Proving they’ve been flirty friends for a decade, A$AP joined Rihanna on stage for a performance of her song “Cockiness (Love It)” back in 2012, playfully grabbing her ass at the end of his verse before she pushed him away.
In an interview, A$AP, who was dating model Chanel Iman at the time, denied rumors that he was dating Rihanna. "I'm just cool with her. I don't even look at her like that. She's sexy, but I'm good," he said. "That's really a friend...I got nothing but love for Rih Rih; that's the homey right there.”
Months later, they attended a private party at Delilah in LA. The night was going well, with the duo spotted laughing and holding hands, but an unexpected ex shook things up. Drake was reportedly there too, and according to an insider, he and Rocky were “not vibing.”
Rih and A$AP enjoyed a classic night out on the town in NYC, getting photographed by paps and carded at Barcade. Rih apparently forgot her ID, and A$AP was seen arguing with security in her defense. The two eventually were let inside and enjoyed a PDA-filled evening.
Photos of the couple from that night show that Rihanna had covered up the matching shark tattoo she got with Drake — and with that, confirmed their on-again, off-again relationship is finally a thing of the past.
