Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were spotted heading out to a dinner with family and friends in LA on Saturday night
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been seen in public together 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 linked arms during an outing in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
Although Rihanna is thought to have canceled her baby shower, she still attended dinner at a swanky Italian restaurant with friends and family days after her boyfriend was stopped by police.
Proudly showing off her bump for the occasion, the We Found Love singer continued her bold maternity style with a black and silver sequin bra and matching shorts.
She completed her look with a white shirt which she wore open, a black jacket and black open toe heels.

A$AP – whose real name is Rakim Mayers – went for a more casual look in a gray co-ord with white floral pattern.
He added a bit of bling with his two necklaces and a jewel encrusted belt which he wore low slung round his waist.
The outing to Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica comes just a few days after A$AP’s arrest at LAX airport on April 20.
The 33-year-old was stopped by police in connection to a shooting which happened in November 2021.
The Los Angeles Police Department said the arrest was made in connection with an “argument between two acquaintances” which resulted in shots being fired.
The shooting victim, who survived, later told police that A$AP, who was walking with two others, approached him with a handgun on the street.
He claims A$AP shot at him three to four times and believed one of the bullets grazed his left hand, according to police reports.
In a statement on Twitter, LAPD confirmed the victim sustained a “minor injury” after which his attackers “fled on foot.”
The shooting had not yet been reported in the media. The only other details police have given so far of A$AP’s arrest.
Another Twitter statement said: “Early this morning, LAPD officers arrested Mayers for assault with a deadly weapon (firearm) at the Los Angeles International Airport. The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration.”
The Praise the Lord rapper was taken into custody as he came back from a holiday to Barbados with Rihanna.
He later posted his $550,000 bail and was pictured being released from an LA police station later that day.
He is set to appear in court on August 17.
A source told Us Weekly heavily pregnant Rihanna “hasn’t spoken much about the arrest” and is “trying not to get too stressed”.
“She’s truly focused on her pregnancy,” the insider said, adding: “She is very confident about everything and has told friends she just hopes for a positive outcome.”
The arrest is the latest thing Rihanna has had to deal recently after claims emerged A$AP had cheated on her.
it was reported Rihanna had dumped 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 pals claim they are “one million per cent not true”.
A source told TMZ the couple are very much still together and are “fine.”
