Rihanna and Matt Kemp’s Relationship

Reports are floating around that Rihanna and Matt Kemp may have split. Though it’s unconfirmed, sources are saying the two are no longer together, hence their absence from each other’s sides this holiday season.A source tells US Weekly, “It happened over the last few weeks… She basically was just over it. It was never as serious as it looked. It was always just [about] having fun” and that “Matt’s sick of always following after her like a puppy dog all over the world. He wants something more normal.” Another source says the two are “both extremely busy in their careers and that causes problems when there is little time to get together” — essentially placing the blame on their busy careers as to why they haven’t been seen together recently.Whatever the outcome, here’s a look at Rihanna and Matt Kemp’s year-long relationship in photos.
