Things Are Gettin ‘Rocky’ Between A$AP and Bad Gal Rih

This month A$AP Rocky made headlines that he can’t seem to escape – even with a trip to Barbados and it seems like his PR team and legal representatives have a lot of work to do. 

Rihanna, 34, and longtime friend A$AP Rocky, also the same age, became official earlier last year, and the duo easily and quickly became Hollywood’s best-dressed couple. Rumors of A$AP and Rihanna’s romance first started shortly after Rihanna split from billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel in January 2020, after three years together. The two have been friends since A$AP joined Rihanna’s Diamond Tour in 2013 and the pair seemed to be a match made in fashion heaven. 

In January 2022, the couple revealed they are expecting their first child together. The journey of Rihanna’s pregnancy has been one fans have marveled over as she hasn’t been shy to show off her baby bump and embrace her upcoming motherhood. We all found love in Rihanna’s pregnancy outfits (see more here). 

A source reports that having a baby was something Rihanna never focused on, but being with Rocky “opened her up to the idea. The source said, “She’s loving all the changes to her body during pregnancy and has always celebrated pregnant women in her runway shows for Fenty.”

On April 14, cheating rumors dispersed that A$AP cheated on Rihanna and the two broke up after a tweet by writer Louis Pisano, who has since apologized for spreading a false narrative. In a Tweet he says:

“Hi all, so I’d like to address the situation. Last night I made a dumb decision to tweet some information I had received. I’m not going to talk about sources, blame others for a discussion that was started, etc because at the end of the day I made the decision to draft that tweet, press send and put that out with my name on it. So I’d like to formally apologize to all parties involved with my actions and for my reckless tweets. I fully accept the consequences of my actions for my tweets and any harm they caused. I have no excuse for it, I’ve been way too wrapped up in the Twitter drama and unfortunately leaned into being messy as a brand which is something going forward I’m going to move away from.”

After the spread of the Tweet, Amina Muaddi who was accused of cheating with the rapper, denied the rumors, in an Instagram Post and Rihanna and A$AP fled to Barbados where the singer has been known to say she wants to raise her children. 

After vacation, the rapper was arrested after landing at Los Angeles International Airport in connection with a November 2021 shooting while still wearing his vacation clothes. Rocky was charged with assault with a deadly weapon. The LAPD alleges that Rocky fired a gun at an acquaintance after an argument and details are still emerging.
