Last night, Rihanna sat courtside at Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors (stay with me!). Sitting next to her was Warriors owner Joe Lacob, pictured right. This was exciting for everyone except for one person: Lacob’s fianceé, who made very sure her husband-to-be didn’t get too much face time with perhaps the most alluring celebrity on Earth.
Here, via San Jose Mercury writer Diamond Leung, is a short story demonstrating the power of Rihanna:
