Though rapper A$AP Rocky has denied romantic involvement with Rihanna, the two have been quite close recently, with the singer even visiting his hotel in New York last week. The artists have worked together in the past, collaborating on a remix of Rihanna’s song “Cockiness” and performing together at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
The 24-year-old rapper also opened for Rihanna for part of the North American leg of her “Diamonds” tour from March to May of this year. During that time, fans speculated that they were dating, but in April, Rocky tried to end the rumors. He told MTV News, "Yeah, I expected people to say that me and Rihanna were sleeping around. We're just cool…I don't even look at her like that. She's sexy, but I'm good.”
But at the Alexander Wang New York Fashion Week party this past Saturday at Pier 17, Rihanna went right to Rocky’s VIP section when she entered, the New York Post’s Page Six reported. “They were talking really close. Bodyguards were stationed all around them so that no one could get pictures.” And on Thursday morning, the 25-year-old singer was reportedly spotted leaving his hotel in the Chelsea neighborhood.
If there is anything going on between Rocky and RiRi, it could be trouble, as Rocky is said to still be dating Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman, 22. The pair was mostly recently seen together on the red carpet at the MTV VMA Awards just two weeks ago. Iman is also taking part in New York Fashion Week; she walked in the Cushnie et Ochs show.
