A$AP Rocky has officially confirmed his relationship with Rihanna, more than a year after dating rumours first surfaced.
In a recent interview with GQ, the rapper confirmed the relationship for the first time, speaking fondly and openly of his girlfriend.
“It’s a whole lot smoother until you’ve found The One. She’s probably the same as a million of the others “‘I told the paper,’ he said. “I believe that if you know, you know. She’s the one you’ve been looking for.”
Rihanna was referred to as “my lady” and “the love of my life” by the 32-year-old in other parts of the interview.
Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, also revealed that he plans to have children in the future.
He said, “If that’s in my destiny, totally.” “I believe I will make an awesome, remarkable, and all-around amazing father. I’d have a really feisty boy. Extremely.”
When Rihanna, 33, split from her three-year relationship with Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel in January 2020, the two were related for the first time.
In July, Rihanna asked Rocky to star in her Fenty Skin campaign video for Vogue, and the two began flirting.
They were also spotted vacationing in Rocky was pictured with Rihanna in Barbados during Christmas last year.
“They’ve always had amazing chemistry,” a source told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “Rihanna relates to A$AP and it feels natural, easy, and fun.” “She’s at ease with him because they’ve known each other for so long, and she also feels a bond to him because his father is from Barbados.”
Rocky and Rihanna, on the other hand, have been friends for years, dating back to when he appeared on her song “Cockiness” in 2011. In 2013, he also agreed to join her Diamonds World Tour as a support act. They’ve also accompanied each other to industry events over the years, including the Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris in 2018, where they sat together in the front row.
