Note to the world: Don't go around pretending you are dating, or might be dating, or are thinking about dating Rihanna.

Matt Barnes made that mistake over the weekend, speaking with TMZ and saying he would be up for it and referring to her as his "friend."

Not so, at least according to Rihanna, who immediately shut down the speculation on her Instagram, writing, in part, during the all-hashtag post, "#shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings."  

​Matt! You hurt Riri's feelings. A date does not seem forthcoming.
