Talia Morley, Staff Writer

Lately, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been under the spotlight with a lot of drama. Starting with breaking up rumors to the arrest of A$AP Rocky, this story adresses what is going on with them.

Last week, rumors were released that A$AP Rocky cheated on his pregnant girlfriend Rihanna, and they broke up. These rumors arose when fashion influencer, Louis Pisano said, “Rihanna and ASAP Rocky have split. Rihanna broke up with him after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi,” on his twitter account. Shortly after these rumors were released, shoe designer Amina Muaddi posted to Instagram denying these allegations.

According to the Daily Mail,it said Amina Muaddi wrote, “I’ve always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media doesn’t deserve any response or clarification, especially one that is so vile. I initially assumed that this fake gossip – fabricated with such malicious intent – would not be taken seriously. However in the last 24h I’ve been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to speak on topics regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits. Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated times in one’s life. Therefore I have to speak up as this not only directed towards me but it is related to people I have a great amount of respect and affection for.”

In her statement, Amina Muaddi explains that she shouldn’t be publicly addressing that the rumors are false because people on social media always create fake news to create interest and drama. She said that people are so quick to speak on rumors and spread them even if false, which is why she publicly addressed that she was not having an affair with A$AP Rocky.

Following the statement from Amina Muaddi addressing the cheating allegations, some friends of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky come forward and also deny the rumors of their break up.

Regarding these rumors, Daily Mail said, “A source directly connected to both artists had earlier told TMZ that the cheating and split rumors were ‘100% false on both counts’, adding ‘one million percent not true. They’re fine.”

Other sources directly connected to the couple also addressed that the rumors were false. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are still together, and thriving in their relationship, and the cheating and breakup rumors are completely false.

While these rumors were surfacing, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were at the Islands of Barbados enjoying their vacation. Returning from the islands on Wednesday April 20, 2022, they flew back in their private plane, and when they landed at the Los Angeles International Airport, A$AP Rocky was arrested.

At the time of the arrest, Rihanna was right next to A$AP Rocky. The LAPD issued a search warrant for A$AP Rocky’s home, and he was arrested for being the suspect in a Nov. 6 shooting near Vista Del Mar and Selma Avenue in Los Angeles, California. Police say the shooting took place after a heated argument occurred between two acquaintances.

Addressing why A$AP Rocky got arrested, Abc7 wrote, “Mayers is accused of firing a handgun at an acquaintance, who sustained a minor injury and later sought medical treatment, police said. Mayers and two other men ran after the gunfire, police said.”

A$AP Rocky was booked at 12:42 P.M. on Wednesday April 20, 2022. According to the LAPD, his bond was $550,000, and he was released three hours later with a court date set for Aug. 17, 2022.

The couple has not publicly stated anything about the arrest. Following the arrest, the couple held their baby shower on April 22, 2022 and it was rave themed.

Mixmag said,” This reportedly involved asking guests to wear their brightest coloured neon outfits for the party — they also gave out late-90s styled colorful T-shirts which called the party a “rave shower”.”

The baby shower was a private party hosted in Hollywood, Ca. The couple wanted to keep the party extremely private so they restricted photos, videos and all cell phones were locked away during the party. There was no official registry and the couple stated they just wanted to be surrounded by their close friends and family. At the baby shower, guests were issued T-shirts that said, “Rih and Rocky Rave Shower” on the front, and on the back, the shirt read, “I Went To Rih & Rocky’s Rave Shower And All I Got Was This Amazing Shirt.”

Days after the private rave themed baby shower, on April 28, a British mother claims that A$AP Rocky has been secretly messaging her just weeks after the cheating rumors were denied.

Daily Mail wrote, “The Sun have claimed that a woman named Jilly O’Donnell, 45, was contacted by someone who appears to be the rapper, 33, on Instagram, where he ‘bombarded her with flirty messages.”

The British mother Jill said they began messaging in December 2021, and that A$AP Rocky asked her to meet up in Ukraine, telling her he can make arrangements for her to be able to attend this trip.

Daily mail said, “In a message purported to be from the rapper, he wrote: ‘I’m down, would you be down to meet me in Ukraine? If I sort it out I could arrange for u to be there when I get there.’”

The message above was sent in December, but Jill claims she is still in contact with rapper A$AP Rocky. Once again, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have not said anything about this situation. To read more information about the relationship of A$AP Rocky and Rihanna visit my past story: Rihanna Is Pregnant!
