Rihanna Is Reportedly Dating Her Longtime Friend A$AP Rocky

Rihanna and her rumoured new boyfriend have toured and circled around each other as far back as 2013.

In news that will come as devastating to pretty much everyone who's not A$AP Rocky, Rihanna is reportedly dating US rapper A$AP Rocky. Pfft. Whatever.

Word on the street (alright fine, a source in People) confirmed the two artists are officially an item. The news is corroborated by a report from Page Six claiming they were seen having dinner together over the weekend.

Rumours of a romance started swirling when Rihanna split from billionaire Hassan Jameel back in January 2020 (at the time, though, Rihanna's team denied there was anything going on). A$AP even starred in Rihanna's Fenty Beauty campaign in July (you know, when most of us were deep in the throes of COVID-19 lockdown). The two also did a bunch of interviews together. Incidentally, when Rihanna asked A$AP Rocky what his skin type is, he answered: "Handsome." Wow.

A$AP has previously denied claims the two were dating. "I don't even look at her like that," he reportedly said. A$AP pls. It's Rihanna. Everyone looks at her like that.
