LATE Last week, Twitter was ablaze with speculation after a user claimed pop star and beauty mogul Rihanna’s longtime partner, rapper A $ AP Rocky, had cheated on her with stylist Amina Muaddi.
The tweet also claimed that the couple, who are expecting their first child together overnight, had broken up due to the situation.
Although neither Rihanna nor A $ AP Rocky immediately addressed the rumor, less than a day later Muaddi herself came out on the platform due to the buzz she had generated.
He wrote: “I have always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media does not deserve any response or clarification, especially if it is so vile.
“However in the last 24 hours I have been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to talk about matters regardless of the facts and that nothing is off limits.”
She added that she was forced to speak “as this is not only directed towards me, but is related to people for whom I have a lot of respect and affection”.
Muaddi has worked with both artists in the past, and just the day before the rumors began, he had posted a series of photos of Rihanna wearing some of the shoes she had designed.
She concluded her statement by saying, “As Rih continues to live her pregnancy life serene and better dressed and I get back to my business, I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend.”
It is hoped that this denial will silence the still unfounded rumors.
