She said she'd never even met him. Awkward.

So it was pretty surprising when NBA star Matt Barnes gave an interview to TMZ in which he hinted that he's dating Rihanna.

"Rihanna is my friend right now so we'll see where it goes," he said. But when asked whether there was a ~romantic future~ for the pair, he said: "Possibly, possibly. I think it's just past the crush stage. Just a little bit though." And when he was asked how they'd manage a long-distance relationship, he responded: "She's rich. We'll be alright."

But now she's now taken to Instagram to shut the rumours down in the most Rihanna way possible.

She shared a screengrab from the video interview alongside a bunch of hashtags in which she claimed to have never even met Matt, let alone be dating him. She ended the rant with the hashtag "#DefamationOfCharacter". Yikes.
