Is it splitsville for would-be parents Rihanna and A$AP Rocky?
Have Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky split? A viral rumor suggests that the power couple has broken up after the singer learned that A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Athelaston Mayers, was cheating on her. A social media user claimed that Mayers cheated on Rihanna with footwear designer, Amina Muaddi. This comes after Rihanna and Mayers announced their pregnancy back in January.
Why does this story matter?
In a recent interview with Vogue, Rihanna spoke very highly of Mayers and their relationship. "I certainly took a while to get over how much I know him and how much he knows me, because we also know how much trouble we can land each other in," she said, adding that she prefers "transparency" over "love." So in that light, this rumor assumes significance.
What was the viral post all about?
The bomb was dropped by Louis Roma, an influencer and fashion commentator. Roma claimed that "Rihanna & A$AP Rocky have split. Rihanna broke up with him after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi." "Amina was responsible for designing Fenty's footwear offering and Rihanna is often seen in custom shoes from her own label," the handle further mentioned.
