Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob was a hot Twitter and sports radio topic this weekend when photos surfaced of him sitting next to Rihanna during game one of the NBA Finals. Lacob was pictured right next to Rihanna, but then, a few minutes later, sitting a couple seats away with his fiancée in between.
Obviously, rumors started swirling that his fiancée was upset that Lacob was flirting it up with the music superstar and she made a move to intervene before he and Rihanna fell in love, ran away and eloped. However, Lacob wants you to know that this rumor isn’t true. In fact, Lacob actually opted to move seats when it became apparent that Rihanna was not going to stop cheering for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
She bought seats, paid a lot of money for them, and she can root for whoever she wants, right? But I thought I would be a nice guy and I took my two kids, who get to go to a lot of games and booted them down to the end of the court and moved her next to me, and said, ‘hey, sit next to the owner.’
“I thought I was being friendly. She was rooting for LeBron the whole game so finally I was getting irritated and I said, ‘I’m the owner of the Warriors.’ She didn’t care, she just kept going. So finally I said that’s it, and I moved a couple seats down. Everyone has it that I moved my fiancée next to her because she got upset that I was sitting next to Rihanna which is not true.”
Celebrities don’t care if you own the opposing team, they will cheer for LeBron James until his dying day..
