Rihanna sat courtside during game 1 of the NBA Finals, and she may have sparked a new feud with Kevin Durant! The Warriors star appeared to totally stare RiRi down after she reportedly heckled him and openly showed her support for LeBron James. Watch here!
The Golden State Warriors won game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but Kevin Durant appeared to get pretty annoyed at one famous fan during the game. Although the game was in Oakland, Rihanna was in the front row cheering on the Cavs and LeBron James, and Kevin really seemed to not be having it. First, RiRi jumped up out of her seat and bowed down to LeBron, and then, she reportedly yelled ‘BRICK’ as Durant was in the middle of shooting a free throw. After that, video shows Kevin absolutely glaring at someone in the front row, allegedly Rihanna.
However, it’s not clear at all that the heckler was Rihanna, and Kevin insisted after the game that he wants nothing to do with this alleged feud. “I don’t even remember that,” he said, while rolling his eyes, during a post-game press conference. He seemed surprised when the reporter explained that the glare-down was all over social media, and eventually, his teammate, Steph Curry, came to his rescue. “Don’t get into that trap,” he warned. Finally, Kevin squashed the talk all together, concluding, “Yeah, I don’t want to get into that. I’m cool. Have fun with that.”
Rihanna has yet to comment on the situation herself, but it was definitely great to see her out having fun at the game — especially since she’s been making headlines because of terrible body-shamers this week. An entire blog post on Barstool Sports was even dedicated to one of her recent looks, posing the question, “Is Rihanna going to make fat the hot new trend?” It was beyond cruel and completely out of line, but Rih clearly isn’t letting it get to her!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Rihanna and Kevin are feuding?
