Amina Muaddi, a famous shoe designer rumoured to be in a romantic relationship with Rihanna’s boyfriend, ASAP Rocky, has finally broken silence.
Muaddi took to her Instagram Stories on Friday, April 15, 2022, where she debunked the rumours of having an affair with ASAP.
According to Muaddi, she initially assumed it was fake gossip but decided to clear the air about the reports when it got so viral.
In her words: “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 it was fake gossip with such malicious intent – would not be taken seriously.
“However in the last 24h, I have 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 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 and I go back to my business, I wish everyone a beautiful easter”.

A report from TMZ published on Friday, however, includes some rumor-dispelling insight from a source said to be “directly connected” to Rihanna and Rocky.
That source said that any such talk is “100 percent false on both counts,” later adding that infidelity and split rumors were “1 million percent not true.”
Page Six also reported on the claims in a Friday-shared report, with its source stating that the couple is fine. “It’s not true,” the source said of breakup rumors.
The ensuing report noted that the rumors appear to have originated from writer Louis Pisano, who said in a tweet that Rihanna and Rocky had split “after [Rihanna] caught [Rocky] cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.”
Pisano later addressed the situation on Twitter, writing an apology and stating he’ll be taking a break from Twitter.
“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 apologize to all parties I involved with my actions and for my reckless tweets,” he wrote.
