Amina Muaddi, 36, one of the most prominent designers in the world, has denied rumoured romantic relationship with Rihanna’s boyfriend, A$AP Rocky.

Rumours of the split between Rihanna and her boyfriend has been going on for some days and increasing daily.

A$AP Rocky is rumoured to have had an affair with Amina Muaddi, one of Rihanna’s closest friends.

Amina Muaddi took to her Instagram page on Friday to debunk the allegations describing such claims as “unfounded lies with malicious intent.”

She said: “I’ve always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media doesn’t deserve any response or clarification, especially one that is so vile.”

“I initially assumed that this fake gossip – fabricated with such malicious intent- would not be taken seriously. However, in the last 24h, I’ve been reminded that we live in a society that is quick to speak on the topic regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off-limits.”

“Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated times in one’s life. Therefore, I have to speak up as this is not only directed towards me but it is related to people I have a great amount of respect and affection for.”

“While Rih is continuing to live her serene, best-dressed pregnancy life and I go back to my business. I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend. Amina.”
