The Harlem rapper put on a Spotify Beach concert at the 2023 Cannes Lions Festival on Wednesday night (June 21). While on stage, he apparently referred to RiRi as his wife as she watched on from the crowd, sparking talk about a secret wedding.
“I’d like to dedicate this song to my beautiful wife in the muthafuckin’ building!” Rocky said, according to Billboard, before performing his 2022 single “D.M.B.”
Rocky’s comments might also have been a play on the fact that in the video for the aforementioned song — which also stars Rihanna — he proposes to the singer through his grills spelling out “Marry Me,” to which she responds “I do” as she smiles through her pearly whites.
RiRi arrived at the venue at around 12:45 a.m. as Rocky’s show was just starting. You can see a video of her watching the show below.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s first child was reportedly born on May 13, 2022, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. RZA Athelston Mayers’ name was inspired by the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan.
RiRi is currently pregnant with their second child, which was revealed during her performance at the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show in February.
During an interview with Vogue in 2022, Rihanna admitted she kept A$AP Rocky in the friend zone for years before they eventually became an item.
“People don’t get out of the friend zone very easily with me,” she said at the time. “And I certainly took a while to get over how much I know him and how much he knows me because we also know how much trouble we can land each other in.”
A$AP Rocky first met Rihanna in 2012 when he joined her for a performance of “Cockiness (Love It)” at the MTV Video Music Awards.
“He grabbed my ass on stage,” she recalled. “That was not part of the rehearsal! I was like, ‘What are you doing!?’ My manager was like, ‘Oh, God, she must like this guy a little bit. She never lets this shit slide.’”
The couple’s relationship became more serious as the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020. “He became my family in that time,” she said. “I cooked our food on this little janky grill I bought from Walmart. I still have it, too. It works like nobody’s business. I love the simple things but also the grand adventures.
“There’s no pretentious my-brand-your-brand bullshit, it’s just us living. I just feel like I can do any part of life by his side.”
