Are the rumors true? Is visionary artist Rihanna dating apparent basketball player Matt Barnes? 

No. No, no, no, no, no.

Matt Barnes, whom Wikipedia and this picture of him holding a basketball suggest is a basketball player, told TMZ that he and Rihanna might be heading toward a relationship.

Then Rihanna posted the above Instagram picture of Barnes. She included the following hashtags: #bishwhere, #thedevilisaliar, #shesnotthatintoyou, #shesnotintoyouatall, #shesneverevenmetyou, #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings, and #defamationofcharacter.

Those are all pretty biting but "she's never even met you" probably hits the hardest. You never hear about long-lasting romances between people who have never met.
