Taking to Instagram on Friday, shoe designer Amina Muaddi called the affair rumors malicious and denied any suggestion that she had an affair with the rapper behind the pregnant singer’s back.
The Paris-based designer’s statement comes after the internet was flooded with rumors and unfounded reports regarding the status of mom-to-be Rihanna’s relationship with the father of her unborn child.
The pregnant pop star, who is expected to give birth to her first child with the rapper in the coming weeks, has reportedly ended their relationship after alleged footage of him cheating with designer Amina emerged – according to XXL.

She went on to explain how Rihanna’s pregnancy should be “one of the most beautiful and celebrated moments” of her life, and expressed her respect and admiration for the pregnant singer.
