I think we all can admit that if the dreamy ASAP Rocky is perfect for anyone other than ourselves, it would be the queen Rihanna. Imagining the fire outfits and albums make it clear that the couple is a match made in heaven. For years, romance rumors have been swirling about these icons since their first collaboration in 2012. But it wasn’t until recently that we got any proof of the pair being an item.
The singers were seen getting cozy on a late-night stroll earlier this month in NYC. According to People, a source claims, “They’ve been inseparable the past few weeks.” the insider said, “It’s a new relationship, but they both seem very into it.”
Rihanna is recently single
In January of this year, Rihanna split from her billionaire boyfriend of almost three years, Hassan Jameel. Sources close to the star have told People that “Their lives were too different, and it was hard to maintain a relationship.” When talking about ASAP, the source had a very different view. “They’ve always seemed to have a great time together, they have a lot in common.”
ASAP Rocky and Rihanna have a lot of similarities
ASAP and Rihanna share a similar lifestyle and a love for community service. “They both are very much about helping out in the communities where they grew up,” a source shared with People. “ASAP is generous and so is Rihanna, ASAP is known for being a great guy.” A homeless shelter in Harlem that ASAP and his mother stayed at in the early 2000s received 120 meals from the rapper in October. As for Rihanna, she founded the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012. The foundation helps Rihanna’s home country of Barbados raise money for emergency response and education programs.
Not only do the 32-year-olds share a similar lifestyle, but they also share a love of music. Their friendship started back in 2012 with their collaboration on Rihanna’s track “Cockiness (Love It).” Their friendship continued as just a year later, the pair toured together. That same year, Rihanna served as ASAP’s muse in his “Fashion Killa” music video. The two have also recently worked together on a Fenty Skin campaign that launched this summer.
A friend of the stars recently shared with Us Weekly that “ASAP has been very into Rihanna for years.” This source also claims that Rihanna has always “brushed off his advances and kept him in the friend zone.” The Diamonds singer seemed to have had a change of heart as their platonic relationship that has lasted for eight years has now become a romantic one.
