Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, both 32, basically confirmed their romance on Dec. 24, when they were pictured packing on PDA in public while in Barbados together. The new couple held hands while walking around the singer’s home island of Barbados just before celebrating the holidays together. It was a big milestone for their fresh romance, but her family was totally fine with A$AP accompanying her on her trip back home.
“The trip is going so well — it could not be going any better,” a source close to Rihanna told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “[A$AP Rocky] fits in perfectly with her family and friends. It’s a big relief for Rihanna because her family does tend to be very protective of her. They’re all very genuine and humble people, so the fact that Rocky wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth plays in his favor. Plus, his intentions with her are very sincere, and everyone can see how much he cares about her. That’s all that really matters to Rihanna’s family. Obviously, it’s still too soon to say where this relationship will go, but it’s exciting for everyone that she’s taken the step to bring him home for the holidays.”
They may not be moving towards marriage just yet, but it sounds like Rihanna and A$AP could be leaning that way soon if things keep going well. In fact, a second source close to the couple told us, “Rihanna and A$AP are so down to earth and the times they have been hanging out with each other has been very genuine and fun. They both have similar interests. They have a lot of the same friends and they can both trust each other in a world were their celebrity could intimidate matters. They just really get each other and still get to do their own thing. Its a pretty great relationship because it is surrounded by such a great friendship.”
Speculation of a romance between Rihanna and A$AP Rocky started after they were seen enjoying a cozy dinner together in Manhattan on Nov. 30. This new romance with A$AP comes less than one year after Rihanna broke up with her boyfriend of three years, Hassan Jameel, in January 2020.
HollywoodLife reached out to both Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s reps for comment, but we did not receive a response.
