Rihanna and Travis Scott may be keeping quiet regarding rumors of their alleged romance, but according to sources close to Rihanna, it appears things are heating up between RiRi and the Rodeo rapper.
Just weeks after Rihanna and Scott made headlines for their flirty behavior during Rihanna’s NYFW party in September, reports are now suggesting that Rihanna and Scott are ready to take the next step in their budding relationship.
An insider close to Rihanna reveals to The Sun, via Mirror UK, that while neither Rihanna nor Travis Scott are willing to comment on the dating rumors, things are already beginning to heat up in their romance.
“Rihanna has fallen hard for [Travis],” the source explains of Rihanna’s feelings towards the rapper before noting that the “FourFiveSeconds” singer is ready to introduce Scott to her mother.
“The ultimate test for Travis will be meeting the tough-talking matriarch of the family, her mum Monica Braithwaite, who is fiercely protective over her daughter.”
The source also explains that while Rihanna has been linked to several different suitors over the past few months, including Real Madrid soccer star Karim Benzema and Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton, Rihanna and Scott have a “different” connection.
Rihanna’s insider further notes that RiRi was never “fully serious” with Hamilton and neglected to comment on the songstress’ brief romance with Karim Benzema.
Furthermore, the source alleges that Rihanna’s friends feel that her romance with Travis Scott is her “most committed relationship” since calling things off with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2013.
The news comes just weeks after sources close to Rihanna unofficially confirmed her relationship status with Scott in a report to E! News.
Not long after the duo were photographed kissing at Rihanna’s New York Fashion Week party last month, sources close to Rihanna revealed that the “B**** Better Have My Money” singer and Scott are officially an item.
“It’s already very serious,” the source explained, “He’s very into her.”
While several reports suggest that things are getting serious between RiRi and Scott, Rihanna seemed to dispel the dating rumors with an eyebrow-raising Instagram message posted to her account last month.
In the text post, Rihanna appears to deny the news of her new relationship status when she answers the question, “Omg why are you still single?” with “cos I’m a c***.”
Rumors of Rihanna and Scott’s romance seemed to die down after Scott appeared alongside Rihanna in her new campaign for Puma, leaving some fans to believe that the romantic rumors surrounding Rihanna and Scott merely served to add hype to their collaborative campaign.
While some fans continue to slam Rihanna and Scott’s rumored relationship on social media, sources close to Rihanna recently revealed to Urban Islandz that RiRi is unbothered by those who aren’t supportive of her friendship with Travis.
“Everyone wants RiRi to be happy and she seems happy and in love so we should all be happy for her,” the source explains, “Her fans can’t determine her happiness so she pretty much tunes out all the haters right now and is just living her life.”
Rihanna and Travis Scott were most recently spotted partying at the trendy Seven nightclub in Paris earlier this week, just one day before Rihanna showed her support for Dior during Paris Fashion Week.
While reports suggest Rihanna and Scott attempted to make a quick getaway from the paparazzi following their night of partying, photographers snapped several photos of the duo leaving the nightclub hotspot within minutes of each other.
Currently, Travis Scott is busy promoting his new album, Rodeo, while Rihanna recently confirmed that her highly-anticipated eighth studio album, tentatively titled R8, has yet to be completed.
Do you think Rihanna will introduce Travis Scott to her family, or will the duo’s romance fizzle out?
