Professionally known as A$AP Rocky, rapper and actor Rakim Athelaston Mayers, 32, of Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, United States is dating singer and actress Robyn Rihanna Fenty, 33. Mononymously called Rihanna, the latter is originally from Bridgetown, Barbados.
“(Rihanna) is the love of my life,” Rocky told GQ. “(She is) my lady.”
When asked what it was like to be in a relationship, Rocky told the publication that it is “so much better when you got the one.” For him, Rihanna “amounts to probably like a million of the other ones.”
“I think when you know, you know,” Rocky continued. “She’s the one.”
Rocky did not reveal when his romance with Rihanna started. She was in a relationship with Hassan Jameel, 32, of Saudi Arabia from April 2017 to January 2020.
On December 2, 2019, Rocky and Rihanna walked the British Fashion Awards red carpet together at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England. A month later, it was announced that she and Jameel broke up.
On September 6, 2012, Rihanna performed “Cockiness (Remix)” with Rocky at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA. From March 8, 2013 to May 7, 2012, he was the opening act of her Diamonds World Tour in various venues in the U.S. and Canada.
In December 2020, Rihanna and Rocky spent Christmas together in Barbados. It was like a homecoming visit for him.
Originally from Barbados, Rocky’s late father Adrian “Duke” Mayers emigrated to the U.S. When Mayers died in 2012, Rihanna took to Twitter to offer her condolences.
Since Rihanna released her eighth studio album “ANTI” on January 28, 2016, she has yet to release her ninth one. On March 27, 2020, she and Jahron Anthony “PartyNextDoor” Brathwaite, 27, of Canada released their collaboration song “Believe It,” the fourth single from the third studio album of the latter.
On the other hand, Rocky’s third studio album “Testing” was released on May 25, 2018. He is set to release his fourth studio album “All Smiles” in June 2021.
