NBA star Joel Embiid says he won’t try his shot with Rihanna again


Getty Images via ABCOnce upon a time, back in 2013, Philadelphia 76ers player Joel [jo-EL] Embiid asked Rihanna out on a date. 

However, RiRi famously replied, “Come back when you’re an all-star.” 

Well,  Thursday night, Joel became an NBA all-star, following the Sixers’ win against the Boston Celtics. 

But in a post-game interview that evening, he confirmed he’s no longer interested in the “Love on the Brain” singer.  

“She denied me back then, so why go with her again? I might have to pass that and move on to the next one…trust the process,” he said.  

No comment yet from Rihanna, who’s rumored to be dating Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel
