But, she’s Rihanna?!
Rihanna, the Rihanna, was denied entry to a bar in New York City this week because she didn’t have any ID with her, and a clip of the moment was caught by a fan and is currently circulating on Twitter.
If you can believe it, rules also apply to famous people (sometimes) and Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky discovered that the hard way when the pair were denied entry to an NYC bar last night (24 June) because the singer didn’t have ID with her.
To make matters worse as the whole thing unfolded a quick-thinking fan filmed the pair talking with the bouncer after being told the “Work” singer wouldn’t be allowed in without ID.
The video, which shows Rihanna in the 90’s inspired pink dress and fluffy hat that fans went wild for yesterday, was posted in response to a tweet from another fan that read, “I just saw a bouncer try to not let Rihanna into a bar for not having id lmaoooo whose mans is this.”
Another commenter then united fans by responding, “He doesn’t remember her, cos she hasn’t release music in years.” Savage… But we do miss your music RiRi.
Aside from that slight hiccup, we’re basically just chuffed to see Rihanna and A$AP looking cute and couple-y, since he opened up about their relationship for the first time in May of this year after months of speculation.
The rumors about the pair have been going on since January 2020, when she split with her boyfriend of three years, Hassan Jameel. But it wasn’t until late last year that they were first properly linked when Page Six reported that they were out to dinner together with friends in New York, seated discreetly behind a curtain.
Well done on remembering to be adorable, you two, but try to remember your IDs next time too…
