Rihanna and Matt Kemp

Rihanna dating LA Dodger Matt Kemp

Rihanna has a new man in her life, LA Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp. The two have been spotted together since December, and were reportedly seen making out hot and heavy in Dubai on New Year's Eve.

The young singer, who released a new album in November and recently made a remarkable appearance on Saturday Night Live, was last linked to Chris Brown, who pleaded guilty to physically abusing her after photos of her bruised face appeared on the Internet. Rihanna appeared on Oprah Winfrey's show and revealed that Brown abused her throughout most of their relationship.

Kemp is a rising star in Major League Baseball, coming off recent wins of the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards. His offensive credentials include career highs with 26 homers, 101 RBIs, 97 runs scored 52 walks in 159 games. He was third in the league with 34 steals and became the first Dodger in franchise history with at least 25 homers, 100 RBIs and 30 steals in the same season.

Kemp also slugged three grand slams and homered in four consecutive games. He hit .297 on the season and his .362 average against left-handed pitching ranked sixth in the league. His 10 RBIs in extra innings was the most in the Major Leagues since Juan Gonzalez had 11 in 1991, and the most in the National League since Tim Wallach had 11 for Montreal in 1982. Kemp will soon sign a two-year, seven-figure deal with the Dodgers.

Kemp sounds like a better catch than Brown. Here's wishing the new couple all the best!
