Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky share a kiss before jumping on a jet ski during romantic getaway in her native Barbados

RIHANNA and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky enjoy a beautiful Barbados vacation together during the Christmas holiday.

The Sun exclusively reported that their relationship began in January of this year.

The couple was seen soaking up the sun in Rihanna's native Caribbean country, as they shared a smooch during the Christmas holiday.

The 32-year-old performer relaxed with her beau on a beautiful catamaran sunset cruise before hopping on a jet ski together for some adventure.

Rihanna wore a slinky and sparkly green mini-dress with gold jewelry while A$AP went casual in a bathing suit and white tee.

The celebrity duo has been friends for years, but things got serious once Rihanna broke up with her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel on January 17th, 2020.

That same day, at the 2020 Yams Day Benefit Concert, Rihanna and A$AP were spotted in New York City together.

An insider told The Sun: “They shared a hotel suite during that trip in New York.

“However, Rihanna is reluctant to put a label on it as it’s so soon after Hassan.

“They’re really enjoying each other’s company and taking things easy as it’s still early days.

“It’s really casual between them and she’s not thinking about whether there’s a future with Rocky. She’s a newly-single girl having fun.”

The source also shared that her relationship with Hassan came to a halt after three years because “Their lives were too different and it was hard to maintain a relationship.”

Since then, Rihanna and A$AP had been keeping their relationship under wraps, until July when the makeup mogul featured her long-time friend and lover in her Fenty Skin campaign.

In promotion of the project, the couple spoke to GQ, where the rapper gushed about his love interest, saying: "I think the hardest part about working with you is not goofin’ off and laughing the whole time. Like this s— is comedy."

"That's the hardest part. You know people be so cool it's hard not to, not to laugh. That's all. But it was fun.

"The hardest part is not having too much fun. You just forget that it's still work at the end of the day."

The duo was also seen grabbing dinner at the Beatrice in Manhattan last month, where they shared a low-key, quiet date night.

Rihanna's friendship with A$AP first began in 2013, when he opened for the Savage x Fenty founder on the U.S. stops of the Diamonds World Tour, and continued once collaborating on several single releases together.

Prior to Hassan, Rihanna has dated both Drake and Chris Brown, with whom she shared a very public toxic love affair.

Chris was arrested for allegedly beating Rihanna in 2009, and was sentenced to probation, community service and domestic violence counseling for the act.

A$AP Rocky has also dated several other celebs, including Kendall Jenner, Chanel Iman, Rita Ora, Iggy Izalea, and reportedly even hooked up with Kendall's little sister Kylie as well.

Rihanna has been spending time in Barbados since earlier this month, after flying to the tropical location via private jet.

While spending some downtime relaxing in her home island, the Umbrella artist was spotted by a fan in a gas station, where he took a selfie video in amazement of the talented star.
