Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s love saga continues with sources claiming the superstars are officially dating again.
The musicians were reportedly seen enjoying a dinner date at the Beatrice Inn in West Village, New York on Saturday and were joined by a group of friends, according to Page Six.
A source has since told People that Rihanna and A$AP, both 32, are indeed a couple in the early stages of their relationship.
The pair were first romantically linked earlier this year following Rihanna’s split from boyfriend Hassan Jameel, who she dated for three years.
A source told The Sun in January that the pair met up on a trip to New York, with an insider claiming ‘they shared a hotel suite’.
They added: ‘However, Rihanna is reluctant to put a label on it as it’s so soon after Hassan. They’re really enjoying each other’s company and taking things easy as it’s still early days.’
Another source confused the situation by then describing Rihanna as single, explaining that the Love On The Brain singer wasn’t ready for another committed relationship after her split from Hassan.

They told E!: ‘ She just got out of a long intense relationship with Hassan. She wants to be single and isn’t going to jump into something. She’s hanging out with ASAP Rocky, but she is not dating him.
‘They have a long history and she’s just having fun.’
Over the summer, they reignited the rumours after A$AP appeared in campaigns for Rihanna’s Fenty Skin brand.
They then interviewed each other for a series with GQ and Vogue and their chemistry was sizzling.
During their flirty exchange, A$AP said: ‘I think the hardest part about working with you is not goofin’ off and laughing the whole time. Like this s**t is comedy.
‘That’s the hardest part. You know, people be so cool it’s hard not to, not to laugh. That’s all. But it was fun. The hardest part is not having too much fun. You just forget that it’s still work at the end of the day.’
Rihanna also joked: ‘My skin type is just as complicated as men are. Y’all always try to say women are complicated [but] it’s y’all!’
Their friendship goes all the way back to 2013 when A$AP, real name Rakim Mayers, performed as the opening act on Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour. They also shared the red carpet together at the Louis Vuitton fashion show in 2018 and again last year at The Fashion Awards in London.
