Rihanna is moving on with her love life after splitting from her ex, Saudi Billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel, earlier this year.
The makeup mogul broke up with the business heir after three years of dating. Rihanna is reportedly dating rapper A$AP Rocky, a longtime friend who opened for her on the U.S. leg of her Diamonds World Tour in 2013. They also worked together on the remix of RiRi’s “Cockiness (Love It)” in 2011.
For months, rumors have been swirling about the two 32-year-old entertainers being in a relationship, but until now, there was nothing concrete to confirm the information.
However, they were spotted enjoying dinner with friends at Angie Mar‘s Beatrice Inn restaurant in New York over the weekend.
According to PEOPLE and Page Six, the outing in such a popular space takes the dating chatter to a different level.
It needs to be said, rumors about the music stars being together have gone on and off for years, and they always had a lot of chemistry.
The Barbadian native recently hired the hip-hop talent for her Fenty Skin campaign; the duo even did several promotional interviews together.
When asked about the hardest part about working with Rihanna in a GQ video, the “Praise the Lord (Da Shine)” artist replied with: “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.”
Most fans are rooting for the pair to make it work; some are even talking about them getting married and having babies. However, a small minority is sad that one of Rihanna’s famous exes, Drake, is no longer in the picture.
This cheerful supporter pointed out, “They’re best friends; that’s the best way to start off a relationship. Good for them 💖.”
Another backer added, “I’ve always known they were having something on the low. She’s very slick and discreet, and I like it… every relationship is not for social media!”
A critic opted to bring back the rapper’s past statements about Black women, “All the smack he talked about a black woman and black peoples in general? Nah, it couldn’t be me.”
Rocky has previously dated Brazilian model Daiane Sodré, Kendall Jenner, Chanel Iman, and Australian rapper Iggy Azalea.
