On Thursday (April 14), the internet erupted with reports that pregnant Rihanna and her unborn child's father, ASAP Rocky, had called it quits due to since-deleted tweets claiming so sent by fashion writer Louis Pisano.
The social media influencer claimed that the couple “split” after ASAP Rocky was “caught cheating” with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.
“Rihanna & ASAP Rocky have split. Rihanna broke up with him after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi,” Pisano tweeted.
Pisano, in another tweet, noted that Muaddi is a designer for Rihanna's Fenty footwear line and that the “Work” singer is “often seen in custom shoes from her own label.”
“ASAP & Amina is not new though as she was seeing him years ago and also collaborated with him on a collection of shoes,” he continued.
The cheating and breakup rumors shook social media, and the fashion couple, who are expecting their first child together, began trending on Twitter as fans reacted to the allegations.
Neither Rihanna nor ASAP Rocky has publicly responded to the rumors.

Amina Muaddi Speaks out After Being Named in Rihanna And Asap Rocky Cheating Rumours
Fashion designer Amina Muaddi, the woman at the center of the A$AP Rocky and Rihanna cheating rumors slammed the allegations as an “unfounded lie.”
She has since issued a statement on Friday (April 15) via her Instagram Story denying any involvement with the “Fashion Killa” rapper.
“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,” she began.
“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,” Muaddi continued, referring to Rihanna's pregnancy.
“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 life and I go back to my business I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend!” she concluded.
Multiple sources also denied the rumor in statements to TMZ and Page Six on Friday.
