A Timeline Of A$AP Rocky And Rihanna’s Relationship

Of all celebs, Rihanna might be the biggest enigma. She seems like an open book in interviews, but then details about her life emerge that nobody would have suspected, and it’s like we are meeting her for the first time. 

She has recently been linked to rapper A$AP Rocky, and there have been very few details in the media about their relationship. There are still some people who are not sure that the pair are romantically involved at all. 

We decided to take a look at their relationship timeline to see if we could make heads or tails of the couple.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky first met in 2021 when they collaborated on a song for Rihanna’s ‘Talk That Talk’ album. The song was a huge success, and many people are still listening to it today. 

However, at the time, there were no rumors that the two might be romantically linked, even though the song was one of a sexual nature. The pair had a successful working relationship, but it seems that it ended there.

In 2013, Rihanna went on tour for her album and invited A$AP Rocky to join her to perform their song on stage together during the tour. A$AP accepted, and the two went on tour together. 

While their performances of the song were steamy on stage, there were still no dating rumors at the time, and it seemed that there was an understanding that while they had chemistry, their relationship was strictly professional.

In 2018, we started to see Rihanna and A$AP in a different light when they were seen at a Louis Vuitton fashion show together in June. The pair seemed very cozy and looked like they were well on the way to becoming an official couple. 

Several months later, Rihanna invites A$AP to her annual diamond ball, and he attends. He seems ecstatic to be in attendance, and the dating rumors become even more rampant after people see the photos.

In 2019, A$AP once again attended Rihanna’s diamond ball after dating rumors died down a little. However, seeing him there sparked the rumors up again, and this time, they were not going anywhere. 

In December of 2019, the pair had fans convinced that they were an item when they attended the British Fashion Awards in London together. They posed for photos together and looked incredible.

In 2020, Rihanna officially called things off with her boyfriend, who not many people even knew about. This is when the dating rumors really started to take flight on the internet, with millions of people speculating on the relationship. 

However, a source close to the couple confirmed that their relationship was casual. Their relationship progressed quite quickly tough, and by December of 2020, the pair spent the Christmas period together in Rihanna’s hometown of Barbados.

This year, the couple has been linked more than ever, supporting each other’s businesses on social media and being seen on dates together. The couple had not confirmed or denied any dating rumors.

However, recently A$AP Rocky confirmed their relationship telling an interviewer that Rihanna was the love of his life. We hope to see the couple posting much more about their relationship soon.
