Barring a profoundly unusual change of heart, Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes won’t be singing “We Found Love” with Rihanna.
And thanks to former Los Angeles Clippers teammate Glen “Big Baby” Davis, she might even be a little “Disturbia”-d with him.
In case you missed it, the NBA-loving 27-year-old singer posterized Barnes on Instagram after learning that he had said they were in the “crush stage” of a relationship. But Rihanna does not “Love The Way You Lie” and claimed that she’s never even met him.
That takes us to Davis’ chat with SI Now’s Maggie Gray (video above) in which Davis probably does Barnes more harm than good (emphasis added):
“I think he likes her,” Davis said. “I think he just had a big crush. He said a little too much. He has a crush. It’s just a little high school fling thing. He’s just obsessed with her. Like on the plane, he talks about her all the time. … It was just something friendly, Rihanna didn’t have to kill him like that.”
And then Davis tried to advocate for Barnes but the damage is done.
On the bright side for Barnes, Rihanna’s not the “Only Girl (In The World).”
