Before Rihanna, A$AP Rocky had dated several other celebrities. While some of his relationships did not end well, others did. Read on to learn everything we know about his dating history.
Born on October 3, 1988, the American rapper came onto the music scene in 2011 and has released chart-topping albums like "Long.Live.A$AP" and "At.Long.Last.A$AP."
A$AP Rocky is well known for his experimental approach to music, flair for fashion, prolific love life, and being the first person of color to become the face of Dior Homme, a luxury menswear brand, in 2016.
On May 13, 2022, the rapper reportedly welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend, Rihanna, after she first revealed in January 2022 that she was expecting her first child with Rocky.
While Rihanna took maternity fashion to the next level throughout her pregnancy, she is not the only famous girlfriend that the rapper had.
WHO WAS A$AP ROCKY DATING?
Before he and Rihanna became an item, there were rumors that the rapper was romantically linked to Kendall Jenner between 2016 and 2017. They were all over each other at the 2017 Coachella and MET Gala.
Around the same time, Rocky was also romantically linked to Tahiry Jose, the Love & Hip Hop: New York star. They were reportedly dating between 2014 and 2017, which eventually caused friction in his love life.
In early 2013, he started dating Victoria's Secret model Chanel Iman, but they kept their relationship private even though they appeared at numerous red-carpet events together. In 2014, they got engaged, and it lasted for about six months.
He was reportedly dating Rita Ora in 2012, but their relationship was shrouded in drama. Then in his 2015 song "Better Things," he accused her of having a big mouth, and she denied they were ever romantically involved.
Between June 2011 and June 2012, he dated the Australian superstar Iggy Azalea after being introduced via a mutual friend. She even tattooed his album title "Live.Love.A$AP" on her finger and removed the "A$AP" when they split.

In August 2020, they collaborated to promote Fenty Skin, and by December 2020, there were reports that they had made their relationship official, but the couple remained tight-lipped.
While there were reports that they were inseparable, it was not until May 2021 that Rocky admitted that they were in a relationship. In an interview, Rocky called her "my lady" and "the love of my life."
In January 2022, they shared the exciting news that a baby was on the way, and in May 2022, they welcomed their bundle of joy after having a secret baby shower in March 2022.
