A bouncer refused to give entry to Rihanna and A$AP Rocky to a club as she didn’t have any ID on her.
Wearing a pink dress and fluffy hat, the mega pop star was seen standing in line at the bar in New York City with boyfriend A$AP Rocky. Upon getting to the front of the line, the bouncer clearly was unimpressed that the singer didn’t have any ID on her.
A$AP Rocky was obviously irritated that despite Rihanna being a household name, she wasn’t allowed entry into the club. If Rihanna can’t get into the club, then nobody can!
It’s clear they eventually got let in somewhere, with TMZ posting photos of them inside SoHo’s popular Barcade bar.
A$AP Rocky and Rihanna only went public with their relationship at the end of last month, however, the photos seem to prove that the relationship is going well. There have been rumors the pair were dating ever since A$AP supported Rihanna on her Diamonds World Tour all the way back in 2013. She has appeared in A$AP’s 2013 video for “Fashion Killa” and the rapper also provided a verse for Rihanna’s 2012 song “Cockiness (I Love It).”
Rihanna has always kept her love life fairly private, however, in 2017 she did confirm she was dating Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel. They eventually split in January 2020.
During the pandemic, Rocky and Rihanna decided to embark on one of those great American road trips which took them from Los Angeles all the way to New York City.
They were then seen hanging out together in Barbados around Christmas-time last year. While everyone is familiar with Rihanna’s Barbados roots, many might not be aware that the country is also home to A$AP’s dad. Rocky explained how amazing it was getting to see his dad after a tough year.
During an interview with GQ, ASAP, whose real name is Rakim Athelaston Mayers, described Rihanna as “the love of my life”, which was the first confirmation that the two were dating.
He added: “She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the one.”
Rihanna seems to be taking a break from music at the moment, focusing on featuring in some excellent films like Oceans 8, and coming out with many different business ventures including a makeup line and a lingerie line. Though she has not openly admitted to quitting the music industry, she hasn’t released an album since 2016’s Anti.
In 2019, Rihanna spoke to Interview magazine about how she has attempted to redress the balance of workload in her life, meaning music has taken a backseat. She said: “I used to be in the studio, only the studio, for three months straight, and an album would come out.
“Now, it’s like a carousel. I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty the next, then music the next. It’s like having a bunch of kids and you need to take care of them all. If you’re not happy, you’re not going to be happy even doing things that you love doing.”
