Joel Embiid still hasn’t found love in a hopeless place.
The 76ers star, who recently had surgery to repair the fractured orbital bone in his face, is once again trying to see if Rhianna will date him.
Nobody took Embiid’s cell phone from him after the surgery Saturday, so while watching Kansas, his alma mater, get torched by Villanova in the Final Four, the star, who presumably had taken some strong medicine, decided to shoot his shot.
“Babe are you single or nah? @rihanna,” Embiid tweeted.
A few minutes later he quote tweeted himself and wrote “’Process’ stop… I thought you were an ALL STAR.”
Earlier in the year, Embiid was named an All-Star, which was a big deal because he claims a “famous girl” (believed to be Rihanna), once told him to “come back” when is named to that squad.
However, one of Embiid’s first comments after replacing Kristaps Porzingis on the All-Star team was about moving on from Rihanna.
“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,” Embiid told TNT.
