Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you’ve probably heard something about Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and a breakup. But you’re forgiven for not fully understanding the situation yet, it’s only been about a day and the drama has already had more twists and turns than a bowl of spaghetti.

So what actually did happen?

Well, back in January Rihanna and Rocky announced they were expecting their first child together, which most probably know. Since then Riri was living her best life, looking like a glowing goddess and single handedly redefining maternity fashion.

But the bliss didn’t last. During the week fashion blogger Louis Pisano, took to Twitter and said the pair had split due to Rocky having an affair. Writing, “Rihanna & ASAP Rocky have split. Rihanna broke up with him after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.”

“Amina was responsible for designing Fenty’s footwear offering and Rihanna is often seen in custom shoes from her own label.”

“ASAP & Amina is not new though as she was seeing him years ago and also collaborated with him on a collection of shoes. Things apparently hit the fan at Craigs in LA.”

The rumours quickly caught traction an ended up taking over the internet. With fans conducting their own investigation and coming to the conclusion that the story was true and the couple had called things quits.

But there were some who recognised that the source of the gossip was unreliable and took the situation with a grain of salt…and they were right to.

Paris based shoe designer, Amina, who was a close friend and co-worker of the couple, has spoken out, confirming she was not having an affair with Rocky.

She took to Twitter, writing, “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, 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, 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. While Rih is continuing to live her serene, best dressed pregnancy life and I go back to my business — I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend!”

Now, even Louis, who originally spread the rumours, has retracted his earlier statement and admitted he was wrong. Writing on Twitter, “Hi all, so I’d like to address the situation. Last night I made a dumb decision to tweet some information I had received.

I’m not going to talk about sources, blame others for a discussion that was started, etc because at the end of the day I made the decision to draft that tweet, press send and put that out with my name on it.

So I’d like to formally apologize to all parties involved with my actions and for my reckless tweets. I fully accept the consequences of my actions for my tweets and any harm they caused. I have no excuse for it, I’ve been way too wrapped up in Twitter drama and unfortunately leaned into being messy as a brand which is something going forward I’m going to move away from.

I’m going to take some time away from Twitter to figure out what that looks like and how I can start using my platforms better as I’ve gotten away from using them for more positive work. Again I apologize to them for this unnecessary drama.”

While neither Rihanna or Rocky have spoken out about the situation, it’s safe to say the rumours have been put to rest.
