Even as divorce looms over Chavez Ravine, love proves it still can bloom there.

Considering it's now official that singer Rihanna (in the hoodie) is dating Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp(notes), she also deemed it safe to attend her first game at Dodger Stadium in that capacity.

Their relationship was the worst-kept secret in the music/baseball bizniz, but you can't argue with results. She's 1-0 in the stands with Kemp hitting one of four L.A. homers in a 9-5 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Kemp's homer came in the bottom of the fifth off new D-back Ian Kennedy(notes), who also surrendered homers to Manny Ramirez(notes) and Casey Blake(notes) an inning earlier.

There was a close call for Kemp, though, and it came during an interview.

From T.J. Simers' column in the L.A. Times:

Hard to stay grounded, though, when they are giving Kemp various "this or that" choices on the scoreboard in a taped interview, getting around to "Beyonce or Rihanna?" and one of them really is his girlfriend.
But things are going so well for him, that while initially answering, "no comment," the Gold Glove recipient catches himself and gets it right.
"Rihanna," he says.

Phew. He had us in suspense for a moment there.
