Following ASAP Rocky’s arrest, he gained notoriety for the first time with his pregnant female friend, Rihanna, while posting bail.
According to photographs obtained by Entertainment Tonight, the twosome — who were originally connected in February 2020 — were pictured enjoying dinner with friends and family in Santa Monica, California, on Saturday, April 23.
The 33-year-old “Fashion Killa” rapper was arrested for assault with a dangerous weapon just days before the show. He was apprehended by the LAPD on Wednesday, April 20, after he and the Fenty founder, 34, returned to the United States following their trip to Barbados. Following an alleged fight in November 2021, Rocky (real name Rakim Mayers) was charged with an assault with a dangerous weapon, according to the LAPD.
According to the police report, the artist got into a heated disagreement with an “acquaintance” and reportedly shot the victim with a revolver. Rocky is said to have walked away from the scene with two other males. The victim was involved in minor mishaps. (The rapper’s agents did not reply to a request for comment from Us Weekly at the time.)
Several hours later, the New York resident was released on a $550,000 bond. His next court hearing is set for August 17th.
“[Rihanna] is strong and could do anything she can to help him,” a source told Us exclusively just before their stop in Santa Monica on Saturday. “She adores ASAP and want for him to be at her side when she delivers birth.”
With a beautiful pregnancy pictorial in January, the Oceans eight star disclosed that she and Rocky are expecting their first child together.
Rihanna told Vogue earlier this month, “I wouldn’t say [we] were making preparations [to raise a family].” “However, I am no longer intending to oppose it.” I have no idea what happens after I ovulate or anything like that. We just had a good time. After then, it was just there on the exam…. I referred to him as “inner” and demonstrated to him. The next morning, I went to the health practitioner’s office, and our trip began.”

Following Rocky’s arrest, the pregnant pop star has been tight-lipped about the event.
“She’s definitely focused on her pregnancy and isn’t wanting to get too worried,” the source said. “She seems to be quite confident in everything and has told friends that she just wishes for good outcomes.”
The couple’s current hiatus is said to put an end to split rumors that surfaced earlier this month when the “Praise the Lord” singer was accused of cheating on Rihanna with Amina Muaddi. The designer, who works for Fenty, has said that the charges are false.
