Rihanna spotted with A$AP Rocky after split from billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel, sparks dating rumors
Rihanna has a new man! Well, maybe.
The singer was spotted getting cozy with old friend and rapper A$AP Rocky at the 2020 Yams Day Benefit Concert on January 17, the same day it was reported that she had ended her nearly three-year relationship with boyfriend Hassan Jameel.
Though they had never made it official by publically appearing together, Rihanna spoke about her relationship with Jameel in 2019 when speaking with Interview Magazine, saying she was in love but had no plans for marriage. She also mentioned she wanted to be a mother "more than anything in life".
Fans began speculating about whether Rihanna was pregnant when she recently appeared at the British Fashion Awards. However, it appears they should have been paying closer attention to who she was posing with than how her outfit appeared, as the singer was seen posing with several celebrities — including rumored boyfriend A$AP Rocky.
The two artists have known each other for a long time and have been linked romantically on several occasions.
A$AP Rocky quashed rumours of them being together back in 2013, saying, "I don't even look at her like that. She's sexy, but I'm good." The rapper also revealed early in 2019 that he was in a committed relationship with a model, while Rihanna was confirmed to be exclusively dating Jameel.
Nonetheless, the two once again have fans speculating if they are dating, now that Rihanna is single. Sources claim the two have been spending time together but that the singer wants to keep it casual following her recent split.
Rihanna was expected to make an appearance at the Grammys this year but was absent for the second year in a row despite being in Los Angeles for the Roc Nation Brunch, which was attended by fellow absentees Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
Late in 2019, Rihanna teased some new music saying her ninth album was ready for release, indicating that her being in the studio might be why she chose not to attend the Grammys this year.
