Rihanna And A$AP Rocky Released The First Images Of Their Baby — But It Was Allegedly Done Because Of Paparazzi Photos

"Yesterday, she FaceTimed me to tell me that paparazzi took unauthorized photos of their baby and planned to release them. So, she said if anyone was going to put it out, she wanted me to."

Yesterday, you may have noticed that Rihanna made her first TikTok to post the first look at her 7-month-old baby with A$AP Rocky.

That same morning, Hollywood Unlocked published the first exclusive pictures of their son looking, of course, very cute.

Then, that afternoon, paparazzi pictures of Rihanna, A$AP, and the baby taking part in a beach photoshoot in Malibu were published by various tabloids — a few hours after RiRi's TikTok and the exclusive pics went live.

Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee took to Twitter to claim that the timing of all this was no coincidence — but that Rihanna released the images in response to the "unauthorized" paparazzi pictures.

Since the new photos of ASAP and Rihanna’s baby is out let me tell you how this happened. Yesterday she FaceTimed me to tell me that paparazzi took unauthorized photos of their baby and planned to release them. So she said if anyone was going to put it out she wanted me to.

"She wanted BLACK MEDIA to be the one to do it since she wasn’t going to be given the choice," he wrote on Twitter.

She wanted BLACK MEDIA to be the one to do it since she wasn’t going to be given the choice. First, I’m honored they would trust me and kinda sad it had to be that way. I wish they were given the choice. Kids are off limits here at HU. I guess some folks don’t care.

Rihanna previously said that the reason she and A$AP hadn't shared any details about their child was that they “just didn’t get around to it yet." She explained, “We’ve just been living. But I guess there’s a certain freedom that comes with kind of just, like, getting it out there.”
