In an interview with TMZ, NBA player Matt Barnes suggested that he might be dating Rihanna, which is funny because Rihanna says they’ve never even met.

“Uhhhh, Rihanna’s my friend right now. So, uh, we’ll see where it goes,” the new Memphis Grizzlies guard said in a video clip posted Sunday. “I think it just passed the crush stage. Just a little bit though.”

That same evening, the living goddess swiftly crushed Barnes’ fantasy in an Instagram post:

“#bishwhere #thedevilisaliar #shesnotthatintoyou #shesnotintoyouatall #shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings #defamationofcharacter,” the caption reads.

Wow, wow, wow. It’s just so sad for Matt Barnes that everyone will immediately willfully forget his name (that I had to ask my boyfriend if people knew) because of this grave fuck up.
