RIHANNA'S rumoured boyfriend insists they are "just friends".

RIHANNA'S rumoured boyfriend insists they are "just friends".

The Russian Roulette singer - who has been single since splitting from Chris Brown after he assaulted her last February - was romantically linked with baseball star Matt Kemp after they holidayed in Mexico together last month, but the sportsman insists he is too focused on his career for romance.

He said: "Rihanna is just a friend, a good friend of mine. We went down to Mexico and had fun together."

Despite his comments, the 25-year-old Los Angeles' Dodgers star admits he was surprised by the attention his holiday with the 21-year-old singer received but is resigned to their friendship being the subject of scrutiny.

He said on his team's website: "I didn't think all that would come out of it.

"I'm not used to that much attention to my personal life." - Bang
