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.
