A$AP Rocky spent Christmas with Rihanna’s family in Barbados.
The 32-year-old rap star recently started dating the chart-topping singer, and a source close to the celebrity couple claims spending Christmas together was an “obvious step” in their relationship.
The insider told “Entertainment Tonight”: “Spending Christmas together was an obvious step for Rihanna and A$AP.
“They’ve known each other for so long as friends and in a work setting, which makes it so easy for them to get along, travel together and be involved in each other’s lives to the full extent. They always have such a good time together and definitely seem in love.”
