(Newser) – Rihanna, less than a year removed from her beating at the hands of then-boyfriend Chris Brown, is dating a man with a history of violence against women. That’s according to an ex-girlfriend of Matt Kemp, who took out a restraining order against the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder in 2008. “He is violent and I am afraid,” she wrote in the papers, obtained by Star.

Actress Felisha Terrell accused Kemp, now 25, of stalking and threatening her, news that makes friends worry for Rihanna, 21. “You’d think after what she went through with Chris, RiRi would be extra careful about learning the background of any man she gets close to,” one says. “It’s almost as if she has a dark side of her own—an attraction to bad boys.”
