Rihanna & A$AP Rocky are getting closer and closer to becoming parents.
The Barbados native and her boyfriend have recently been plagued by drama ranging from cheating rumors to an arrest.
A$AP was arrested Wednesday, April 20 after his private jet landed at LAX.
A$AP is in the throes of drama
Days before his arrest, rumors of cheating spread about A$AP and a Fenty designer named Amina Muaddi.
Rumors of cheating have been dispelled by the creator.
Despite all the drama that preceded Riri’s delivery, the couple are unfazed and continue to live their best life together.
Just two days after his arrest, the rapper and “Sex With Me” singer hosted a rave-themed baby shower.
The rave took place on Friday, April 22 in Hollywood.

Guests were asked to wear neon outfits to fit the theme. They couldn’t take pictures or videos inside, but they received exclusive gifts.
The party favors were second to none!
A party favor included was a T-shirt with a picture of A$AP and Rihanna as kids. The t-shirt had a message that read, “I Went 2 Rih & Rocky’s Rave Shower and All I Got Was This Amazing Shirt.”

Riri and A$AP reportedly don’t have a baby registry for the event.
As previously mentioned, the “Rave Shower” took place just two days after the rapper’s arrest.
He was returning from a trip to Barbados, Rihanna’s home country.
A$AP, born Rakim Mayers, was arrested in connection with a shooting that allegedly took place in November 2021. In addition to his arrest, police also obtained a search warrant for his home in Los Angeles. The LAPD reportedly made the arrest with the assistance of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations Team.

According to BNC News, Mayers’ attorney, Alan Jackson, confirmed that Mayers was arrested. He was taken to jail at 12:42 p.m. on bail set at $550,000, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department booking report.
Mayers posted bail and was released approximately three hours after posting bond.
He has a court date set for August 17, which is likely after Rihanna has given birth to their first child, given that she is already in her third trimester. Police also executed a search warrant at his Los Angeles home and reportedly recovered some items from the house.

According to the LAPD, Mayers is the prime suspect in a shooting that took place Nov. 6, 2021, near Vista Del Mar and Salma Avenue around 10:20 p.m. that evening.

The victim believes that one of the bullets grazed his left hand, as indicated by the police report. Police say the shooting occurred after an argument between the two, but the relationship between Mayers and the victim is currently unclear.
