Rumor Rihanna Set to Wed Baseball Player Strikes Out

Truth rating: 1

An item in OK! magazine claims Rihanna may be nearing an engagement with boyfriend Matt Kemp.

According to the story, Katy Perry asked Rihanna to be a bridesmaid at her wedding to Russell Brand, to which Rihanna (reportedly) replied, “Yes,” and then added, “I’ll be next.”

Rihanna’s been dating Kemp, an outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers, since November (or hanging out with him just to disguise a top secret romance with Justin Timberlake, if you believe that ridiculous rumor).

But after such a short time, is it really true, as so-called “sources” tell OK!, that “an engagement announcement may follow soon” after a trip to Barbados where Kemp will meet Rihanna’s family?

Um… no.

A representative for Rihanna laughed off the rumor, and Gossip Cop has no reason to believe it’s anything but wildly premature speculation.
