After the paparazzi started seeing them together early this year, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp was named Rihanna’s new boyfriend. However both had yet to confirm their relationship.
The couple seemed to want keep things under wraps. The singer even told Ellen DeGeneres, when appearing on her show, that she was single.
But now, months later, Rihanna is confirming the rumors. According to a Rap-Up.com report, she admitted that the two are an item in an interview with LA’s KIIS FM radio station.
“He’s my boyfriend,” Rihanna said. “It’s new and it’s fun and it’s nothing too serious. I don’t want anything that’s gonna take up so much of my energy and time right now in a bad way. I just wanna have fun and that’s what it’s about.”
Riri and Kemp were photographed getting pretty cozy in Mexico around New Year’s time. In the pics, which were posted all around the web, the couple are seen kissing and in a few, Kemp is shown feeling on Rihanna’s booty.
During the interview, the singer was asked if Kemp would accompany her on her upcoming tour. She says no … because, well, he has a job.
“No, he actually has a job like me,” Rihanna said.
So there you have it folks. Rihanna is officially off the market … for now.
