ASAP Rocky sparked rumours he would be spending Christmas with Rihanna - as he jetted into Barbados. Photographed arriving in the singer's home country on a commercial flight on Tuesday, ASAP - real name Rakim Mayers - was seen in the airport wearing a white T-shirt, patterned trousers and a face mask.

Rihanna, 32, was herself seen travelling to the Caribbean nation last week, although the Umbrella singer took a private jet.

Since then the two have been seen enjoying quiet dinner dates around New York.
