Does Rihanna Make Matt Kemp Worse At Baseball?

Matt Kemp has come out and defended Rihanna against critics who say that his baseball playing has suffered in the wake of his LA lifestyle and time spent with the singer.

My girl has nothing to do with what I do on the baseball field,” Kemp told the LA Times. “If anything she helps. She makes me happy, and as stressed as I am coming home sometimes, it’s nice to have someone there who just wants to support you.”

Aww…that’s sweet isn’t it? Just kidding – who cares!

Here’s Rihanna – still pulling that red hairdo – out with her brother Rajad in NYC!
