The 32-year-old rap star recently started dating the chart-topping singer, with sources close to the couple claiming spending Christmas together was an “obvious step” in their relationship.
The insider told Entertainment Tonight: “Spending Christmas together was an obvious step for Rihanna and A$AP.
“They’ve known each other for so long as friends and in a work setting, which makes it so easy for them to get along, travel together and be involved in each other’s lives to the full extent. They always have such a good time together and definitely seem in love.”
The Work hitmaker, 32, was born and raised on the island, while A$AP’s dad is also from Barbados, and their connection to the island is said to have brought them closer together over recent months.
“Rihanna relates to A$AP and it feels natural, easy and fun,” a source previously shared. “She feels very comfortable around him since they’ve known each other for such a long time and also feels a connection to him because his dad is from Barbados.”
Last month (November 2020), meanwhile, the celebrity duo were described as being “inseparable,” with insiders explaining: “It’s a new relationship, but they both seem very into it. They’ve always seemed to have a great time together. They have a lot in common.
“They both are very much about helping out in the communities where they grew up A$AP is generous, and so is Rihanna. A$AP is known for being a great guy.
“Rihanna seems very happy dating A$AP.”
