Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have confirmed they are dating, according to reports. The Diamonds singer and her longtime friend, both 32, are said to have enjoyed a dinner together at the Beatrice Inn, New York, with a group of friends on Saturday night. The rumoured couple were "seated behind a curtain" so they were out of view, according to Page Six. A PEOPLE source has claimed the famous musicians are in a romantic relationship after they were seen together on the night out. Rihanna and A$AP, real name Rakim Mayers, have a history having worked together in the past. She featured the rapper in her Fenty Skin campaign back in July and they did joint interviews with Vogue and GQ to promote the range.
It seems the pair get on well thanks to their friendship, as the rapper told her in a GQ video at the time: "I think the hardest part about working with you is not goofin' off and laughing the whole time. Like this s*** 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."
The news comes after Rihanna split from her ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel in January. The pair fuelled romance speculation after they were spotted hanging out together in New York - the same day the news broke about her break-up from Hassan. A source told The Sun back in January: "They shared a hotel suite during that trip in New York. 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."
The rapper served as an opening act for the US dates of Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour in 2013.
