RIHANNA. Singer Rihanna has announced she’s expecting her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky, with whom she shares an overhyped history. Since then, the couple has been the subject of media overexposure.
[Mis à jour le 15 avril 2022 à 10h58] When your name is Rihanna, it’s hard to keep your private life…private. When the singer announces she’s pregnant with rapper A$AP Rocky, with whom she shares her life, the whole planet gets involved. Rihanna, used to the media game, will then have staged a paparazzade in early February to show off her baby bump to the world public.
Several public appearances followed, organized, round belly (very) noticeable. On Instagram, where the singer has around 126 million subscribers, she mixes magazine cover shots, like this week’s Vogue, with more private photos. But always the visible stomach. It must be said that Rihanna’s pregnancy rumors have been counted in tens for years.
So, as rumors of a split between the star couple following an alleged deception by rapper A$AP Rocky surge on Twitter this Friday, April 15, it’s bound to have thousands of netizens commenting on this information again, so it’s about time, was not confirmed by Rihanna or A$AP Rocky. The rumour, published by a “fashion influencer”, has since become one of the most discussed topics of the morning on the social network, with almost 700,000 tweets. Of course, this rumor doesn’t have any solid basis, and the social media frenzy over these allegations shows just how much the smallest rumor about Rihanna’s personal life can provoke misplaced oddities. No solid source is able to provide information on this subject, which is also very personal and would be the subject of explanations from the main stakeholders.
“I just feel like I can get through anything with him by my side.” Pregnant Rihanna is in the spotlight of Vogue magazine, which publishes a series of photos taken by famous photographer Annie Leibovitz at the Ritz in Paris. The singer showed off her baby bump and opened up about her pregnancy and her relationship with rapper A$AP Rocky, with whom she has shared her life for over a year and is therefore expecting her first child.
“He became my family during incarceration,” Rihanna tells Vogue. There is no arrogance between us, no comparison between his image and mine. We just live. I just feel like I can live anything with him by my side.”
The 33-year-old A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was born on October 3, 1988 in the New York borough of Harlem. Rap occupies a special place in his life. If this genre of music allowed him to become a worldwide star, above all it allowed him to cope with the murder of his big brother and the death of his sister after an overdose.
But it wasn’t until 2012, after the death of his father, that he devoted his heart and soul to rap. First with ASAP Mob, then solo. In 2016, the one who conquered the trash cans emerged in the fashion world and became the face of Dior. The following year, he teamed up with Guess. A true American rap icon, he is now invited to Fashion Week and the mythical MET Gala.
Her Vogue cover is also an opportunity for the star to confide in her new album, her ninth, which is desperately awaited by her fans. “I imagine my next project very differently than I had imagined before. I think it suits me better, much better. It’s authentic, it’s going to be fun and it releases a lot of pressure,” he explains to Rihanna, who won’t give any further hints about this new project…
Rumors have been circulating for several months. It’s official since the beginning of February: Rihanna is pregnant, as shown by a series of photos that have been circulated in many American media. We then spotted in these pictures the couple exchanging a kiss and walking the streets of Harlem, New York… But the detail that inevitably catches the eye was Rihanna’s pink coat, open on her round stomach.
Until this true/false paparazzade, the news of Rihanna’s pregnancy was kept secret despite the many rumors that had been circulating for several months. On her Instagram account, the singer from Barbados has not stopped posting pictures of her more or less clothed, without showing a baby bump.
And with good reason, according to the tabloid Page Six, just hours before the famous photos were published, Rihanna announced her pregnancy to her father, Ronald Fenty. “She warned me on Sunday evening and sent me photos. I’m in heaven,” the future grandfather explains to the American media.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been in a relationship since December 2020.
