A$AP Rocky and Chanel Iman Get Cozy at ‘Mandela’ Premiere
A$AP Rocky‘s latest New York appearance is far less controversial than when he dapped up Pacers basketball player Paul George after his team defeated the Knicks last week (it was controversial to Knicks fans at least). The Harlem rapper hit the streets earlier this week (Nov. 25) for a screening of ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ at New York’s Ziegfeld Theater.
The ‘Fashion Killa’ rhymer attended the event — which was hosted by Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, U2 and Bob and Harvey Weinstein — with Victoria Secret model Chanel Iman, and they’ve been seen together frequently at big events.
Rocky has had Iman on his arm at a few high-profile events — that wasn’t the case with his ex-girlfriend, Iggy Azalea. The couple have been spotted together at the MTV Video Music Awards and during New York Fashion Week. The model was even caught wearing Rocky’s grills at the Jeremy Scott fashion show and admitted she shops his closet. The two have been dating since earlier this year.
The A$AP Mob leader has remained tight-lipped about his relationship with Iman, however. He said “no comment” when radio personality Nessa questioned him about an Instagram photo of them embracing while wearing matching Air Jordan Is.
In a photo posted on Iman’s Instagram page in May, she revealed something more than just a platonic relationship with the captioned “Thug Love.” The snapshot, below, was taken while Rocky was in the recording studio during Rihanna‘s Diamonds World Tour.
Iman was born in the same place where Rocky takes some of his musical influences from — Atlanta. She moved to Los Angeles when she was a child and started modeling with the Ford Models Agency when she was 13. She appeared on various magazine covers (Teen Vogue, Vanity Fair) before becoming a Victoria’s Secret model in 2010.
