Is Rihanna dating A$AP Rocky?
Rihanna is reportedly getting cosy with rapper A$AP Rocky.
The “Diamonds” hitmaker – who ended her relationship with on/off boyfriend Chris Brown earlier this year – seems to have moved on after being spotted getting close to the “Long Live A$AP” star at Alexander Wang’s New York Fashion Week after party on Saturday night (07.09.13).
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “They were talking really closely and bodyguards were stationed all around them so no one could get pictures.”
Rihanna, 25, also appeared to shun fans hoping to meet her at the event in favour of spending time with the 24-year-old rapper.
According to an onlooker, Rihanna told fellow revellers: “I’m just chilling, I’m too f***ed up and drunk, no pictures.”
The singer and A$AP have been friends for some time, with the rapper appearing on a remix of her song ‘Cockiness’ in 2012, but they have become closer in recent months after he joined Rihanna on her ‘Diamonds’ world tour as a support act.
A$AP has previously romanced Rihanna’s pal, rapper Iggy Azalea, and model Chanel Iman, while Rihanna and Chris – who was convicted of assaulting the star in 2009 – called off their controversial relationship for a second time in May.
However, the Barbados-born singer’s new beau has a chequered past of his own.
In July 2012, A$AP was arrested for allegedly assaulting a man in a New York City clothing store, as well as two photographers who captured the incident.
