Rihanna & A$AP Rocky are really dating now, after ‘hooking up’ in January

It feels like this happened years ago, but back in January, the rumor mill was in overdrive about Rihanna and A$AP Rocky. Rocky and Rih have been friends for years, but they seemed like a lot more than friends in January. Rihanna and Hassan Jameel had recently broken up at the time, and various sources claimed that while Rocky and Rih were hooking up, it was nothing serious. It sounded like Rocky was just there as an ego boost following a major breakup. Like, I thought Rihanna and Hassan would get married and have a baby, that’s how serious their relationship was. The Rocky thing really did seem like it was just two single friends hooking up. But apparently it grew into something more:

There’s definitely some “Love on the Brain” here! Rihanna is dating longtime friend, rapper A$AP Rocky, a source tells PEOPLE.

The news comes after the New York Post’s Page Six reported that the couple — both 32 — was spotted having dinner with friends at the Beatrice Inn in New York over the weekend.

The couple has sparked romance rumors since Rih split from her boyfriend of three years, billionaire Hassan Jameel, in January. (Then, The Sun reported that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky had been seeing each other, but a source told E! that she was still single.)

I don’t really feel one way or the other about this. They’re both attractive people and it’s clear they were friends for a while before they started up. I don’t think Rocky is a terrible person, and my guess is that he treats Rihanna like a princess. But I still think she could do better! She’s one of those women where I’m like… she should be with a handsome billionaire who will give her tons of jewelry and a castle. But those guys probably bore her to tears. I do wonder though… do you think Rocky and Rihanna have been happening since January? Were they locked down together during the pandemic? Hm.

    She has terrible taste in me.

  2. Jay (the Canadian one) says:

    Why does she need to be with a billionaire? She’s a success in her own right.

    • godivalady says:

      i was going to say this! like, there are so many more important things in a relationship when you can buy yourself whatever you want.

  3. Nev says:

    why him?
    maybe it’s a meantime thing.

  4. Yup, Me says:

    I think A$AP is very handsome but don’t know much about him otherwise. Hassan was gorgeous, too, but dude is not, himself, a billionaire. He comes from a billionaire family. Rih has more going on than either of these men, business wise. I hope she’s being treated well.

  5. detritus says:

    Rih’s got enough money to buy her own castle, but I get it.

    I want the absolute best for her. But in my mind that means finding someone to cherish and support and motivate and satisfy her.

    Like what Furness and Jackman have, or Teigen and Legend.

    I dunno, I think we still often treat women as prizes to be won, even accidentally. The idea that a woman can’t be the most successful and wealthy in a relationship kinda plays into those gender norms.

    Didn’t they do a video for a magazine, him promoting her men skinline?
    It seemed very obvious to me they are together, reminded me of me and my “boyfriend in the making” – he irritates me so much, SO MUCH that I like him :rolleyes:

  7. Noki says:

    She waa also with Travis Scott before Kylie,i think she tried the ‘uncool normal’ guy but was probably bored.
    And Asap is a childish douche.

  8. Jules says:

    She’s so gorgeous. I don’t know much about him but I associate him with the Kardashian klan. Keep moving Rihanna!

  9. Onomo says:

    There’s a meme that says Rihanna is dating your boyfriend what do you say to her?

    answer: why not me?!?!?!

    Basically she is too good for all of us but she doesn’t know it and picks horrible jerks like Rocky.

    ASAP said said awful things about black women. This won’t end well
