Hollywood, CA

With Rihanna inching closer to her due date, she and A$AP Rocky reportedly celebrated their baby’s impending arrival with a rave-themed shower on Friday (April 22). According to HipHollywood, the couple decided to move forward with the soiree despite reports RiRi had canceled the party after Rocky’s arrest at the Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month.

The intimate affair reportedly went down at a studio in Hollywood where guests were asked to don neon-colored clothing for the over-the-top bash. Attendees were prohibited from taking photos or video, but a few shots did ultimately make it online. One of the photos featured a t-shirt handed out to everyone in attendance. The design featured a photo of Rocky and Rihanna as children with the text, “I WENT TO RIH & ROCKY’S RAVE SHOWER AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS AMAZING SHIRT.”

A$AP Rocky was arrested at LAX on April 20 as he and Rihanna were returning from Barbados for his alleged involvement in a November 2021 shooting. A source reportedly told The Sun Rihanna had been extremely emotional in the wake of the incident and was forced to cancel her baby shower that was supposed to happen that night.

“She’s heavily pregnant and these are very serious accusations,” they said. “It’s a nightmare scenario for her. Rihanna was very, very upset and stressed by Rocky’s arrest. It’s not the best time for her to be on such an emotional rollercoaster.”

While the baby shower was obviously postponed for a couple days, it apparently went on without a hitch. Several members of her family flew in from her home country of Barbados to celebrate the baby.

Meanwhile, Rocky posted $550,000 bail and was released shortly after his arrest.
