Rihanna now dating longtime friend A$AP Rocky after months of romance rumors
Singer Rihanna has entered a relationship with her longtime friend, rapper A$AP Rocky after months of romance rumors, according to PEOPLE.
It all began after the pair, both 32, were seen having dinner with friends at the Beatrice Inn in New York over the weekend.
A source told The Sun : “They shared a hotel suite during that trip in New York. However, Rihanna is reluctant to put a label on it as it’s so soon after Hassan.
“They’re really enjoying each other’s company and taking things easy as it’s still early days.”
The couple has sparked romance rumors since Rihanna split from her boyfriend of three years, billionaire Hassan Jameel, in January. Then, The Sun reported that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky had been seeing each other, but a source told E! that she was still single.
In July, Rihanna featured the “Everyday” rapper in her Fenty Skin campaign. The duo did several interviews together to promote the collaboration.
In videos for GQ and Vogue featuring the two, Rihanna and A$AP answered several questions including how they take care of their skin.
“My skin type is just as complicated as men are,” Rihanna jokingly said when A$AP Rocky asked about her skin type for Vogue. “Y’all always try to say women are complicated [but] it’s y’all!”
When Rihanna asked the rapper what his own skin is like, he answered: “Handsome.”
In the GQ video, the rapper also revealed the “hardest part” about working with Rihanna.
“I think the hardest part about working with you is not goofin’ off and laughing the whole time. Like this s— is comedy,” he said. “That’s the hardest part. You know, people be so cool it’s hard not to, not to laugh. That’s all. But it was fun. The hardest part is not having too much fun. You just forget that it’s still work at the end of the day.”
A$AP Rocky and Rihanna are friends for a while now, they were also seen attending a Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris back in 2018.
The rapper has previously dated celebrities such as Kendall Jenner in 2017 and Brazilian model Daiane Sodré last year.
