The whether outside might be frightful, but that didn’t stop Rihanna and A$AP Rocky from enjoying a walk in New York City on the evening of December 2! The rapper, 32, and “Needed Me” songstress, also 32, were spotted wearing plenty of layers in the Big Apple during their walk. Both superstars went for a casual, comfortable look, with Rihanna fashioning a mostly monochromatic white outfit, while A$AP Rocky wore plenty of camouflage, WHICH YOU CAN SEE HERE.

Both artists wore face masks to keep themselves and fellow New Yorkers safe amid the growing rise in coronavirus cases nationwide. There was very little evidence of any PDA, whatsoever, as the two simply enjoyed some quality time together. But the photos come after more fans wonder if the two are actually a new couple.

After years of will they, won’t they speculation from fans, longtime admirers of the two music moguls seemingly got their answer with a report that surfaced on November 30. The report detailed that the two are, reportedly, “dating.” This report was followed by another that seemingly elaborated on fans’ suspicions.

The two were seemingly spotted “having dinner with friends at the Beatrice Inn in New York” and “were seated discreetly behind a curtain,” the secondary report detailed. The re-energized speculation comes nearly one year after Rihanna split from her partner of three years, billionaire Hassan Jameel, in January 2020. Following her breakup, the Savage X Fenty mogul was seen spending some time with A$AP Rocky in New York City!

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been friends for years, as both have really come into their own as artists in the music industry at the same time. They even go as far back as 2013, when A$AP Rocky was the opening act for Rihanna’s U.S. performances during the March- May stretch of her Diamonds World Tour. Rihanna also co-starred with the rapper in his music video for “Fashion Killa” that same year.

By the end of January 2020, just weeks after Rihanna’s split from Hassan, HollywoodLife learned EXCLUSIVELY that A$AP Rocky and Rihanna were still just very good friends. “They have met up many times over the past year to hang out but suddenly people are paying attention and looking to turn it into something more. They have a long history of hanging out and are very good friends and will continue to be.”
