American rapper A$AP Rocky has finally announced that he is in a relationship with singer Rihanna.
The star described her as “the love of my life” in an interview with GQ.
“She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know,” he said. “She’s the one.”
Since becoming an official item, they have been trying to avoid being photographed together by the paparazzi, the article stated.
The rapper said his partner had “absolutely” influenced his new album, which will also feature Morrissey.
His relationship with Rihanna is believed to have started last year, after she split from her boyfriend of three years, billionaire Hassan Jameel.
In July, she featured A$AP Rocky in a campaign for her Fenty Skin skincare range, and the duo gave several joint interviews to promote the collaboration.
When it comes to the next steps in their relationship, the New York native said he thinks he’ll make a great dad someday.
“If that’s in my destiny, absolutely,” he told GQ. “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child.”
Rumours over whether the stars were dating began as early as 2013, when the rapper supported Rihanna on her Diamonds World Tour.
The pair both featured in the A$AP Rocky’s 2013 video for Fashion Killa; while the rapper provided a guest verse on the remix of Rihanna’s 2012 hit Cockiness (I Love It).
Born Rakim Athelaston Mayers, the star was one of the biggest break-out stars of the 2010s, scoring two US number one albums with the Long.Live.A$AP (2013) and At.Long.Last.A$AP (2015).
