Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been rumoured to be romantically linked a few times, but sources have now confirmed the pair are dating again.
The 32-year-old singer and the Harlem-bred rapper are reportedly at the beginning stage of a romantic relationship, according to People magazine.
The confirmation came after the pair were seen happily enjoying a dinner alongside some friends at Beatrice Inn on Saturday in New York.
This recent outing isn’t the first time the two have stepped out publicly together. Earlier, A$AP Rocky appeared alongside Rihanna for the mogul’s debut campaign of her skincare venture, Fenty Skin. The rapper joined a roster of talent including Lil Nas X and model Paloma Elsesser to launch the gender-neutral line, and even helped Rihanna with a series of campaign videos and interviews promoting the brand.
Rihanna and Rocky’s friendship dates back even further than their recent campaign, however. Back in 2013, Rocky opened for Rihanna as a part of her Diamonds World Tour; he also joined the singer on her 2011 track ‘Cockiness’ from her ‘Talk That Talk’ album.
Furthermore, Rocky has been a mainstay at events with Rihanna over the years, including at the singer’s glamorous annual Diamond Ball, the 2019 British Fashion Council Awards, and a 2018 Louis Vuitton runway show in Paris.
News of the pair going official follows Rihanna’s breakup from Toyota heir Hassan Jameel at the beginning of this year. Rocky has previously been linked to models Daiane Sodré and Kendall Jenner.
