Designer Amina Muaddi has slammed rumours that A$AP Rocky cheated on Rihanna with her amid the singer's pregnancy.

On Thursday, a tweet by fashion writer Louis Pisano claiming that A$AP and Rihanna broke up after she found out he was cheating went viral on social media.

Muaddi, who works as a designer for Fenty, broke her silence with a statement on Twitter, calling the accusation an 'unfounded lie' and 'vile'.

"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."

She continued: "However, in the last 24h, I've been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to speak on topics 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!" she ended the statement.


Hours after Muaddi's statement, Pisano issued an apology on Twitter for their reckless tweets.

"Last night, I made a dumb decision to tweet some information I had received. I'm not going to talk about sources, blame others for a discussion that was started because at the end of the day, I made the decision to draft that tweet, press send and put that out with my name on it."

They continued: "So I'd like to formally apologise to all the parties involved with my actions and for my reckless tweets. I fully accept the consequences for my tweets and any harm they caused. I have no excuse for it; I've been way too wrapped up in Twitter drama and unfortunately leaned into being messy as a brand which is something forward I'm going to move away from."


A source close to the couple told TMZ that both the break-up and cheating claims are untrue.

"100% false on both counts," and added "1 million per cent not true. They're fine," reports TMZ.
