A$AP Rocky Says Rihanna’s “The One”

The Grammy nominated rapper and model dropped a bombshell for GQ’s June/July 2021 cover story, confirming to the magazine he’s dating the mega pop icon and fashion mogul Rihanna. Rumors have swirled about the two being a couple since 2013. Photos have surfaced of them kicking it as early as December 2020. He told GQ they’ve spent the COVID-19 pandemic in a bus, doing a road trip around the country.

Rocky wasn’t clear on the timing of their relationship or how it came to be, but he says it’s more than just a fling. He gushed that she is “the one…she amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones…the love of my life; my lady.” 

He even visited her family in Barbados for Christmas, where he described feeling a sense of belonging. His father is from the island where Rihanna grew up. 

“It was like a homecoming thing,” he told GQ. “It was crazy. I always imagined what it would be like for my dad, before he came to America. And I got to visit those places, and believe it or not, there was something nostalgic about it. It was foreign but familiar.”

Rocky is looking to settle down soon, telling GQ he’s ready to be a father and start a family.

“It’s in my destiny, absolutely,” said Rocky. “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.” 

It’s clear that Rocky is all in. And Rihanna is off the market. Sorry, fellas.
