Pic! Rihanna & A$AP Rocky Heat Up Cold New York City Night
“Love on the Brain” singer Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky continue to fuel dating rumors!
Earlier this week, Rihanna and A$AP kept a low profile while taking a stroll in New York City.
For their chilly outing, Rihanna wore a cap, a hoodie, and a white puffer, while A$AP Rocky sported camouflage-print pants and a hooded puffer. They also both covered their faces with masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over the weekend, the two were spotted hanging out with friends at the Beatrice Inn in New York City. Page Six reported they sat discreetly behind a curtain.
According to E! News, Rihanna and A$AP “weren't outwardly affectionate” during their night out.
While People magazine reports Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are dating, they have stayed mum on the rumors.
A few months ago, A$AP Rocky starred in Rihanna’s campaign for Fenty Skin, even participating in interviews with her. In an interview for Vogue, Rihanna joked, “Y'all always try to say women are complicated [but] it's y'all!"
In another interview with GQ, A$AP Rocky revealed what it was like to work with Rihanna. He shared, “I think the hardest part about working with you is not goofin’ off and laughing the whole time. Like this s— is comedy. That's the hardest part. You know, people be so cool it's hard not to, not to laugh. That's all. But it was fun. The hardest part is not having too much fun. You just forget that it's still work at the end of the day."
In January, news broke that she had called it quits with billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel after three years of dating. Soon after, she was linked to A$AP.
At the time, a source told The Sun UK, “They shared a hotel suite during that trip in New York. However, Rihanna is reluctant to put a label on it as it’s so soon after Hassan. They’re really enjoying each other’s company and taking things easy as it’s still early days.”
Despite the rumors, a source insisted they were only friends. They told E! News, “Rihanna is single. She just got out of a long intense relationship with Hassan. She's wants to be single and isn't going to jump into something. She's hanging out with ASAP Rocky, but she is not dating him."
Rihanna and A$AP became friends after he served as an opening act on her Diamonds world tour in 2013.
Last year, the two hit the red carpet together at the Fashion Awards in London.
