

"Rihanna is my friend right now so we'll see where it goes," he told TMZ, before responding to the idea of a romantic future with: "possibly, possibly. I think it's just past the crush stage. Just a little bit though." When the reporter asked him about the idea of doing long distance, he put his foot in his mouth again, replying: "She's rich. We'll be alright."

He then backtracks a bit, saying that their reported dates are all "rumours and speculation," and finishes by repeating the whole "we'll see where it goes" thing.

All of which would have been awkward in itself, but the whole situation became SUPER awkward when Rihanna caught wind of the interview, and responded in classic Rihanna fashion. Meaning a no holds barred, totally honest takedown of this guy and his nonsense.

She instagrammed a screenshot of the TMZ video, captioning it with a bunch of hashtags which basically said, flat out, this dude is lying, they've never met, and they're not friends.

"#thedevilisaliar #shesnotthatintoyou #shesnotintoyouatall #shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings #defamation of character."

Ouch.
