The rave-themed baby shower came just two days after Rocky was arrested while arriving at LAX. However, the pair did not let the arrest ruin their celebration for their unborn little one.
According to HipHollywood, the rave-themed bash was held on Friday night (Apr 22) at a studio in Hollywood.
Guests in attendance were not allowed to film or take photographs, however some photos emerged online of T-shirts they were gifted at the “over-the-top soiree".
Attendees were asked to wear bright neon-coloured outfits to match the T-Shirts they were gifted.
The celebration was a family affair as some of Rihanna’s loved ones flew in from her hometown of Barbados for the special event.
Partygoers went home with gifts including T-shirts with throwback photos of RiRi and Rocky as kids that read, “I Went 2 Rih & Rocky’s Rave Shower and All I Got Was This Amazing Shirt.”
In an interview with Vogue, Rihanna shared her dream unconventional baby shower. “No brunch, no blush tones. And no animal-shaped nothing,” she said.
The 'Work' singer added: “Personally, I want a party. I want everyone to be plastered and crawling out. And it’s got to be co-ed! Don’t put me on no wicker chair somewhere with gifts at my feet where everyone is staring at me.”
The baby shower was reportedly postponed following Rocky’s arrest on Wednesday (Apr 20) in connection to a 2021 shooting.
The 'Fashion Kills' rapper and his beau Rihanna had arrived from Barbados when he was arrested at a private terminal at the airport.
Rocky was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and released on $550,000 bail. The alleged victim claimed Rocky fired multiple shots during an argument in Hollywood on Nov. 6, last year.
The victim allegedly received medical treatment for a minor injury after one of the bullets grazed him in his left hand.
Police searched Rocky’s Los Angeles house and reportedly discovered multiple guns.
In other A$AP Rocky related news, the rapper allegedly has been secretly messaging British mother-of-three, Jilly O'Donnell, behind Rihanna's back.
The British mother, 45, told The Sun that she and Rocky had been secretly messaging each other from December 2021 until last month.
