What’s cooking between Rihanna and ASAP Rocky?
ASAP and Rihanna’s alleged affair was confirmed after the two were spotted having dinner with friends at the Beatrice Inn in New York. This update has come in after months of speculation and rumors that the two have been romantically involved.
Rihanna broke up with her boyfriend Hassan Jameel earlier in January. She had been dating the billionaire for about three years before the two split up. ASAP Rocky too was previously dating Kendall Jenner; the two even attended the MET Gala together. Just a month after Rihanna and Jameel broke up, there were rumors that the 32-year-old singer had started going out with ASAP. But the rumors were soon dismissed by a source who said,
“Rihanna is single. She just got out of a long, intense relationship with Hassan. She wants to be single and isn’t going to jump into something. She’s hanging out with ASAP Rocky, but she is not dating him.”
But things have changed since then. ASAP is also prominently featured in Rihanna’s Fenty Skin campaign, which she launched in July. The following month, the couple embarked on a promotional tour for Rihanna’s Fenty Skin, appearing in a two-part video series for Vogue and GQ. Their chemistry seemed to suggest that there could be more to their partnership. According to Entertainment Tonight, a source close to the couple said,
“They have always had amazing chemistry, and Rihanna relates to ASAP, and it feels natural, easy and fun. She feels very comfortable around him since they’ve known each other for such a long time and also feels a connection to him because his dad is from Barbados.”
