Months after heating up the Internet by grabbing onto Rihanna’s butt during an awards show, New York rapper A$AP Rocky has once again stepped forward to clear the air on his status with RiRi.
Despite the ever-lasting steamy speculation, Rocky insisted RiRi is nothing more than a good friend.
“Yeah I expected people to say that me and Rihanna were sleeping around. We’re just cool,” Rocky told MTV News while out on the set for A$AP Ferg’s “Work” remix video on April 10. “Man dudes be tryin’ to front like they tappin’ Rihanna’s [anatomy] and all that, but they don’t be hittin’ it.” “That’s really a friend. She supports me, man. She’s bringing me out, she ain’t have to do that. That girl came to my Coachella a year ago. I got nothing but love for Rih Rih, that’s the homey right there,” he continued. “I ain’t tryin’ to get in no trouble with no Rihanna rumors because I’m not f—in’ Rihanna. That’s somebody’s elses.” (MTV)
Earlier this month, rumors scattered the ‘net which claimed RiRi dumped reunited boyfriend Chris Brown for the Harlem emcee.
MediaTakeOut.com just got OFFICIAL confirmation this morning that Rihanna has a new boyfriend . . and we’re told that the two are “VERY SERIOUS.” Her new boyfriend is . . .A$AP ROCKY!!! According to a ROCK SOLID MTO INSIDER, A$AP and Rihanna have been on tour together now for about a month – and they’ve FALLEN IN LOVE!!! The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, “This isn’t some fling, they’re in love . . . cuddling, hanging out, everything.” The insider continued, “I’ve never seen Rihanna so happy – even happier than when she was with Chris.” (MTO)
Last fall, Rocky spoke on his now-infamous squeeze on the eye-catching crooner.
“I didn’t mean for the ass grab to be the thing. I don’t fiend for fake publicity sh*t. I’m just a trill n*gga. [Laughs.] Rihanna is what I want to be, as far as having a big core following. She’s very successful. She’s been doing it for years. Think about it. “Pon de Replay”…. So ’05, ’06, ’07, ’08, ’09, ’10, ’11, ’12…. She’s got seven years in this sh*t. Shout-outs to that young lady, and hopefully, with the grace of God, seven years from now, I can say the same.” (Complex)
In February, rumors also emerged about Rocky possibly dating a Victoria’s Secret model.
Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman may have found a new boo. And it looks like rapper A$AP Rocky may just be her newest conquest. Beautiful 22-year-old Chanel Iman posted a pic on her Instagram that caught everybody off guard. She said “VERY RARE”while holding hands with 24-year-old rapper A$AP Rocky hugged up while rocking matching Jordans. Wonder what this is all about? Both of them have a serious love for fashion. Chanel’s a fashion and beauty model, while A$AP has talked endlessly about his love for designers clothes and his eclectic style. The two could have been just having simply a friendly fashion bonding moment during NY Fashion Week. (Gossip Daily)
