Matt Kemp has responded back to the growing concern that his recent poor performance on the baseball field for the Los Angeles Dodgers is the result of dating Rihanna.

He’s been benched several times this season which has left his coaches and teammates worried that he is distracted by his very public relationship. We thought it, too: Is Rihanna Distracting Boyfriend Matt Kemp?

However, he disagrees.

He told the LA Times,

“My girl has nothing to do with what I do on the baseball field,” Kemp says. “If anything she helps. She makes me happy, and as stressed as I am coming home sometimes, it’s nice to have someone there who just wants to support you.”
