Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are getting out of town.
Amid the erroneous reports of a breakup and cheating allegations, the couple headed to Barbados.
The singer, 34, and rapper, 33, were seen arriving at Grantly Adams International Airport in Rihanna’s native island on Friday night. In footage, obtained by The Shade Room, the two walked out of the airport and got into a sprinter van.
Their getaway comes amid rumors that Rocky cheated on his pregnant girlfriend with designer Amina Muaddi. But Muaddi–who designed shoes for Rihanna’s Fenty collection–denied the “unfounded” allegations in a statement.
“I’ve always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media doesn’t deserve any response or clarification, especially one that is so vile,” Muaddi wrote on her Instagram Story Friday. “I initially assumed that this fake gossip — fabricated with such malicious intent — would not be taken seriously.”
“However in the last 24h I’ve been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to speak on topics regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits,” she continued. “Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated times in one’s life.”
The person who started the rumor, writer Louis Pisano, has since apologized. “Last night I made a dumb decision to tweet some information I had received,” he tweeted. “I’d like to formally apologize to all parties I involved with my actions and for my reckless tweets.”
Rihanna and Rocky, who are expecting their first child, previously vacationed in Barbados for Christmas in 2020 when Rihanna introduced her boyfriend to her family.
“My mother has a really good read on people. She observes first and then she’ll move slowly. I guess I’m like that too,” she told Vogue. “There are some guys that I’ve dated that she won’t even look at to this day. But she was charmed by him from the jump.”
