After years of speculation regarding a potential romantic spark between A$AP Rocky and Rihanna, it appears as though the alleged mega-famous couple is finally almost there in terms of being a public item.
With countless photos and hints coming in over the last few weeks specifically of the pair being seen out and about on the streets of New York City looking especially loved-up, it seems all but certain that they’ve taken their long term friendship to the next level.
Now, after spending the holidays together, sources close to the pair claim they “definitely seem in love.”
Christmas In Barbados
According to a source for Entertainment Tonight, the pair spending Christmas together with Rihanna’s family in Barbados was indicative of the fact that their relationship has taken a serious step in the right direction.
After such a long and well-documented friendship, it appears the talented wordsmiths have finally decided to advance beyond being just friends, which, according to the aforementioned source, “makes it so easy for them to get along” and develop their budding romantic relationship to an even more profound degree.
‘Definitely Seem In Love’
“Spending Christmas together was an obvious step for Rihanna and A$AP,” the source explained, per the publication.
“They’ve known each other for so long as friends and in a work setting, which makes it so easy for them to get along, travel together and be involved in each other’s lives to the full extent. They always have such a good time together and definitely seem in love.”
While Rihanna was born and raised in Barbados, Rocky is from Harlem, New York, but his father was indeed born and lived on the island.
Rumors began swirling earlier this month with sources confirming to the publication weeks ago that the pair were starting to get serious with one another. Per those tidbits, it appears that the pair’s budding romance was largely fueled by their comfort around one another, including the previously-mentioned mutual familial ties to Barbados.
“Rihanna relates to A$AP and it feels natural, easy and fun,” the source explained. “She feels very comfortable around him since they’ve known each other for such a long time and also feels a connection to him because his dad is from Barbados.”
‘A Lot Of Love There’
A source told Entertainment Tonight at a later date a bit more about the new couple.
“Rihanna is very into A$AP and now that they’re not so busy with work, they’re able to spend more time together and are really enjoying it,” they said.
“They’ve known each other for years and really trust each other as friends first and foremost, which has made their romantic relationship very strong. A$AP has always had a crush on Rihanna and there’s a lot of love there on both sides.”
