Back in 2014, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, hoping for a date with Rihanna, was told to give it another try once he achieved All-Star status. And now that he’s gotten there, he’s withdrawn his interest.

Here’s his revealing tweet from three and a half years ago.

Embiid was announced as an All-Star starter on Thursday, leading his fans to flood the vocalist’s Instagram.

But it was all for naught. Apparently, he’s done with his crush on RiRi.

After demolishing the Boston Celtics with 26 points, 16 boards, six assists, and a pair of blocks, Embiid cemented his internet legend status by telling Kristen Ledlow—and probably Rihanna, who loves herself some basketball—as much on live television.

This rude boy’s move sent Twitter off.

Eh, Rihanna’s more of LeBron James gal anyway.
