Rihanna's Boyfriend Responds to Violence Rumors

Yesterday, an disturbing story surfaced claiming Rihanna’s new man Matt Kemp had a history of violence with an ex-girlfriend. The woman even came forward with a restraining order she claimed she was forced to get while the two were living together.

Kemp’s people have since responded to the report. The say in a statement:

"Matt dated Felisha about two years ago and decided to end their relationship. She chose to file a complaint and shortly thereafter, on her own accord, decided to drop it…. She has very recently said that she has no issue whatsoever with Matt and that she and Matt consider this to be a non-issue. Matt Kemp is a consummate Midwestern gentleman who has never displayed any act of violence towards a woman."

Felisha’s people in turn released a statement of their own, saying:

“Felisha Terrell and Matt Kemp lived together and were in a relationship for over a year where they both cared for one another. During the course of the relationship there was a restraining order filed by Felisha but it had nothing to do with domestic violence and to be clear Matt was never physically abusive to Felisha, nor did she fear for her life. The restraining order was subsequently vacated. They both have moved on separately but remain amicable.”

Interesting that she would change her story so quickly! We’re glad to hear it! Rihanna needs to surround herself with positive and non-threatening people!
