Here’s some photos from a recent GQ Magazine photo feature with Rihanna’s “ummm…boyfriend” Matt Kemp.
(Key never heard of Trichophytonrubrum?)
Kemp to GQ on the Tabloid magnet:
“That’s a good friend of mine,” Kemp says cryptically but politely. “We hang out and have fun.”
In the latest newsstand issue of STAR MAGAZINE, the tabloid reports offline that when Matt Kemp returns from Los Angeles Dodgers Spring Training in Arizona in a week, he’ll move in to the L.A. home of his girlfriend, Rihanna:
Rihanna is getting a new roomate! The singer, 22, invited her L.A. Dodgers star beau, Matt Kemp, to move into her Los Angeles home, an insider reveals. “He had boxes of his things brought over in mid-March. He’s training in Arizona now, but when he’s back he’ll be at her place.”
Still., the slugger, 25, is playing it safe. “He’s keeping his house, to see how things go,”adds the insider. “But they are so in love.”
Just in time for opening day, which’ll allow Rihanna to extract the most publicity possible from the relationship. Complete coincidence I’m sure.
So who is the happiest guy in town over this development? It isn’t Kemp. Read more…
Rihanna guested on KBIG-FM in Los Angeles this morning and was asked by host Sean Valentine if she was going to the Grammy Awards Show with Matt Kemp.
(Still hangin’ on?)
“I’m going to the Grammy’s alone, as I always have, even when I was in a relationship. I’m still single if that’s what you really want to ask.”
On her vacation to Cabo with Kemp: “Yeah, it was a blast.”
Sadly, Valentine did not press her beyond those comments, but she said enough for people to figure out what’s up.
On January 25, 2002, Mike Strain of the THE OKLAHOMAN reported the following from a story titled, “Midwest City stars named in rape complaint.”

Midwest City basketball stars Shelden Williams and De’Angelo Alexander, along with another teammate, have been named in a rape complaint in Columbus, Ohio, according to a police report obtained by The Oklahoman. Named as suspects on the report are Williams, 18; Alexander, 17; and Matthew R. Kemp, 17.
The alleged incident took place on Jan. 20, 2002, at a Columbus, Ohio, hotel.
Here’s some photos of Los Angeles Dodger Matt Kemp and Rihanna during a recent trip to Cabo:
The two are at a hotel pool.
Not to be crude, but that’s one of the reasons I never take baths in hotel rooms and always burn that disgusting foam rubber bedspread appointment hoteliers privilege us with.
But enough about mattress mites, is Kemp’s coupling with Rihanna something Dodger fans should be concerned about? Perhaps not right this moment, but if the relationship continues, Kemp is going to be looking at infinitely more media scrutiny than he’s used to.
