Influencer Louis Pisano has apologised after spreading a ‘reckless’ rumour about Rihanna and A$AP Rocky.
Louis shared that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky had split up after he cheated on her with Rihanna’s designer.
Now, Louis as apologised for the “dumb decision” to share the claim about the couple, who are set to become parents this year.
Sources close to the couple denied the affair, saying to TMZ it was “100% false on both counts, 1 million percent not true. They’re fine.”

The couple have since been spotted together on a holiday in Barbados, and Louis has issued a statement saying: “Hi all, so I’d like to address the situation. Last night I made a dumb decision to tweet some information I had received. 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 that tweet, press send and put that out with my name on it.
“I fully accept the consequences of my actions for my tweets 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 am going to move away from.”
They also said they’d take some time away from Twitter, to “start using my platforms better.”
The tweet Louis originally shared about Rihanna and A$AP Rocky has now been deleted, but read: “Rihanna broke up with [ASAP] after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.”
After hearing about the fabricated affair, Rihanna’s designer issued a statement of her own which branded the rumour as “vile.”
She wrote on Instagram: “I’ve always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media doesn’t deserve any response or clarification, especially one that is so vile.
“I initially assume that this fake gossip – fabricated with such malicious intent – would not be taken seriously.
“However in the last 24h I’ve been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to speak on topics regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits.
“Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated times in one’s life. Therefore I have to speak up as this is not only directed towards me but it is related to people I have a great amount of respect and affection for.
“While Rih is continuing to live in her serene, best dressed pregnancy life I go back to my business – I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend!”
The cheating rumours come just days after Rihanna spoke lovingly about her boyfriend A$AP Rocky in a new interview as she discussed the pair’s relationship and preparation for their first child together.
The pregnant star gushed over rapper A$AP Rocky as she graced the cover of the latest edition of US Vogue showing off her baby bump in a skin-tight red lace jumpsuit with matching gloves.
