*There are reports that busy schedules are coming between Rihanna and her Los Angeles Dodger boyfriend Matt Kemp .
E! Online is quoting “sources close to the couple” who say there’s nothing dramatic going on between the two, but they’ve been spending a lot less time together these days. Simply put, Kemp’s in Arizona focused on training with full-day workouts while Ri-Ri has been jetting around the world promoting her new album, “Loud.”
The two have been dating for about a year. “Their schedules were difficult, but they made it all seem so easy being together,” says a friend of the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder.
“He loves her very much and I honestly believe she loves him a lot,” says another source. “How this plays out no one, not even them know at this point.”
A Rihanna confidante concurs, but says no one would be surprised if the romance fizzled because the singer is “still very much a kid.”
In early November, Kemp was reportedly planning to spend the holidays with Rihanna, but that appeared to have changed in late November around the time of the American Music Awards. “I don’t think it’s him,” says another insider. “He would never pull the plug. Before he would leave training to be with her. Something has changed.”
As for speculation that Kemp cheated on Rihanna with a woman he was recently seen with outside a Los Angeles nightclub, E! Online’s source insists he didn’t stray. The pal of Kemp’s says, “The girl…is nowhere near his type.”
