Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 12.52.42 PMMatt Barnes must be really smitten with Rihanna because he can’t keep her name out of his mouth. First, Barnes said he was dating Rihanna. Then Rihanna was like, “Whatchu talkin’ bout, Willis?”.

Last week in an interview with TMZ, Barnes noted that he’s friends with Rihanna.

“Rihanna’s my friend right now. So, uh, we’ll see where it goes.”

But let Rihanna tell it, she has no idea what he’s talking about. And now, here he is again, claiming that Rihanna does indeed know what he’s talking about.

Today on an appearance on The Jim Rome Show, he said:

“You live and you learn. When you’re in a situation like this and, you know, you just learn. You just got to keep stuff to yourself obviously. But the way I’m putting it right now, I’m too grown to lie, you know what I mean. It is what it is, I’m going to let this blow by like everything else blows by.”

“What can you do? At the end of the day we’re all grown-ups. Like I said, I’m too grown to be lying about stuff but life is life. You live and you learn… In life in general, there’s no need. I’m grown. My upbringing just doesn’t allow me to have that kind of stuff in it. Life, sports whatever it is I’m just about the truth. I’m always going to be me, even if you know sometimes my mouth gets me in trouble. I’m always going to be me, because I speak on things I feel passionately about. So love me or hate me I’m going to be me regardless.”

I kinda feel sorry for Barnes. Maybe he did genuinely think him and Rihanna had something going on, or could possibly have something going on? But apparently he forgot who he was dealing with. Rihanna is perpetually unbothered.

    Rhianna is the friend in his stupid head.

  • Some folks have strong delusions. Rihanna has denied even meeting Matt Barnes. In situations like these (and in any situation in general), honesty is the best policy. Barnes is just doubling down on his delusions. He is just further embarrassing himself. When one person makes a claim like this without evidence and another person denies it strongly, then it is best for that person (who made the claim) to move on with his life. Matt Barnes needs to move forward. Rihanna obviously doesn’t want a relationship with Matt Barnes and she has been living her life. Some males just feel entitled to go out with any person when no male is entitled to a relationship. It is a fact that many grown folks have been known to lie. One of the biggest grown liars in our generation are the neo-cons. Also, you don’t have to be grown to speak the truth either.

    • “Some folks have strong delusions.”

      This just made me LOL!

    • LOL. Well, it is what it is. Some folks have those delusions of grandeur.

    I don’t watch VH1’s reality shows. So how long have he and Gloria Govan been separated? The last time I heard something about Matt, he and Gloria were getting married. He and Gloria seem to both love publicity, at all costs.

      ALM, where have you been???? I haven’t seen you around here in some time. How are you?

      I don’t follow reality shows, so I can’t even answer your inquiry. LOL.

    • ALM247

      Hey Lady! I am still out here trying to spread the good news. LOL I keep popping in and out of the site. How have you been?

    • Noirluv45

      Hey there, ALM! Alright now! That’s what’s up, ALM. Keep spreading it because, Lord knows, it needs to be heard. It sure is good to see you again. It’s been ages. Maybe I’ve missed the threads you’ve appeared in. I’m doing very well. Thanks for asking. :-D
