Rihanna’s designer Amina Muaddi has slammed “vile” rumours that A$AP Rocky cheated on the pregnant star with her.
The shoe designer has taken to her Instagram page to deny any suggestion that she’s romantically linked to the rapper.
Amina had been embroiled in the lie, which originated on social media and had been denied by sources, and took to Instagram to deny the claims.
She wrote on Friday (April 15): “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.
She added: “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!”
Designer Amina is one of the most prominent shoe designers in the world and previously impressed Rihana with her talented and elegant footwear.
She quickly became Hollywood’s “go-to designer” for trendy shoes however her name has since gone global after the alleged affair rumours came to light.
Although several publications claimed Rihanna had split from her rapper boyfriend ASAP Rocky, TMZ has now confirmed that the accusations were false.
The rumour started after alleged footage of her boyfriend reportedly cheating emerged – according to publication XXL.
XXL claimed that Rihanna and ASAP were spotted at a restaurant in LA together and the Rude Boy singer was reportedly crying at the table, before leaving without her boyfriend in tow.
Despite the claims, sources have since told TMZ that the accounts were “100% false on both counts,” and then added, “1 million percent not true. They’re fine.”
Rihanna is due to give birth to her first child within the next few months.
