2020 might be a year like no other, but no matter how challenging our ever-changing reality, one thing remains the same: Handcuff season is upon us. Despite what our cracker report might have suggested earlier this year, People Now reports that Rihanna would be, to our knowledge, no longer single, now that she is dating longtime friend and single opener, A $ AP Rocky, who the singer was spotted having dinner with at the Beatrice Inn in New York. This weekend.
In reality, the news is not so surprising. Through Weekly US, Rihanna and her boyfriend Hassan Jameel broke up earlier this year, and shortly thereafter she reportedly spent time with the “Fashion Killa” rapper in late January, when celebrity couples could hypothetically be spotted. (Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas excluded.)
Plus, only a fool could watch Rihanna and A $ AP Rocky interview each other for GQ and Vogue in August without realizing that something romantic was brewing, even though their couple content was at the service of his Fenty Skin campaign. After all, he is still a pandemic. Don’t we all watch Act 1 of our 2013 World Diamond Tour with fresh eyes? New eyes that want to date someone we know and, more importantly, who is already safe in our quarantine bubble?
