The Grammy winner, 34, attended the Smoker’s Club Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 30, which marked the first time the “Peso” rapper, 33, took the stage since he was arrested in connection with a November 2021 shooting. In photos obtained by TMZ, the “Diamonds” singer stood backstage in a long coat while her beau performed his hits.
Los Angeles Police Department took the New York City native into custody on April 20, after he returned from a vacation in Barbados with Rihanna. According to a statement from the LAPD, the “Fashion Killa” artist was charged with assault with a deadly weapon following an alleged altercation that occurred last year.
Per the police report, the musician allegedly fired a handgun at an “acquaintance” after the two had a heated argument. Rocky fled the scene on foot, along with two other men. The victim sustained minor injuries. (A representative for the BET Award winner was unable to respond. Us Weekly’s request for comment at the time.)
The DopeActor was released on $550,000 bail shortly after his arrest. His next court date has been set for August 17.
“[Rihanna] hasn’t spoken much about [the arrest],” an insider exclusively told UseLast month, Fenty Beauty founder. “She’s truly focused on her pregnancy and not trying to get too stressed. She is very confident about everything and has told friends she just hopes for a positive outcome.”
The “Work” songstress and her boyfriend announced in January that they are expecting their first child. In May 2021, Rocky — whose real name is Rakim Mayers — confirmed that he and the BattleshipStar are a couple.
“[It’s]The One makes everything better. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones,” the “Goldie” rapper told GQat the time. “I think when you know, you know. She’s The One.”
The two have been friends for many years and have collaborated together for years. In December 2019, romance rumors were first sparked when the pair posed together on the red carpet at the Fashion Awards in London. Two months later, Use confirmed that the pair were “hooking up” after Rihanna’s split from ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel.
“They’re having fun and have always had chemistry,” an insider said in February 2020.
The duo made a splash at the Met Gala red carpet last year after they were delayed from their May date due to the coronavirus epidemic. The duo arrived last in coordinated looks that included large coats by Balenciaga (Rihanna), and ERL(Rocky).
