A$AP Rocky recently featured in the May issue of GQ magazine where he talked about incarceration, music, fashion, and self-discovery. He also confirmed he is dating the one and only, pop icon, Rihanna.


There's a reason why A$AP Rocky is known as "the prettiest man alive." Besides his undeniable musical talent, he is also a fashion-forward influencer with the looks and charm to make him the center of attention.

While Rocky, born Rakim Athelaston Mayers, is indeed a whole package by himself with incredible fame and fortune, he recently revealed the one thing that makes his life better, his romantic relationship with pop icon, Rihanna Fenty.

In the May issue of GQ Magazine, Rocky confirmed that he and the "Pon De Replay" hitmaker were dating and proudly revealed that she is the love of his life. He added:

"I think when you know, you know. She's the One."


Rocky also admitted that being in a relationship felt great because he felt he was with the right person. While happy in his relationship, he did not divulge how and when they started dating.

However, rumors of their romantic involvement first sparked back in 2013 when he performed at Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour. In the same year, the Fenty Beauty mogul appeared opposite Rocky in his music video for "Fashion Killa."


Of course, there was a period between June 2017 and January 2020 when Rihanna was dating billionaire Toyota heir, Hassan Jameel. During that time, Rocky was romantically linked to reality star and Victoria's Secret model, Kendall Jenner.

Despite other relationships, the pair stayed in contact and remained friends, attending fashion shows and award shows together. Rocky was even a guest at Rihanna's annual Diamond Ball two years in a row.


Speculation of Rocky and Rihanna's romance heated up in early 2020 and continued through August 2020, when the dynamic duo collaborated on a campaign for Rihanna's skincare line, Fenty Skin.

At the close of 2020, Rocky and the "We Found Love" songstress' relationship became more apparent after being spotted together on multiple occasions, including a Christmas trip to Rihanna's home country, Barbados.


Rocky doesn't mince his words when he talks about the effect his romance with Rihanna has had on his life. The Caribbean beauty has been known to inspire intense feelings in her male counterparts.

Previously, the "Oceans 8" star has been linked with several big names in Hollywood, including actor Leonardo DiCaprio, rapper Drake, racecar driver Lewis Hamilton and her most infamous relationship, Chris Brown.
