A social media star has apologised for a ‘reckless’ tweet, which claimed that Rihanna, who is pregnant, and her partner A$AP Rocky broke up over infidelity
Influencer Louis Pisano has apologised for spreading a false rumour that A$AP Rocky and Rihanna split-up because he cheated on her.
On Friday, Louis said sorry for making the “dumb decision” tweet out the claim about the couple, who expecting their first child.
As the rumour spread, Shoe designer Amina Muaddi, who was accused by Louis of cheating with A$AP Rocky, called the claims malicious and denied any suggestion she had conducted an affair with the rapper behind the pregnant singer’s back.
Sources close to Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have also denied the fabricated affair – telling TMZ: “100% false on both counts, 1 million percent not true. They’re fine.”

The couple have since been snapped together in Barbados.
In a lengthy statement, Louis said: “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.
“So I’d like to formally apologize to all parties I involved with my actions and for my reckless tweets.”
They then went on to say: “I full 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 added they will be taking “time away from Twitter” so they can “start using my platforms better.”
In a now deleted tweet, Louis said: “Rihanna broke up with [ASAP] after she caught him cheating with shoe designer Amina Muaddi.”
Amina responded to the circulating rumours on Instagram, saying: “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 assumed 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.”
She continues: “Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated time’s 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.
Amina concludes with: “While Rih is continuing to live her serene, best dressed pregnancy life and I go back to my business – I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend.”
Rihanna is expected to become a mother for the first time in a matter of weeks.
