Rihanna's Baseball Player Beau Explains Ex's Restraining Order
The new Star reports that Rihanna's latest beau -- L.A. Dodger Matt Kemp -- has been accused of abusing his ex-girlfriend, Felisha Terrell, who even filed a restraining order against him.
But an agent for the baseball player, 25, is now trying to clear up the report, insisting that the court order, which was subsequently lifted, is a "non-issue."
"Matt dated Felisha about two years ago and decided to end their relationship," agent Dave Stewart tells E! News. "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," Stewart says in the statement.
"She has very recently said that she has no issue whatsoever with Matt and that she and Matt consider this to be a non-issue. "Matt Kemp is a consummate Midwestern gentleman who has never displayed any act of violence towards a woman," the statement concludes.
A rep for Terrell also says he was never abusive.
"During the course of the relationship, there was a restraining order filed by Felisha, but it had nothing to do with domestic violence and to be clear Matt was NEVER physically abusive to Felisha, nor did she fear for her life," the rep says.
"The restraining order was subsequently vacated. They both have moved on separately but remain amicable."
Last June, Rihanna's ex Chris Brown was sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community labor for beating the singer, 21. He has since apologized. Last July, he wrote on his website: "I have told Rihanna countless times, and I am telling you today, that I am truly sorry and that I wasn't able to handle the situation both differently and better."
