Rihanna‘s allegiance to LeBron James knows no bounds. The pop star went on an Instagram binge showering LBJ and his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, with praise after they beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the NBA Finals to win the championship Sunday night (June 19).
“Who y’all think y’all frontin’ on???! —— #NeverLoseFaith #Champ #MVP#History #KingJames #OnYourTurf —-,” wrote Riri in one post, showing King James holding both the Larry O’Brien piece and the Bill Russell Most Valuable Player trophy.
The bad gal then struck a pose with the 2016 champ (sort of), pairing it with the caption: “Bae! Lol ———-.” She also posted a bikini pic where James’ number “23” was written across her tummy in sunscreen.
The shout outs on the ‘Gram dull in comparison, of course, to Rihanna’s LeBron name-drop on her 2015 hit “B-tch Better Have My Money,” where she sings, “Ballin’ bigger than LeBron/ B-tch, give me your money.”
Sadly, Warriors MVP Steph Curry didn’t get the same treatment from the unfiltered songstress, who dedicated two IG posts to the point guard, offering in one, “‘Ballin bigger than Lebron’ they said,” and a troll-y, edited image of a bare-bottomed Curry in another.
