'They've always had amazing chemistry': Rihanna and A$AP Rocky dating - reports

Rihanna is dating her longtime friend and fellow chart-topper, A$AP Rocky, according to multiple reports. 

People Magazine first announced the relationship, after allegedly being informed by a source close to the new couple. 

The rumor mill went into overdrive when Rihanna, who split from her boyfriend of three years in January, was spotted having dinner with  A$AP Rocky in New York last month. 

"They've always had amazing chemistry," a source reportedly told Entertainment Tonight.

"Rihanna relates to A$AP and it feels natural, easy, and fun. She feels very comfortable around him since they’ve known each other for such a long time and also feels a connection to him because his dad is from Barbados."

Earlier this year, fans claimed the pair were obviously flirting during a video for GQ magazine, where Rihanna put 18 questions to the 'Sundress' rapper. 

In the clip, A$AP Rocky revealed the most difficult thing about working with Rihanna was "not goofing off and laughing the whole time." 

"The hardest part is not having too much fun," he said. 

Rihanna also chose to feature A$AP Rocky in a campaign for her skincare line, Fenty Skin, insisting he was one "one of the guys who everybody loves his skin". 

"I always wanted to know, 'How the heck do you have better skin than half these girls? I mean, what do you do?'" the singer told Entertainment Tonight about the campaign at the time. 

A$AP Rocky opened for Rihanna on her Diamonds World Tour in 2013, and also featured on her track 'Cockiness'. Rihanna then went on to play A$AP Rocky's girlfriend in the music video for his hit 'Fashion Killa'.
