Rihanna Stands By A$AP Rocky During West Hollywood Performance Post-Arrest
On Saturday night, Rihanna was at the Smokers Club Festival in West Hollywood to watch her boyfriend A$AP Rocky put on his first performance since his arrest over a gun charge. The beauty mogul is expecting her first child with the rapper in a matter of weeks, but she stayed up to support the father of her baby as he took to the stage.
She was spotted in the wings, wearing a matching maxi dress and coat. A$AP wore a white t-shirt for the show with the Parental Advisory label printed across the chest, and black sweats with metal detailing.
The musical artist was taken into custody by the Los Angeles Police Department the day the couple returned from a trip to Barbados to see family and friends on April 20. He was accused of firing a gun at an acquaintance on the corner of Selma and Argyle Avenues in early November 2021 after an argument. The man’s hand was grazed during the alleged altercation and he sought medical attention. Rocky is accused of fleeing the scene following the gun discharge.
A source told US Weekly soon after the arrest that Rihanna has been trying to focus on her pregnancy, despite the obvious stress of the situation.
“She hasn’t spoken much about [the arrest],” they said. “She’s truly focused on her pregnancy and not trying to get too stressed.”
The source added, “She is very confident about everything and has told friends she just hopes for a positive outcome.”
The rapper was released on $550,000 bail hours after his arrest, and he definitely has Rihanna in his corner.
“[She] is powerful and will do what she can to help him,” the insider said. “She loves ASAP and wants him to be by her side when she gives birth.”
