Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky reportedly threw a private rave-themed baby shower on Friday night.
According to HipHollywood, the Umbrella singer, 34, rescheduled her bash after the initial event on Wednesday was cancelled following the Praise the Lord hitmaker’s arrest.
And Rihanna and A$AP, real name Rakim Athelaston Mayers, certainly made up for the initial disruption as their guests were asked to wear neon clothes while everyone left with personalised gifts.
The celebrations comes amid reports that a British mother-of-three has claimed A$APhas been ‘secretly messaging’ her for months, just weeks after denying rumors that he’d cheated on the singer with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.
One of the presents said to be handed out to the reported star-studded guestlist was a T-shirt which read: ‘I Went To Rih & Rocky’s Rave Shower And All I Got Was This Amazing Shirt.’
Rihanna, who has been lauded with her unconventional maternity looks, donned a ‘huge fur hat’.
The couple reportedly wanted to keep the shower super private and attendees were banned from filming and were asked to lock their phones away into pouches upon arrival.
Rihanna, full name Robin Rihanna Fenty, previously told how she didn’t want a traditional baby shower.
She insisted: ‘No brunch, no blush tones. And no animal-shaped nothing.
‘I mean it’s lit for a lot of people – I’ve even planned a couple of baby showers like that myself – it’s just not right for me.
‘Personally, I want a party. I want everyone to be plastered and crawling out. And it’s got to be co-ed! Don’t put me on no wicker chair somewhere with gifts at my feet where everyone is staring at me.’
Meanwhile, the superstar isn’t planning on throwing a gender reveal party and will reveal the sex of the baby when she and A$AP are ready.
She added: ‘I asked my doctor: “Is something wrong with me for not wanting this?” Because people keep asking me. “Am I a bad mom?” When we’re ready to tell the world, we’ll just tell them.’
It comes amid a new report that the Rude Boy singer was left distraught and was ‘forced to cancel her baby shower’ after A$AP, 33, was arrested in connection with a November 2021 shooting in Hollywood.
Rihanna was there when Rocky was arrested and has been crying non-stop,’ a source claimed to The Sun.
‘She’s heavily pregnant and these are very serious accusations, it’s a nightmare scenario for her.’
‘It was meant to be Rihanna’s baby shower in LA on Wednesday night but they had to cancel.
The source continued: ‘Rihanna was very, very upset and stressed by Rocky’s arrest It’s not the best time for her to be on such an emotional rollercoaster.’
