Rihanna, Matt Kemp are boyfriend and girlfriend for real

Rihanna kids choice Let the speculation end -- Rihanna told Ryan Seacrest on Thursday that Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers is indeed her boyfriend.

Ah, now the surprise birthday party, complete with little-person stripper, makes so much more sense.

"I just wanna have fun and that’s what it’s about," she said. And no, he won't be accompanying her when her tour begins in July, Ryan. Because he's a professional baseball player, and those guys sort of have a "tour" of their starting up.

Or, as Rihanna put it during the interview on KIIS-FM, "he actually has a job like me."
