Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been spotted together in public for the first time since the rapper’s arrest.
The couple, who are expecting their first child together, put on a defiant show as they crossed their arms at an outing in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
Although Rihanna is believed to have canceled her baby shower, days after her boyfriend was pulled over by police, she was still going to a fancy Italian restaurant for dinner with friends and family.
To mark the occasion, the We Found Love singer proudly showed off her bump and continued her bold maternity style with a black and silver sequined bra and matching shorts.
She completed her look with a white shirt that she wore open, a black jacket and black open-toed pumps.

A$AP – real name Rakim Mayers – opted for a more casual look in a gray combo with white florals.
He added a bit of jewelry with his two necklaces and a jeweled belt that he wore low around his waist.
The trip to Santa Monica’s Giorgio Baldi Italian restaurant comes just days after A$AP was arrested at LAX on April 20.
The 33-year-old was pulled over by police in connection with a shooting in November 2021.
Los Angeles police said the arrest was made in connection with an “argument between two acquaintances” that resulted in shots being fired.
The shooting victim, who survived, later told police that A$AP, who was with two others, approached him on the street with a pistol.
According to police reports, he claims A$AP shot him three to four times and believed one of the bullets grazed his left hand.
In a statement on Twitter, the LAPD confirmed the victim suffered “minor injuries,” after which his attackers “fleeed on foot.”
The shooting had not yet been reported in the media. The only other details police have given of A$AP’s arrest so far.
Another Twitter statement said: “Earlier today LAPD officers arrested Mayers for assault with a deadly weapon (firearm) at Los Angeles International Airport. The case will be submitted to the Los Angeles County Attorney’s Office for review.”
Rapper Praise the Lord was arrested while returning from vacation in Barbados with Rihanna.
He later posted his $550,000 bail and was released from an LA police station later in the day.
He is scheduled to appear in court on August 17.
A source tells Us weekly The heavily pregnant Rihanna “hasn’t spoken much about the arrest” and is “trying not to stress too much.”
“She’s really focused on her pregnancy,” the insider said, adding, “She’s very confident about everything and has told friends she’s only hoping for a positive outcome.”
The arrest is the latest thing Rihanna has had to deal with after claims A$AP cheated on her.
it was reported Rihanna dropped A$AP after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.
The rumours, published on a US celebrity gossip website, are reportedly false as friends claim they are “a million percent untrue”.
A source tells TMZ The couple are still very much together and are doing “fine”.
