Rihanna’s purported ‘boyfriend,’ who is said to just be a good friend, had some explaining to do after a restraining order placed against him in 2008 surfaced this week. Requested by his his ex-girlfriend Felicia Terrell, who claimed to have feared for her life after their breakup, the restraining order was later dropped. In a statement released through his rep, Kemp disputes claims that he has been violent or has violent tendencies. “Matt dated Felisha about two years ago and decided to end their relationship. She chose to file a complaint and shortly thereafter, on her own accord, decided to drop it based on the fact that the statements made within were false,” says the rep. “She has very recently said that she has no issue whatsoever with Matt and that she and Matt consider this to be a nonissue. Matt Kemp is a consummate Midwestern gentleman who has never displayed any act of violence towards a woman.” Rihanna has not commented on the matter, which has drawn criticism from some fans who say they fear for the entertainer who just last year endured a beating at the hands of her then boyfriend Chris Brown.
