Rihanna and the ‘Fucking Problems’ rapper were 'seated discreetly behind a curtain' having dinner two days after Thanksgiving
Is Rihanna dating long-time friend ASAP Rocky? Sources of People seem sure that the couple is dating after they were spotted having a night out in New York. The ‘Diamonds’ singer was reportedly spotted with the rapper along with a group of friends at the Beatrice Inn on Saturday, November 28 night. Rihanna and the ‘Fucking Problems’ rapper were seated discreetly behind a curtain, having dinner two days after Thanksgiving.
Rumors of the duo being together started in January after Rihanna split with three years long boyfriend billionaire Hassan Jameel. After this, the ‘Only Girl (In the World)’ singer featured ASAP Rocky in her new gender-neutral skincare line, Fenty Skin campaign. The duo were also found doing several interviews together to promote the campaign. In the promotional videos for Vogue and GQ, Rihanna was found in a candid conversation with the rapper opening up about why their campaign was important to promote gender-neutral skin line where the rapper said, growing up he didn’t find a male beauty icon who talked about skincare of men.
Earlier in a Sun report, a source revealed that the duo were sharing a room during a visit to New York, but that “Rihanna [was] reluctant to put a label on it... so soon after Hassan [Jameel].” The source added, “they’re really enjoying each other’s company and taking things easy as it’s still early days” and “It’s really casual between them and she’s not thinking about whether there’s a future with Rocky. She’s a newly-single girl having fun.” The duo were also spotted together in Red Carpet at the British Fashion Awards in December, last year.
The dating rumors of the duo have also fanned old flames. The two close friends were first heard to be dating in 2013 where the 32-year-old rapper opened for Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ world tour and once again in 2015 when Rihanna split from Chanel Imam. The duo have been friends for a long time where they have done multiple collaborations, world tours, the latest being the Fenty Skin campaign that the ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ singer is passionate about. In their flirty GQ interview, Rihanna said, "Men love their skin and they take care of it but they feel obligated almost to only use products that are for men because anything beyond that seems like it's just too feminine," and the rapper chimed in talking how skincare should be more inclusive stating, "I wish it was more versatility, diversity, obviously you know," he said. "I think it's kinda trying to evolve especially with a person like yourself. But I do wish that there was way more versatility."
In the GQ interview, the rapper also jokingly talked about the hardest part about working with ‘Rude Boy’ Riri stating, "I think the hardest part about working with you is not goofin’ off and laughing the whole time," he said. "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."
