After weeks of conflicting reports that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are not dating, Us Weekly just hit everyone with another update. As of today, it sounds like the two musicians are indeed talking. According to their source, “Rihanna and A$AP are hanging out and hooking up. They’re having fun and have always had chemistry”. Of course, hooking up doesn’t necessarily mean dating, but there is definitely something going on there.
As exciting as the Rihanna and A$AP Rocky dating rumors were, A little birdie told E! News that Rihanna and A$AP are not in a relationship right now, insisting that they’re just hanging out…whatever the heck that means. “Rihanna is single. She just got out of a long, intense relationship with Hassan. She wants to be single and isn’t going to jump into something,” the source said. “She’s hanging out with A$AP Rocky, but she is not dating him”. the source added, “They have a long history and she’s just having fun,”
Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky ended 18 months of radio silence by straight up admitting Rih is “the love of his life,” later referring to her as “The One” and revealing that they went on a cross-country road trip together during the pandemic.
Rihanna, of course, has stayed mum—cynics teased that Rocky had simped himself onto the chopping block by talking a bit too publicly and effusively about a woman who has broken her own share of seemingly indestructible hearts.
But this is Rihanna we’re talking about, and she knows it. Who can blame him! So here they are, going strong as ever, parading around Rocky’s native New York City streets in plain sight and looking positively drunk in love doing normal NYC couple stuff like falling into Barcade. But of course, they’re anything but normal, and if her fuzzy flop hat and his sleeveless sweater-leather pants combo is any indication, we are in for an incredible bout of runway-level paparazzi pics, and hopefully some sanctioned flicks of their own too.
So the question still remains, WHO IS RIHANNA DATING?
