Twitter has been ablaze the past 24 hours after rumors started circulating that A$AP Rocky had cheated on his pregnant girlfriend — who is none other than Rihanna — with designer Amina Muaddi. Even messier, Muaddi is a designer for Fenty Footwear, a fashion line founded by Bad Girl Ri Ri herself.
Good thing none of it was true. At least, that’s what Muaddi claimed in a Friday (April 15) message posted to her Twitter account, in which she dismissed the wildfire rumors as “fake gossip.” “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,” she wrote. “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. Therefore I have to speak up as this is not only directed towards me but it is related to people I have a great amount of respect and affection for.”
So why did people believe that Rihanna — who recently graced the cover of Vogue with her baby bump on display — broke up with the “Sundress” rapper? On Thursday (April 14), a self-described fashion influencer/writer made the claim in an explosive Twitter thread. “Rihanna broke up with him after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi,” he asserted. “ASAP & Amina is not new though as she was seeing him years ago and also collaborated with him on a collection of shoes.”
