There’s been some back and forth about what’s going on between Matt Barnes and Rihanna.  There was a report that the two went on a couple of dates and Barnes said things may be progressing between them.  Rihanna however shut all that down and said she doesn’t even know him (ouch).  Barnes friend and former teammate Glen Davis came out in support and said Barnes definitely knows her.  Now here’s what Barnes has to stay about RiRi putting him on blast.

“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,” Barnes said. “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.”

As for Rihanna’s brutal seven hashtag’s downplaying their relationship/friendship, Barnes still wasn’t backing off of his TMZ video comments.

“I just smiled. I just smiled, that’s it,” Barnes said. “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,” Barnes said. “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 don’t know about you but I’m totally over this story.  I think it’s best for all parties to move on.
