Joel Embiid Rejects The Idea Of Going Out With Rihanna
It’s good to make promises and keep them and that might just be the case for superstar singer and diva Rihanna. NBA Star Joel Embiid was named an Allstar on Thursday and fans flooded Rihanna’s Instagram asking she kept to her word.
Where is all this coming from??
Well in 2014 Rihanna had told the 76ers star that she’ll go out with him once he becomes an All-Star, and guess what? Joel Embiid was just named to the 2018 NBA East All-Star team Thursday.
While Embiid prepped for his game against the Boston Celtics, his fans didn’t forget about Rihanna’s comment, and decided to flood Rihanna’s comments on Instagram just minutes after Embiid was named an All-Star starter.
Thursday night’s game against the Celtics, which the 76ers’ won on the road, Joel was asked about the possibility of a date with Rihanna in his post-game interview, which he surprisingly isn’t down for anymore.
Joel joking said that he might need to pass on her now since she turned him down a few years ago.
“She denied me back then so why go with her again. I have to pass and move on to the next one,” Joel said on TNT, before ending the interview with “Trust the Process.”
