- Rihanna was seen hanging with A $ AP Rocky on Friday night.
- This comes after reports that Rihanna and Hassan Jameel were divided after dating for three years.
Let me start by saying that it is entirely possible for men and women to be friends, and just because two people are hanging out does not mean that they embark on something or something romantic or sexual going on between them. But it won't stop me / the internet from pointing out that Rihanna has spent time with the very handsome and talented A $ AP Rocky since reportedly shared by Hassan Jameel, her boyfriend of three years.
Us weekly reports that RiRi on Friday night smiled and laughed while hanging out with A $ AP Rocky backstage at the Yams Day Benefit concert in Brooklyn, New York. The outlet also points out that Rihanna and Rocky have a bit of a history, as they were seen kissing "off the screen" in 2013 while filming a music video together.
However, the two also seem to be friends and were seen hanging out during Paris Fashion Week in June 2019:
He attended her Diamond Ball in September 2019:
And they also joined the red carpet at The Fashion Awards in London in December 2019:
So, it is very possible that absolutely nothing happens between them and they are just friends! In addition, Rihanna is very private about her personal life, so it's unlikely that she or A $ AP Rocky will comment on whether or not a cast is happening. We still don't even know why Rihanna and Hassan reportedly broke up or when it happened – the Rihanna / Rocky observation came just hours after news broke about the Rihanna / Hassan split, so it's still very unclear when the couple called it quits.
Either way, if Rihanna is happy, I'm happy for her – and selfishly hope that everything that goes down in her love life inspires some new music! 🙃
