The Anti singer was pictured with the rapper last night (January 17), just hours after new was revealed Rihanna and her longtime boyfriend Hassan Jameel had supposedly called it quits. Per an Us Weekly report, Rihanna and A$AP were apparently photographed “smiling and laughing” with each other during their night out in New York City.
It’s nothing new for the stars, who were recently pictured together on the Fashion Awards red carpet just in December. As fans will recall, the “Love on the Brain” songbird was once thought to have dated the “Chewing Gum” emcee in 2013 after reports alleged the pair snuck in a kiss in between filming the music video for Rocky’s song “Fashion Killa.”
Albeit a romance has yet been confirmed, the outing does have interesting timing considering the songstress’ breakup with Jameel is still so fresh. The "What's My Name" artist was reportedly in a committed three-year relationship with the 31-year-old billionaire, with whom she was first linked up in June 2017. Back then, outlets suggested the “Work” vocalist and her boo were rumored to have “been hooking up for a few months” before making it official.
What’s more, Jameel and Rihanna still seemed to be going strong up until late last year. “Rihanna and Hassan understand each other very well and their personalities mesh well together,” an insider revealed to Us last September.“They’re both so different, but it works for them.” A month prior to the report, the duo were spotted giving the cameras some PDA while enjoying dinner with the vocalist's family in Santa Monica. “They were there for a good few hours of the night until dark. At one point, Rihanna and Hassan were arm in arm,” a source revealed at the time.
As revealed in a June 2019 Elle interview, Rihanna dished on possibly wedding the Saudi businessman. When asked about marriage plans, Rih told actress Sarah Paulson, “Only God knows that, girl. We plan and God laughs, right?”
