Rihanna Confirms Relationship with LA Dodgers’ Matt Kemp

During a recent radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, Rihanna confirmed her romantic relationship with Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp. She commented, “He’s my boyfriend. It’s new and it’s fun and it’s nothing too serious. I don’t want anything that’s gonna take up so much of my energy and time right now in a bad way. I just wanna have fun and that’s what it’s about.” Kemp will not be following Rihanna on tour, because as the singer states, “No, he actually has a job like me.”

The romance wasn’t exactly a secret. Kemp, 25, helped Rihanna celebrate turning 22 in February with a surprise party in Phoenix, Arizona. While there, he reportedly also introduced the singer to his family. They also holidayed in Mexico and pics were snapped of the couple kissing. The not-news came out during the same interview with Seacrest in which Rihanna revealed British comedian Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry’s wedding plans. The two are to wed at the end of the year in India, where they became engaged. Rihanna is close friends with Perry and will be planning the bachelorette party. She told Seacrest, “I have to come up with something cool, because she’s getting married in India, so I’m like ‘Okay, now what do I do to match that,’”

Rihanna’s friends and family must enjoy seeing the singer so happy, especially after her abusive relationship with Chris Brown, which dominated headlines last year.
