Rihanna has officially stepped down from her role as CEO of her lingerie brand Savage X Fenty, appointing a successor to the position moving forward. According to Vogue Business, the superstar singer will officially transition out on Monday (June 26). It marks the end of a five-year tenure in the role, having operated as such since founding the company in 2018.
Former Anthropologie Group CEO Hillary Super will take over while Rihanna will remain in a leadership position as executive chair.
“It’s been beautiful to see our vision for Savage X Fenty impact the industry at such an incredible magnitude over the last five years,” Rihanna said in a statement to the publication. “This is just the beginning for us, and we’re going to continue to expand in ways that always connect with the consumer.”
She added: “I’m so grateful and excited to welcome Hillary Super as our new CEO—she is a strong leader and is focused on taking the business to an even higher level.” For now, Rihanna remains CEO of her multi-billion dollar cosmetics company Fenty Beauty, which she founded in 2017.
The news arrives amid rumors the “Diamonds” singer tied the knot with her boyfriend and children’s father A$AP Rocky after comments made during a performance in Cannes this week.
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.

It’s to be noted that the songs were likely recorded before he was arrested in May 2022, when there were no snitching allegations against Gunna to be had. Learn more
