Could all those longstanding romance rumors actually be true? Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are reportedly “dating,” according to a report from PEOPLE that surfaced on Nov. 30! HollywoodLife has reached out to both Rihanna’s and A$AP Rocky’s reps for comment. The outlet’s source didn’t disclose further details, although this headline-making report arrived on the same day of another one.
The 32-year-old music artists were apparently seen “having dinner with friends at the Beatrice Inn in New York” and “were seated discreetly behind a curtain” inside the upscale restaurant on Nov. 28, two days after Thanksgiving, per Page Six.
There has been heavy speculation surrounding Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s close relationship, however, since Jan. 2020. This is when RiRi reportedly split from her boyfriend of nearly three years, billionaire Hassan Jameel — on the very same day the breakup report surfaced, Rihanna was seen hanging out with none other than A$AP Rocky at the Yams Day Benefit Concert in New York City!
At the time, we learned that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were just friends (as they had been for years). “Rihanna is good friends with Rocky,” a friend of Rihanna’s EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife at the beginning of 2020, adding, “They have met up many times over the past year to hang out but suddenly people are paying attention and looking to turn it into something more. They have a long history of hanging out and are very good friends and will continue to be. They aren’t dating though, she isn’t interested in another relationship right now, she’s still getting over Hassan.” However, the dating rumors persisted when the friends were spotted having a dinner date at The Nice Guy in Los Angeles in February.
