According to media reports, pop star Rihanna (34) and her boyfriend, US rapper Asap Rocky (33), have become parents for the first time. The singer from the Caribbean island of Barbados gave birth to a boy in Los Angeles on May 13, the celebrity portal “TMZ” reported on Thursday (local time). The child’s name is not yet known. The TV channel CNN and the magazine “People” also reported on the birth.
Rihanna (“Umbrella”) and Asap Rocky (“Praise the Lord”) announced in a series of photos in January that they are expecting a child together. In April, the artist flaunted her baby bump in a photo shoot for fashion magazine Vogue. The 34-year-old also graces the cover of the May issue in an orange-red, skin-tight lace bodysuit.
Asap Rocky made headlines about a month ago after being temporarily arrested in Los Angeles. The musician was accused of assault using a weapon, the police said at the time.
The rapper is considered a suspect in an incident in November last year in Hollywood. According to the police, a dispute between two acquaintances had escalated, which ended with gun violence. One victim was slightly injured. Asap Rocky was released on bail after being arrested.
