Rihanna and her baseball player beau, Matt Kemp, have called it quits, Us Weekly reports.
Rihanna and the L.A. Dodgers outfielder began their romance in early 2010, almost one year after she ended her tumultuous relationship with Chris Brown. Kemp was reportedly an integral part in the ‘Only Girl in the World’ singer’s recovery after being assaulted by Brown.
Only months ago, Rihanna said of Kemp, “I have a boyfriend. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy,” but according to an Us source, “Matt’s sick of always following after her like a puppy dog all over the world. He wants something more normal.”
The singer seems to be coping well with the split. “It was never as serious as it looked. It was always just [about] having fun,” says the source. “She basically was just over it.”
