“I’ve been way too wrapped up in Twitter drama,” the user wrote in an official statement.
If you were wondering how the seemingly random rumour that A$AP Rocky was cheating on his pregnant girlfriend, Rihanna, even came to be, we’re finally getting some answers from the original source.
In case you missed it, on April 14th, @LOUIS_via_ROMA took to Twitter to report on some gossip he had heard, writing, “Rihanna & A$AP Rocky have split. Rihanna broke up with him after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.”

“Amina was responsible for designing Fenty’s footwear offering and Rihanna is often seen in custom shoes from her own label,” the user continued. “A$AP and Amina is not new though as she was seeing him years ago and also collaborated with him on a collection of shoes.”
They went on to report that “things apparently hit the fan at Craigs,” a popular Los Angeles restaurant, adding that Rihanna allegedly “unfollowed Amina on Instagram.”
Sources close to the couple promptly spoke with TMZ, shutting the claims down, and Amina herself wrote a statement on her Story denying the “malicious” allegations.
In his response this afternoon, Louis has admitted to making a “dumb decision” in tweeting the information he had received about Rihanna and Rocky. “I’m not going to talk about sources, blame others for a discussion that was started, etc. because at the end of the day I made the decision to draft the tweet, press send, and put that out with my name on it.”
“I’d like to formally apologize to all parties I involved with my actions and for my reckless tweets,” he continued. “I fully accept the consequences of my actions 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 going forward I’m going to move away from.”
Louis shared that he plans to take a break from the app, and in the future wants to use his platform to spread more positivity. “Again, I apologize to them for this unnecessary drama,” he concluded – check back in with HNHH later for more pop culture news updates.
