Let this be a lesson for anyone who else who wants to pretend like they're dating Rihanna.

When TMZ caught up with Memphis Grizzlies player Matt Barnes in Los Angeles Saturday and asked him whether he and the pop star were dating, the NBA baller said, "Rihanna's my friend right now...so we'll see where it goes." They went on to ask him if there was a future between them and he said "yeah...possibly," adding that their relationship was "past the crush stage" and it didn't matter if she lived outside of Memphis because she has a jet and can get to him that way.

Apparently, this budding relationship was all in Matt's mind, though. When Rihanna caught wind of the interview, she blasted him in the best way ever with a series of hashtags that screamed they are not only not dating, but they're not friends either.

And of course...the Twitterverse had jokes too.

Matt has made it no secret for quite some time that he's been feeling Rihanna, but, for now it looks like she only has eyes for Lewis Hamilton, who she's been rumored to be dating as well. The pair has been spotted hanging out in Barbados and New York City together, and so far, she hasn't shut those rumors down.
